DTS is the best. PCM is uncompressed audio so it sounds the best, but it takes up too much space so they only use it for stereo. DTS is a 3:1 data compression rate and Dolby is 10:1 compression rate. That's like a bad mp3! Have you ever been to a movie where the sound seemed all garbaled and distorted? That's Dolby 5.1

DTS 7.1 also exists but isn't used much since there aren't many people with 7 speakers and a 7.1 reciever. The New Lord of the Rings Box Set is DTS 6.1.
