Hi, everyone. 1st time poster but longtime reader. I'm somewhat confused by the whole original soundtrack vs. 5.1 remix debate. Many DVD's, particularly those by Paramount and Columbia, have both 2.0 and 5.1 soundtracks. What is confusing is trying to figure out, on older movies before around 1993, if the 2.0 version is the original Dolby Stereo track as played in the theaters or if it's the downmixed version of the 5.1 on the disc. I don't like "compromised" soundtracks because I feel something is missing. I like having the original track for completist's sake. Can anyone shed some light on this?
