    I've only heard DTS 5.1 music but it's so impressive that I can listen to music I wouldn't normally be able to listen to.
    Try getting hold of a DTS demo disk. Or go the whole hog and buy a sample of each.
    Only you can decide whether you like the music presented that way.

    Have you also thought of Dvd-Audio discs?
    They all have a dd 5.1 mix on them and some even have
    dts too. Give Queen's The Game Dvd-Audio a try - it has
    an absolutely fantastic dts surround mix.
    If you do want to get a dts or dd cd then go for Sting's
    Brand New Day dts cd. Excellent use of all speakers and
    superb quality of sound.

    The newly released Tubular Bells 2003 CD comes with a bonus DVD that contains DD5.1 and DTS5.1 versions of some of the tracks (if you buy this version, there is a single CD version too).

    It's the first time I've heard any 5.1 music on my setup and I was very impressed by it. Works particularly well with Mike Oldfield's stuff as you become totally immersed in the music. I'm not sure it works with all forms of music though.
