    Ok, the first part of my question is about dts 96/24. I went on dts' website and read their little explanation, which made sense, but i'm confused as to what formats use 96/24. I thought at first it was on dts music discs, but it seems not so. Where do you find dts 96/24?

    And secondly, I'm looking very strongly at the Marantz sr5300. It is essentially the same as the 6300, except without as much power, and one less digital input. Not a big deal, BUT I looked and they have the same chip in them, and the 6300 supports dts 96/24m while the 5300 does not. On dts' site they say that the "extension" on which the 96 is carried, is also used for dts-es discrete. The 5300 does discrete, and if it has the same chip as the 6300, why can't it do 96/24? Is it just so marantz can say the 6300 is a step up, and sell that for more $$?? So should all receivers that handle discrete also be able to handle 96/24 or not?

    The equipment will have the 24/96 logo on it if it can do the decoding. I have only heard it on a DTS demo disc(a Queen track). It sounded good, so hopefully more software will be released(at least until we get HD-DVD and some sort of lossless compression scheme).

    They used to sell them, Dalton, so you might call or email someone at DTS about getting one.

    You can buy "Queen Night at the Opera" on DVD-A at Best Buy for around $20. This contains the whole DTS 96/24 soundtrack, and yes it does sound really good.

    Strangely enough, the 6300 doesn't sport the 96/24 logo.... ?
