    I have a Wharfedale DVD750s (the one with the official DTS logo on it) but every time I change a the sound in the movies setup menu to DTS, the light underneath the DD logo stays lit. The DTS light never lights up. Is this something to do with the player, the disc, or the receiver(Marantz SR4300)?

    Does it stay lit even after the film has started?

    Some films encode all of they're menus in DD but allow the option of watching the film in DTS. If you're selecting DTS under the audio setup area of the disc then the player should automatically output the right bitstream on playback.

    Oh I see. I'll check this when I get home. You're probably right. Thanks.

    :) No problem - if it still doesn't work then let us know and we'll see if we can come up with something else.

    Make sure the amp's set to "auto" as well and everything should pretty much sort itself out :)

    All the best...

    Is the DTS option enabled in the players set-up menu?
    Without any disc in go into the players set-up menu,there is usually an option to turn DTS output on or off,it is usually set to off by default.
    If this option isn't on then you wont get any DTS regardless of what you select from the discs audio menu.

    Yep, can get DTS now. Thanks guys for the help.

    Is DTS dramatically different than DD? If you had a movie that had both, which would you prefer?

    It's very much perfect taste to be honest :suicide:

    DTS soundtracks generally seem to be a little more Bass heavy, and also tend to have a little more "rear" action although obviously there are exceptions to this. I think typically, I would watch a film that had DTS, in DTS, purely for the "novelty" if you like the first time around :)

    Gives you the perfect excuse to watch a film more than once I find... ;)

    In almost every case I've heard, DTS pans sounds across the room much better than DD - DD can sound more "point source-y" if you get my drift - ie, you can tell where each speaker is in the room, whereas DTS seems to have a wider cross between the speakers.

    Also, IME DTS is more musical - music in DD sounds coarser.
