    Forgive me if this has been asked before, I only intermittently stop by here, but I was wondering if someone maintains a list of DVDs that have DTS soundtracks that are actually mastered for DTS?

    I am not talking about discs where the DTS and DD5.1 tracks are the exact same source sent through two different decoders yielding nearly identical outcomes, rather ones where the source material is optimized for DTS.

    The only two I can think of off the top of my head were Saving Private Ryan and Gladiator. I'm sure there are others though.

    Thanks.

    Most of the Dreamworks DVDs with DTS used seperate masters.

    You have to look at the bitrate on each DVD. What should be stated here is that those with a bitrate of 1504kpbs (full bitrate) and those with a bitrate of 784kpbs sound similar in regards to output. People were under the impression that SPR was at full bitrate when in fact it's not. Some the releases that have both, still sport the 784kpbs and sound incredible. Who knows why DTS stopped making DTS Only DVDs, but what the heck, if it sounds good I love it. I even recall one of the alternate HT sights having a complete breakdown of the DTS movies that have Full Bitrate and Half bitrate.
