I have read the manual of my receiver, and reading about Listening mode types; I found my Marantz SR 5006 has amongst many others;

Dolby PL IIx music
DTS NEO:6 music

I have now put my receiver from AUTO to DTS:Neo,
my Spotify stream is pretty impressive in 5.1 full suround :-)

But what is the difference of these two modes, what do they do?

What will you recomend to use -- the trusted Dolby or the DTS ??

Which ever one you like better. They're competing formats that both take 2 channel audio and convert to 5.1. One is not clearly better than the other, take your pick.
