    I've just bought a 900 quid THX Ultra JVC amp and to be honest I've not reallty heard any DVDs , Episode II etc that sound any better than just plane old DD or DTS. Is it just me or can any one recommend a DVD that really lets the ES or ES soundtracks shine?

    Any help would be most welcome!

    Cheers

    Paulh.

    I have this, and while it has some great bass, I didnt particularly notice all that much rear centre channel action (ooo-err). Can you recommend a chapter or two and I will have another listen.

    Not a great film though.

    It is, but works quite well if you engage ES decoding.:)

    Add Monsters Inc and Atlantis to the decent EX/ES titles. Unbreakable is another.
