To give credit where it's due, those effects are there because of the talents of the mixers, not anything DTS did. The sound would be the same if the 5.1 or 7.1 mix was on the Blu-Ray as uncompressed...

In this specific scenario, you should buy the Oppo BDP-103 instead and use the HDMI connection. I say this because if you have invested in a Marantz AV8802 you are presumably interested in bass...
