Los Angeles-based sound preservation/restoration specialists Chace Audio ( has remastered film soundtracks into 5.1 or 6.1 multichannel stereo for DVD or theatrical re-release, including Gone With the Wind, The Wizard of Oz, Close Encounters of the Third Kind: The Director's Cut, Easy Rider and many others.

A large part of the remastering process uses the proprietary Chace Digital Stereo® processor (CDS), conceived and invented by Chace founder the late Rick Chace (pictured) in the 1980s. The CDS processor is a programmable workstation-based system to make true directional stereo with stereo surrounds from monaural sources.

“Within the last five years, the growth of home theater has powerfully demonstrated the capabilities of the multichannel stereo format,” commented Bob Heiber, company president. “New equipment for handling elements in extremely difficult conditions, along with a fourth-generation optical reader, is already in the works. We'll only get to the future by recovering the past, so we want to be ready for it.”
