    I hope this hasn't been asked before.... Can I play DVD audio disks on my Pioneer DV-353 DVD player? The book says that it will not, but I have read in some home theatre magazines that some players that say they don't sometimes will play DVD audio. Any help would be appreciated.

    Chris, you can generally play every DVD-A on the market on any DVD player out there. The thing is, you will only get the music in Dolby Digital or DTS if you do not own a true DVD Audio player, losing out on the benefits of the high resolution mix.

    Thanks a lot. So there is better quality than DTS and 5.1? Wow.

    How much better is the "high-resolution" mix as compared to the DD or DTS mix?

    On a revealing system, it can be better by quite a large margin.

    Tony, I had the same question. I have two Yes DVD-As and I've been extremely impressed with the audio quality and I'm able to play them in DD or dts only, I don't have a DVD-A player (yet?). It blows my mind to think that as good as these sound now that they are capable of even better audio!

    I have also seen that there is video included on some DVD audio, is this compatible with regular DVD players as well? Thanks
