    Hi,

    Is there any way of knowing, prior to purchase, if a DVD is encoded with "master quality" DTS audio formatting at the rate of 1.4 Mbps., as opposed to the normally seen rate of 754 Kbps.

    There seems to be no indication on the DVD package, or anywhere else I've looked that provides this information.

    I would appreciate it if anyone could give me some direction on this topic.

    Thanks!
    Chuck

    This list shows the encoding rates of the DTS tracks on many discs around the world. I think it's pretty accurate.

    I don't think I've ever seen packaging which states what bitrate the audio tracks were encoded at.

    If it's a new title from the U.S., it will almost certainly be 754.

    Specifically, if it's a region 1 title released on or after November 2, 1999, it's probably 754kb/ps. There are a few exceptions, but not many.

    Aren't many of Image Entertainment's DTS titles still full bitrate?
