DTS-HD Master Audio is the latest uncompressed audio format and is available on Blu-ray discs. It is the DTS standard for high-definition audio output.  This format competes with Dolby TrueHD. With upwards of 7.1 channels of discrete surround sound and connected via copy-protected HDMI cables, DTS-HD Master Audio is at the pinnacle of surround sound technology for home theater.

Dolby Digital (code-named AC3) is a compressed, lossy surround sound format that boomed with the rise in popularity of DVD in the late 1990s and early 2000s. It is also the standard audio format for HDTV programming. With one digital cable from a DVD player and ultimately other sources like satellite and digital cable boxes, home theater enthusiasts could get discrete surround sound for six or more channels. This means that they could hear unique sounds coming from each of their rear speakers, which created much more detailed, cinema-like surround sound effects at home.

Dolby Digital was preceded by Dolby Pro Logic, a 4.0 format found on many VHS tapes.

With the advent of Blu-ray, Dolby released two new codecs for the new disc format...

Sony Play Station 3, PS3 in short, is the third home video game console which is also a media player that could play back HD movies in high quality. Good news is that: What the PS3 can do is decode (unzip) the Dolby TrueHD / DTS-HD MA lossless audio and send it to your receiver as a multichannel linear PCM (LPCM) stream, which just about any modern receiver can decode. The LPCM audio is identical to the Dolby TrueHD / DTS-HD MA original format, so no quality is lost.

DTS-HD Master Audio

DTS-HD Master Audio or just DTS-HD is a combined lossless/lossy audio codec created by Digital Theater System, commonly used for surround-sound movie soundtracks on Blu-ray Disc. DTS-HD Master Audio may be transported to AV receivers in 5.1, 6.1 or 7.1 channels, at lossless quality, in one of three ways depending on player and/or receiver support.

dts hd

It replaces the old DTS audio (actually it extends it) and its main goal is to allow a bit-to-bit representation of the original movie’s studio master soundtrack. If you are unaware with the lossless term, it is a compression method that allows you to have the exact original data from the compressed data after extraction, in contrast to lossy formats which only allows an approximation of the original data to be reconstructed...

Which do you prefer: Dolby TrueHD or DTS HD Master Audio?

Hello people. I recently purchased new speakers (Acesonic 510 speakers)and a pioneer 819 av receiver capable of decoding TrueHD and DTS HD. Since my previous setup was only able to decode dolby digital and dts, how much better are the new formats? I imagine they are pretty noticeable considering the difference in quality I heard while comparing dts to dts 96/24. What are your thoughts about the new formats?

-I also have to admit a personal bias favoring DTS.

Experience Blu-ray movies at home with different surround formats

Sound that can match the studio’s master tapes… the theoretical ultimate in sound quality.

Most Blu-ray Discs have lossless audio, which means, obviously, no loss of sound quality. In short, the sound quality from Blu-ray Discs is capable of matching the master tapes from the studio.

If you have a sound system capable of using the lossless audio formats, the difference in sound quality is just as apparent as the difference in video quality. In fact, when doing demonstrations in my own home theater before I even get to explain that the sound as well as the video is high-definition the viewers make comments such as “Wow, the sound!” or “I’ve never heard sound like that anywhere.”

What do I need to experience lossless sound?

First of all, if you are just running the sound throug...
