I have been playing dts cd's since the early 2000's on my Sony 2 channel player with true 5 channel sound. The key was I used an optjical cable. I was playing them in my dvd player, but one day I accidently put a dts in the cd player and it worked. It will play continuous or random without a problem. I recently up graded my reciever to a Marantz sr5013 and it only sounds better.
