I own the Sony STR-DE985. It obviously supports DTS, but there is nothing on the reciever or in the manual that says it supports DTS-ES. When I watch my Lord of the Rings (DTS-ES 6.1) movie, it shows up on the front of the reciever as decoding 3/3.1 . I was under the impression from DTS that a regular DTS decoder can not decode the DTS-ES 6.1 format. Am i getting a true discrete 6.1 decode??? or is it a Matrixed 6.1 decode??? How does this format get decoded in my reciever, please help??
