I have a 7.1 system with four surrounds.
When I say "back surrounds," I mean the ones way back. DTS gives me 5.1 with two surrounds (the sides, in my case), but when I kick in Neo6, it gives a nice matrixed mix between the four surrounds. I can hear the difference.
It's kind of an academic point, though, since he was talking about a 5.1 system, but I just threw in the Neo6 comment because that's what I usually have going. If my system was 5.1, I'd just use regular DTS.
