Santa Ana, Calif. — “The Expendables 2-inch Blu-ray disc from Lionsgate Home Entertainment will be the first Blu-ray disc with a soundtrack optimized for DTS Neo:X 11.1-channel surround, and DTS promises more.
The $39.95-suggested disc, available Nov. 20, features a DTS HD Master Audio 7.1 mix that was specifically designed for processing by A/V receivers and other home-audio components incorporating Neo:X post-processing technology, a DTS spokesman said. “For those who have a Neo: X enabled receiver, the 7.1 mix is optimized to get the best up-mix performance on a Neo: X system for playback on up to a 11.1-channel system,” he said.
DTS adds a pair of front-height channels, or a pair of front-wide channels, or both to 7.1- and 5.1-channel surround systems.
The Blu-ray disc also features 5.1 Dolby Digital for the Spanish soundtrack and 2.0 Dolby Digital for an extra English soundtrack.
