    As far as I know it has a matrixed DTS-ES and a DD-EX soundtrack.

    On my set-up I have a more obvious centre rear from the DD soundtrack. The centre rear is there on the DTS track but it is slightly more subtle.

    If I remember correctly, the Region 1 edition uses dts-es discrete, which is true 6.1, while the Region 2 is dts-es matrix, with the rear channel matrixed into the surrounds.

    I have Gladiator and T2:SE in DTS (region 2). Both are labelled as DTS 5.1 but T2 automatically turns on the Matrix 6.1 decoder whereas Gladiator just stays in normal DTS.

    R1 Gladiator is DTS ES Discrete
    R2 Gladiator (UK) is DTS ES Matrix despite the 5.1 on the packing, engage the surround back channels on your amp and you´ll be ok (assuming you have an amp/receiver/processor with EX/ES decoding).

    R2 Gladiator (Spain) NO DTS!:rolleyes:
