Just WOW on your first part of the answer. Can you source some information on this, or is it a personal opinion?
As to your second part, can you explain how this matters?

My take, they are 2 propriety audio solutions that provide different means to a problem. No one is better than the other.

Hey Man, I guess that this is a personal preference. I can not stand the sound of Dolby Digital, it sucks;

As far as the fact that a DTS stream uses more bandwidth really makes more difference in home entertainment when the total size of a bitstream is limited by the medium, i.e. cable television, DVD etc.. As far as PC gaming, it really makes a huge difference because the visual effects of a game use so much bandwidth that the developers often leave very little bandwidth for the audio. I guess that it is just a matter of priority; since every file or medium is limited to a total of "X" bandwidth, where do you allocate the bandwidth, audio or video? Thankfully with newer Blu Ray technology that question is pretty much moot, but there are still limits.
