I just recently hooked up seven divas and two SVS subs to an Onkyo TX-DS989. All I can say is wow. It is INCREDIBLE to listen to Gladiator in DTS-ES 6.1. It blows away the local theaters, hands down. But anyway, I have three questions:


1) What DVD titles are in 6.1 surround sound? Is there a list available somewhere on the internet, or does someone have a list?


2) Where is a good place to buy DVD-Audio discs? Now that I have heard 6.1 it is near impossible to go back to stereo.


3) Do you need a special DVD player to play DTS audio discs? Will my Panasonic DVD-RP91 play a DTS audio disc like the ones here http://www.dtsonline.com/consumer/dts-md.pdf ?


Thanks

I will answer # 3. Any DVD (even older players that will not pass DVD DTS through) or CD player will play DTS CDs using S/PDIF passthrough. To a CD or DVD player the CD DTS data looks just like standard CD LPCM. A DVD player with DTS decoding built in can also decode them.

I'll answer #1.


Try this link: http://homepage.ntlworld.com/bwescombe/dts_dvd.htm


I don't know how up to date the list is, but it seems to be pretty thorough. It also notes movies that are in DTS-ES 6.1 Discrete. This is a movie only listing, no DVD-Audio.

BTW, I have the Diva 6.1's, 2.1's, C3, and an SVS CS-Ulta in a 7.1 configuration connected to a Denon AVR-5803. I agree with you that 6.1 soundtracks are awesome.:D
