I received my new Dances with Wolves - DTS DVD this weekend, one of my favorite movies of the past two decades. I have heard so many people rave about the quality of the DTS track that I was really excited to watch this. I noticed a lot more background static especially at the beginning and then at various times throughout the movie. It bothered me at first, but I think I got used to it. I think it gives the movie more of a theater feel. The other thing I noticed about the sound was that it felt muted during the buffalo hunt scene and a later battle scene. I can't remember if this was how the original sounded. Otherwise, the clarity was pretty good, and the movie had a great picture. My biggest complaint was with the subtitles. I am pretty sure the movie originally had subtitles under most of the Sioux speaking scenes (and there are a lot of these scenes). The only way I could get English subtitles to appear was to turn them on in the main menu. However, this became very distracting during the English speaking scenes. Could any DWW-DTS owners please comment on the audio and the subtitles?
