    Default Saving private ryan DTS

    Just wanted to get some input on wether or not to upgrade to the DTS version. I have the regular dd version now and recently switched out my Jurassic park dd for the DTS & that was a good improvement.

    but it's not for late-night viewing.

    Upgrade? Do you mean there is a new one or something? Didn't the original have DTS? The one I have, from when it first came out... has DTS.

    There is a DD only version and a DTS version. Its somewhat hard to find the DTS version now.

    Also, the "special edition" of it is DD, not DTS.

    My version only has 5.1DD & 2.0. I have the original 1999 release but without the red DTS logo at the top.

    Hmmm, guess I got lucky. I got mine from Columbia House DVD club, which I am no longer a member of.

    Absolutely. The DTS track on SPR is one of the best.

    To be perfectly honest, I've never noticed a bean of difference between DD & DTS.

    Now, given the choice, I always choose DTS. Why, you ask? If I have to explain.....

    If you already have a DVD of SPR, it makes no sense to me to "upgrade" to a DTS version. If you could sell the DD version for the same amount as the DTS version costs, then sure, go ahead, but otherwise it is just silly, in my opinion.

    I for one notice a HUGE improvement on the DTS version of SPR. May eventually get the DTS version of JP if it is still available.

    I understand the original DD version has some documentaries and perhaps some commentaries (not sure about that) that the DTS version does not have (something about the DTS soundtrack uses more room on the DVD than the DD soundtrack...or that could be BS). Can anyone verify that? I have the DTS version and the sound is phenomonal.

    DTS definitely uses a lot more space than DD. It can be about 50%-100% more.

    I have always want to check out DTS version ever since I bought my DD version. Well, this discussion pushed me over and ordered World War II Collection - SPR - 60 years D-Day version. I supposed, beyond checking out DTS version, the rest of the collection worths to own from its historical perspective (and it makes a great addition, since I enjoy collecting solid WWII epics).
    I am sorry, I have no opinion on the matter. I am sure you do. So, don't mind me, I just want to talk audio and pie.

    Uhh, I could be wrong, but I don't think that version has dts. I was looking at that disc package, but steered away from it because no dts.

    well, according to my research on HTF forum discussions, this is the digipack that has DTS 5.1, BUT no DD 5.1 (only DD 2.0), and confirmed by Amazon description:

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...s=dvd&n=507846

    I suppose we'll see if the package arrive. In the event that I get another DD 5.1 version, I'll sell one on FM. I still would have bought the collection, though.

    Oh ****, I didn't even know that existed. I'll pull my head out of my ass now. I was thinking of a different one.

    You win.

    actually, you were right on the other version (2 discs set) that has only DD 5.1 with the ammo-box packaging.

    Which is what I was thinking of.

    Nonetheless, you will surely enjoy the dts. That I know I am correct on.

    The zone 4 version has both dts and dd5.1. Also available is dts plus pro-logic and a version with dd5.1 plus pro-logic.

    I haven't watched this movie in years until today. Just got my amp back and was in the mood for a good action/war movie. This fit the bill. Sure I only have the DD version but I'm still very impressed with the sound quality (or is it my amp? :p ). Long but damn good throughout and a bit of a tear jerker at the end... Love this movie! Now I gotta buy the DTS version and sell this one on ebay lol.
