    I was just curious.. at the end of some movies,I have seen listings for DTS, Dolby digital, and another listing for SDDS (sony dynamic digital sound)..is this another kind of specific audio? I was just curious as i have never seen it mentioned. anyone?

    It is a totally separate 8 channel audio mixing format. Only the very best theaters have it. I think theres a listing of the theaters that are equipped for it on the sdds website: www.sdds.com
    Sony have catagorically stated that they never intend to introduce SDDS for the home market (or so other members here have informed me).

    Besides, theatrical Dolby Digital and DTS is not by any means the same as the DVD versions of the these sound system.

    Dolby uses different bitrates, and DTS uses an entirely different compression scheme if I'm not mistaken...
