it supports dolby digital (5.1) and DTS with movies. but as there are serveral incarnations of each im really not sure. i would have thought not seeing that the PS2 is getting on a bit now.

When playing DVD's the PS2 should output whatever you tell it to. My ancient NAD T550 was able to output DTS-ES from the digital outs, it just couldn't decode it.

You might also find out the sonic limitations of using a Playstation to watch films on as a by product.

My PS2 quite happily streams 6.1 sound out via the optical digital output. But, as Ian J says, there are inherent sonic limitations in using it as a DVD player.

It sounds truly awful in comparison to even a budget DVD player like my Pioneer 565A.

Which brings me nicely onto the Limit DVD players which are on special offer in the Power Buy forum here :D
