what is...
DTS
Stands for Digital Theater Surround. Is one of the two mainstream 5.1 multichannel audio systems in present use. Compared with Dolby Digital, it has a relatively low data compression rate, which makes some people believe that it sounds better. The majority of DTS releases are still Region 1 (NTSC), although there are an increasing number on Region 2 (PAL), including Gladiator, Ali and Hannibal.
