Dolby Surround Upscaler

When I use Dolby Surround on a dts master audio soundtrack, does it upscale it to 5.1.4? Or am I hearing the Dolby digital soundtrack being upscaled? I have an sc-95.

I will give it a whirl. I thought maybe having the bookshelves instead of towers was the reason, but having a sub should mostly negate that difference. The bass capability down to 80hz is more than...

Yea, that's why I don't think the sound quality is as big as an issue as the low end bass response. I think the bigger cabinets on the pioneer will help get rid of any localization of the sub. I...
