    Can anyone give me a URL that may explain the differences / pros-cons of DTS NE0:6 and Dolby PL 2?

    I have a bunch of different DSP's to choose from on my receiver, and I'm trying to choose the one to leave as default.

    I can't offer a url, but i can offer my own insight. I prefer DTS NEO:6 for my 2 channel music sources because the sound stage is more present across the front 3 with the right balance of sound coming from all three front speakers, only occassionally do I hear a real cues from the surrounds, the rest of the time, the surrounds and surround just provide some nice ambient fill in the background. With DPL2 I notice a less coming from front left and right and a lot more coming from the surround left and right and not much coming from the surround back. The more sound coming from the room, but it's rather unnatural. For Most 2 channel sources with video, i rather prefer dpl2 because it uses more of the center channel and the sound cues are better matched to what's going on on the television screen.

    Really depends on the source too. I still switch back and forth between dpl2 and dts neo:6 depending on the CD or movie, so I don't know if one generic default is gonna be the best choice.
