To my knowledge, AC-3 has not been adopted in zone-2 as a way to prevent piracy
(I wouldn't know what would they accomplish with this, but that's the way it
is). Mpeg-2 (not Mpeg-1 Layer 2) is a compression standard meant to occupy
minimum bandwidth in digital broadcasting, and it's been reported to be
'scratchy', as it shouldn't be able to go over 22KHz sample rate. And, as a
personal preference, analog audio is much better than digital.
