D1071.msu is the sound upgraded edition of D1071.m. You may read the review and check the screenshots for D1071.m to get an idea of the treats this show has to offer. The sound is, of course, much improved. There's a trade off, however. Due to a/v sync issues, the editor had to reduce the speed of the upgrade audio by 1% and used brief stills at regular intervals to keep things in sync. In most instances, the stills are imperceptible, but, f you look closely, you might see an errant drumbeat or lip movement. In addition to the sync issues, there are some cuts in the upgrade audio that necessitated use of the video soundtrack.
