I was really looking forward to giving the X5200 Surround Back channels a real workout tonight and put Gladiator
in the Blu Ray player this evening. I remember "Denon Dave" demo of their new AV receivers at CES several years ago introducing Surround Back and the catapult scene was awesome, if any of you remember it.
Put a new Blu Ray copy of this movie in the player and the only DTS-HD option was 5.1 surround. I recall I had an older version which played Discrete Rear Surround channels on my AVR4810 but can't find my older disc to compare at the moment. So, the X5200 will have to wait for the Surround Rears to really shine.
Seems Gladiator was re-released a few years ago with better picture - but it seems on my disc I now only have a 5.1 DTS track. Anyone else observe this?
