They should have done a DTS for multi-channel people and then either a PCM or 2:0 AC3 for Stereo playback.
I am sick and tired of the fact that proper stereo is being compromised for shallow 5:1 marketing gimmicks.
In 20 years of the superior sounding 12inch Laserdisc format we never had to put up with compromised stereo. Providing the film to tape master was good the LD disc was good. In DVD a superb film to tape master can be ruined by the middle man Digital Authoring.
