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?
