    I think it is on DTS CD as well.. I think i would prefer the 5.1 DTS cd over the stereo SACD in this case.

    I have the DTS CD, CD, and SACD. It's been awhile since I listened to the DTS CD, but I have always found the use of surrounds to be a bit weak. There isn't much going on there.

    The SACD beats the CD in my experience. I've done extensive comparisons of "My Heart Will Go On" on the soundtrack discs and the Celine Dion A Decade of Song CD and SACD, and the song is much smoother with a deeper soundstage on the SACDs.

    I haven't heard the SACD but the DTS CD was a dissapointment.There was no surround at all and the bass "suffered" too.I might get the SACD then.
    Do anybody have the Dances With Wolves soundtrack on SACD?
    Any thoughts?

    I find it a step up over the redbook CD, but not quite at the best level of Super Audio sonics.

    Definitely worth a purchase, though. [​IMG]

    I have:

    SACD
    Star Trek: Nemesis
    ET
    Jerry Goldsmith
    ALison Krauss Live
    Footloose
    Top Gun

    DVD-A
    Glory (2 channel)
    Film Busters
    Elvis

    DTS
    Police
    Studio Voodoo
    Sampler

    My Marantz 8300 SACD playback is crap, thus I value the hybrid discs for the CD layer. DVD-A is inconvenient in that regard.

    time to surf.

    thanks

    Good luck, Chris. (Didn't realize that Nemesis score had an SACD release. Nice that Varese is supporting hi rez as they do a lot of film score releases. Would love to have SACD of their The Right Stuff/North and South disc.)

    Anyone pls chime in if you have heard anything about a multichannel SACD re-release of the Titanic score.

    I wasn't impressed with the DTS sample of Titanic.

    But looks like I will be buying about DTS discs next week!

    anyone recommend the Bach DTS disc? Is Air the tune used by Coolio?

    to me, DTS-ES beats DVD-A and SACD hands down, no contest. use of particular player shoudn't be an excuse (SACD). that just tells me poor planning etc. on the part of their camps.

    still looking through music direct.

    Thankfully, its a hybrid (too bad it took Sony all this time to do what they arguably should have done from the beginning--a hybrid disc with DSD stereo and multichannel).
