Cool Re: DTS or Dolby Digital?

DTS Master Audio is a killer especially with great Sci Fi movies, way to go Fox

Try the Fantastic Four the Silver Surfer, XMen III, ID4, Planets of the Apes

I now have the ability to listen to either and I find more often than not I choose DTS, unless it was originally a 2 track that was remastered into a multi. (e.g. I watched the David Bowie - Glass Spider Tour DVD the other day and the DD soundtrack was better to my ears than the DTS)

Back in the day, the comparisons between the 2 showed that DTS was quite a bit louder than DD. Once the sound levels were adjusted, IIRC, it was difficult to tell the difference between the 2. (Note that this as 7-10 years ago) Can't say that I have done much, or any testing, myself.


DTS is an optional component of the DVD Specifications, not a mandatory one.
It's got nothing at all to do with Spielberg.
Lots of players will not decode DTS - but they should all pass the bitstream to an external decoder.
