    Has anyone done any critical listening to any of this material? Is there a master list of what has been released on DTS audio?

    It's going to be months before I can afford to buy my sweet DVD-audio/SACD universal DVD player. So, in the meantime I didn't have to wait to listen to Frank Zappa - Halloween that was released this year because it contains a DTS audio track as well.

    I don't know if it's something that's been around a long time or if growing/not going anywhere or how it compares to regular CD or DVD-audio so I'd like to hear some opinions.

    So far I am amazed at the sound of FZ Halloween and can't wait to get home to listen to it again[​IMG]

    I am curious if there are other DTS audio discs available and if they really do tend to use DTS's higher bitrate and if that results in better music quality. I believe that it's likely a poorer alternative to DVD-Audio so it's only whetting my appetite for what will come when I finally by my U-DVD player.

    The DTS disc I have sound pretty good. IMO they are a very satisfying way to fill the gap between CDs and true hi-res formats. Try http://www.dtsentertainment.com/ for links to what's out there.

    I sure wish they would author dvd-audio discs to duplicate how DTS-CDs operate. In other words, exactly like a CD (despite what that dvdaudiocouncil.com website says, the dvd-audios I have owned do NOT "work just like a CD". [​IMG]

    If you like DTS disks then try DVD-Audio's. They work on any DVD player. I am buying up every DVD-A I can and listening to them in DTS or DD. The 5.1 is much better to me than two channel stereo, though I'm sure they sound better in a true DVD-A player. I know you can't use them in the car or a CD player, but DVD players make CD's redundant for the home and I own a noisey truck and two convertibles which drown out most of the sound anyway. I won't buy any SACD's untill I get a universal player sometime in the future. I'm also a big fan of recorded concerts on DVD like Steely Dan'n "two against Nature" and "The Dance" by Fleetwood Mac. Try these other formats. They sound as good as DTS. Gene

    Frys had them for $14.99 a couple of weeks ago and a few for $9.99. I am not much of an Eagles fan, but the "Hell freezes over" Disc sounds incredible
