    I consider myself pretty knowlegable on Home Cinema and DVD having bought my first player nearly 3 years ago but with the recent advance in technology I'm feel as though I'm being left behind.....

    I'm making the jump and investing in a new reciever (possibly the Denon AVR-3802) but a couple of terms leave me scratching my head. Could anyone explain the following please?

    What is the difference between DTS ES Discrete and Neo 6?

    What exactly is Pro Logic II?

    Thanks :)

    Thanks mate, they are a help. Considering I am very lazy though, is anyone else willing to give me a down to earth, 'for-idiots' explanation?! :D

    Cheers

    DTS Neo 6 is DTS's algorithm for obtaining up to 6 channels of information from 2 channel sources.

    DPL2 is Dolbys algorithm for abtaining up to 5 channels of information from 2 channel sources.

    Both can be thought as developments/enhancements of plain vanilla DPL but both can be applied to stereo as well as dpl sources. I'm not sure about Neo6 but DPL2 is able to generate enhanced bandwidth differential surround information - a poor mans DD5.1!

    DTS ES discrete is DTS's encoding system for 6.1 discrete channels of information. The extra channel is for rear surround (back) speakers. It is the only true 6.1 sound format for home theatre use and ES discrete discs are backwards compatible with ES matrix decoders as well as std DTS 5.1 decoders.
