    Thanks, Don. It seems like theres an alot of formats out there for DvD. Is it like Dts es,a stand alone format, or will it work with a dvd that has Dts Es, or Dts? How are Dts cds?

    your receiver will decode all forms of dts. if a dvd were to have 96/24 dts it would also have 48/24 dts for backward compatibility. i personally like dts-cds.

    I'm no expert (on anything!) but DTS 96/24 is DTS's version of high resolution audio (comparing (in DTS's eyes) to SACD or DVD-Audio.)

    2 DTS 96/24 discs that are out are the Queen's A Night at the Opera and Queen's Greatest Video Hits 1. Both are very impressive. I really hope that more DTS 96/24 titles are in the pipeline...

    I don't think they can do DTS 96/24 Video DVD's as there is not enough room on a DVD to accomadate video and DTS 96/24 audio. This is likely just a audio DVD format only until the next gen DVD's come out with much higher storage capacity.

    There's enough room, but I don't think anyone is making masters at 24/96.

    The compression ratio is actualy higher then the normal 20/24/48 currently being used,so it's "benefits" kinda go out of the window.The word oximoron comes to mind.

    It's hard to say right now, Lewis, since there is very little available in that format for us to judge.

    I am just guessing, but maybe the folks at DTS feel there is more gained during the D to A conversion by having the higher sampling rate than is lost by the additional compression.

    On the DTS Demo #7 DVD, there is a small clip called "CHRONOS." Its a video presented in DTS 96/24.
