    How important of a feature is DTS 96/24 on a low-priced receiver? Thanks

    Not at all. There are hardly any titles and the improvement over normal dts is questionable anyway.

    There are very few titles that actually support it, but it is a neat technology. It give you the abality to have 96 khz / 24 bit sound from a regular DVD player that is similar to SACD and DVD-A. And it is backwards compatiable with regular DTS. It is neat, but not necessary, especially on a cheap receiver that may not be able to take advantage of the extra resolution.

    It is a cool feature, but I truly wonder if you would hear the difference on a low cost, low end receiver.
