Anyone else want to discuss dts vs. Dolby 5.1 and their experience?Hohoho. I turned to DTS in the early/mid 90's after a series of demos at the stereophile show in Chicagoa at the Palmer House. It was the early days - laserdisc, baby, LD. Still have the player (and the *ack* Millenium 2.4.6, which was the hot poop back in the stone age) and a set of the discs, as well.Difference on LD was noticable - shockingly so. I think, as a whole, it's smaller now, differential-wise, on DVD, and on some, I can hear no change at all. With my older Maggies the differences (midrange) were startling.DTS tends to provide more definition, more precision, and a smoother sound to my ears. In my current digs and setup there's less difference then ever, primarily as a function of the room and setup (bad, and bad, but demanded by Spousal factor). Jurrasic Park in DTS remains one of my guilty-pleasure house-is-empty scenes.DTS music I've found to be a mixed bag - but some has been quite fun. Hell Freezes Over* is a fine event in multi-channel, and so is Sheryl Crow's Globe Sessions.The good thing about DTS v DD is there is a difference in sound for most people - and with some sources it's as noticable as vinyl v CD. If you do a blind test make sure you level match! DTS has always seemed to run a bit hot (loud).Sunrunner4* Look, you can't have done audio in the early 90's without a well-worn copy. I sold more B&W's 603's with Hotel California then you'd think is possible. And more 805's and Mirage M-790's (showing my age) with Jennifer Warnes Bird on a Wire than you'd think have money to buy.
