Which is better? Im talking about DVD playback using my PS2 as the player and my Z-5500s connected via optical cable to the PS2. Should I use DD or DTS? Im under the impression that DTS is better, or am I wrong? Thanks...

dts is better but not by a whole lot.(dts is less compressed than dd)

Yeah DTS is a high end option on some players for a reason.

DTS definitely, although your ears should tell you that.

Most DVD's I've ever rented don't seem to have DTS tracks at all.

I love DTS. Sounds awesome. I can definitely tell the difference. I was watching Appleseed the other day and had it on DTS surround sound and the difference with Dolby Digital was huge. I could hear gun casings fall with directional sound with much more clarity than when I had it on Doby Digital.

Sucks that most DVD's don't have this feature but I guess it all comes down to saving on costs.

DTS all the way..

It also seems like movies with DTS, take better advantage of the dynamic range.. For example, the sound differnece between a person talking and a car wreck seems much greater..

DTS is by far the best!

What would be even better is if our soundcards had DTS live rather than dolby digital live.

Sometimes movies/dvds that don't orginally have dts tracks get it as a bonus in special editions.
