Lately I've been noticing that whenever I watch movies that have strong soundtracks, especially jazz and classical but normal rock/pop too, that my speakers (Ascend 340s) really SING! Am I imagining things, or do movie soundtracks sound much richer than Dolby II Music or Neo:6 Music or Stereo or Pure Direct for some reason? My DVD player is a very basic Panasonic with a digital coax connection, generic (lowest end Recoton) cables; my CD player is a Sony ES carousel on a generic optical cable connection. Receiver is a Marantz 5400. So it can't be to any huge difference in connections or components...is it just something about the the Dolby Digital format? How does this compare to SACD or DVD-A music quality? All my CDs are the old fashioned 2-channel variety.
