    What exactly do I need to play these? Can I just use a regular DVD player or is it DVD-A? I have the Panasonic RV31k, could it be played on that? A little confused here.

    24/96 PCM can be played on most DVD-V players. I have a 2 year old Sony that does, but you really need to look at your player's manual to know for sure (or try a disk if you can borrow one).

    Also, in most cases, the player will NOT send a 24/96 bitstream out the digital output. It will down-res to 48/16 or perhaps 44/16.

    As such, you will usually get the best results using your DVD players analog outs for these soundtracks.

    Search the Music forum for Queen, A Night at the Opera for additional discussion.

    Enjoy,

    Brian

    DVD-V 96/24, or DAD, discs can be played on any DVD player. You will need to use analogue connections and your receiver has to be capable of accepting this sound resolution (check the manual) to take full advantage without down conversion.

    Darn. My analogue inputs on receiver are used by SACD. Oh well, thanks for answering so fast.

    Allan -

    Do you not have an open 2-ch analog input? Like CD or AUX?

    Mike,

    Output of the 24/96K bitstream from DAD discs can be accomplished on some DVD-V (and DVD-A players).

    It's a function of the individual player, and the copy protection flagging on the disc as to whether this will be output @ full rate, or downconverted.

    Regards,
