    I am thinking of buying an extraspeaker to make it 6.1 but if there are not many films that use 6.1 then I wont bother just yet.

    Full listings are available on the Dolby and DTS websites. A few Region 2 off the top of my head are:

    Pirates of the Caribbean
    Blade 2
    LOTR FOTR and TT 4-disc
    Seven 2-disc
    Terminator 2 Ultimate edition
    Gladiator
    AOTC

    There are more but the overwhelming majority of releases are still 5.1

    I have Pirates of carribean, Blade 2, Gladiator and Terminator so might be worth getting the extra speaker :smashin: .
    I go for region 1 rather than region 2.

    The Haunting in DTS-ES 6.1 should give your system a good workout!

    The extra speaker will also allow such formats as DTS Neo:6, Logic 7 and DPL IIx to be fully implemented with sources other than DVDs.

    The guy at sevenoakes said 6.1 would not be that great in my bedroom as the size of my room is only 12ft by 10ft :(
