Having a giant screen for your home theater doesn’t mean a whole lot unless you’ve got big audio to match. In fact, you can have a smallish screen and still create dramatic home cinema experiences with a kickin’ sound system.
The innovation of Blu-ray, and its support for uncompressed audio soundtracks has further heightened the experience. In our weekly Blu-ray release roundups you’ll note that the majority contain DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1-channel surround tracks, while others feature Dolby TrueHD 5.1.
Having recently celebrated “DTS 7.1 Day,” the technology provider asked its Facebook fans, What movie has the best DTS audio soundtrack? Because most of the responses are available on Blu-ray in DTS-HD MA, we rounded up 10 of those for you to show off to friends as killer audio demo material.
Unfortunately one of the responses that garnered much praise was Jurassic Park’s—the Laserdisc version! We’re still waiting for that movie to arrive on Blu-ray, because when it does there’s sure to be a lot of home theater rattling.
In the meantime, click here to view the DTS Facebook fans’ picks for best DTS audio soundtrack. What else do you recommend?
