    If a receiver can decode DTS-ES i.e. Denon 2803, does that mean it can decode DVDs that have DTS-ES Matrix AS WELL AS DTS-ES Discreet, or does it have to have extra processing capability to decode the 6.1 Discreet track properly? I've been looking to purchase one and the "official" specs state it suports DTS-ES without mention of 6.1 Discreet but I have seen websites state it supports this.

    I don't know about the Denon 2803, but your concern is correct: Just because a receiver is labeled "DTS-ES" doesn't necessarily mean that it can handle DTS-ES Discrete (note the spelling).

    According to Denon's website it does decode the Matrix and Discrete DTS Signal.

    Unless your stuck on Denon also check out the Pioneer Elite VSX-43TX or the 45TX. Personally I thing the Pioneer's are a step above the Denon's.
