    Ok, big baby time here but if I'm going to the trouble of puting out a state of the art DVD that maximizes audio and video performance why wouldn't I use the most advanced version of dts? CastAway and Gladiator sound better!! Not that I'm complaining, I really do like having Fifth Element in dts and the picture is free of artifacting etc, but still. At least the receiver will do matrix so I can b.s. myself

    Sorry about the rant.

    The Fifth Element was released theatrically in 5.1, not in DD Surround EX or its DTS equivalent. Superbits is about maximizing a/v quality, not about remixing the soundtrack for every new HT wrinkle.

    The Fifth Element: Superbit doesn't have a DTS ES track because the movie soundtrack was recorded in 5.1. It's that simple.
    Otherwise, Welcome to the forum Aaron. [​IMG]

    ES/EX simply adds a center rear channel or the illusion of a center rear channel.
