    I was just wondering which DVD's people use to showcase their AV systems. Best discs for 5.1 , DTS, Picture, menus etc.

    So far my faves are

    Saving Private Ryan for the 5.1 and the menus which really set up the right mood for the film from the moment you put the disk in.
    Also Shrek for the joys of colour.

    Best pic:

    The Nightmare before Christmas

    (probably Toy Story and A Bug's Life are even better but don't have them in my collection)


    Best surround effects (and excellent pic, too):

    The 5th Element, The Matrix


    Best LFE:

    The Long Kiss Goodnight


    Best multichannel music:

    Roy Orbison Black and White Night (DD and DTS 5.1)


    Best 5.1 mix:

    The computer animation in the extras of The Lawnmower Man

    (that's how I would like to see the use of multichannel music in future)
