Well I've just watched "The Truman Show" in six-track Dolby Stereo Digital and what a complex film mix it's got, on par with films like "Alien" and "Heat" very complex and richly detailed with good dialogue intelligibility and some good stereo front mixing on the left and rights.
Most of the music is covered on the left and right, with occasional parts of the music mixed into the centre, but its rhythm is completely different from the left and right as well as split-surrounds.
Softer sounds like in chapter 16, when Christof, is retiring for the evening walks up to large screen all the footsteps and the breathing from Truman while sleeping, and distance ambient sounds can be heard coming from the centre channel, but only on a good home cinema set-up!
So how many of you can notice good front imaging of on screen sounds?
