    DVD-Audio is a different thing from DVD-Video with DTS, or from DTS on CD. DVD-Audio uses packed audio (no lossy compression), often at high sampling rates and with large sample sizes. (Then they throw in in-band watermarks; go figure.)

    A DVD-Audio disc may have DVD-Video content for backwards compatibility, but playing the DVD-Audio part requires the use of a DVD-Audio player.
