Good to see Dolby in the lead in the digital race to be the leader as number one in digital sound.I personaly prefer Dolby Digital as I use it in cinema and at home on D.V.D. I did a Dolby course as a technical manager with the cinema chain I work for, they brought a tech over from Dolby in the U.K and he said then that Dolby was in the lead. The course was a very intresting one and has helped a few times when faults have occured. So come on Dolby! (sorry D.T.S supporters)

I'll bet at least 80% of those SDDS installs are due to the deal with AMC and Loews. Good to see Dolby and DTS are the leaders by a wide margin!
