    DTS came along as a competitor format back in 1999.

    It has already appeared on Laserdisc.

    Many HTphiles loved the crisp clear quality of DTS.

    Many times it was a huge improvement over a DTS track. Also DTS track were recorded at a 1509 bit rate.

    Then DTS began to grow, many titles coming out on DTS were mostly sci-fi or action films.

    The bit rate was lowered to 754 bits, due to space purpouses.

    But things began to get worse, many DVD´s with DTS didn´t do a good use of DTS tracks. Many of them were equal to the DD tracks or even quieter!

    Also many titles don´t have a necessity for DTS.

    (Lady and the Tramp 2, anyone?).

    The real question: Is DTS becoming a scheme for studios to dominate the High Quality Phile to buy the titles, instead of bringing them, the best quality?.
