    Today I received T3 region 3 which has Dolby Digital and DTS tracks, i normally listen to DTS if the disc has it, but i read somewhere that the DTS track is not as good as the dolby one, is this correct?
    So which track should i view it on for the first time?
    Are any of these tracks 6.1?

    simple to find out.
    1)pick key scene (which will ahve lots of action, deep bass and lots of srround sound use
    2) put on DD
    3) rewind
    4) replay with DTS and decide

    as you can switch audio tracks on the fly this is not a problem.

    And where does the news come from that the DTS isn't as good??
    Sounds to me that somebody wants to scare us away from buying our cheap R3 (which I have but no DTS decoder here:()

    DTS statement not being so good was on this forum, can't remember where though.

    well the wham bang is best to test how deep bass goes and compare then. Although I agree: subtle moments can show off the superiority of any of the 2 tracks just as well.

    DTS seems to have tighter deeper bass but i thought the Dolby track sounded more open at the higher frequencies and don't forget this was a 384kb/s Dolby track i here the region 1 448kb/s track is even better, i just thought yes the surrounds work theyre great everything sounds like it should buttttttt something was missing, and i think it was the higher frequencies which usually i can hear on DTS but didnt this time, some of the sounds seemed muffled to me but i'll watch again and see if i was having a bad ear day.

    I did a very quick test last night with the intro, I found the DD track sounded somehow smoother, and the DTS track sounded rougher, but that could have been down to DTS sounding louder, with my low powered amp being pushed a bit to much.

    I will have a closer listen when I get time to watch it.
