    Default Eagles DVD-A

    Is this what I want? I was looking for the Hell Freezes Over and I guess the Melbourne one is great too.

    It say DTS digital surround sound.

    I will be playing it with my oppo through 8 channel.

    DTS from what I know about DVD-audio is not the same on those discs.

    I didn't think so either but just wanted to get some input from the forum.

    Wow! The one listed in the link you provided is awful pricey. This is a DVD film of the concert with a DTS soundtrack. I own it and it's quite good.

    Here's a couple less expensive options for you.

    DVD Audio (DVD-A) btw is different than these discs. It's a hi-rez audio format similar to SACD - Super Audio CD.

    I own many DTS audio only disks and the quality though not quite as high as SACD is still very very good. On par with redbook but usually in multi-channel surround.

    Thanks for links. I wasn't going to buy that one just used it as an example. I do shop around for the best possible price but thanks for the lookout nonetheless.

    This is what the DVD-A version looks like.

    Both SACD & DVDA sound outstanding to me, I can't discern any difference in SQ between the 2 formats.

    This looks like DTS CD, Cathy. I have Steve Miller and BTO in this format; both are good.

    This is not a DVD-Audio disc. It is a DTS encoded CD-lossy audio compression for 5.1 audio, playable only through a DTS audio decoder found universally in AVRs. The aforementioned Hotel California is a DVD-A disc with both Dolby Digital & DTS surround tracks on the video side and 96khz/24-bit MLP high resolution audio for the 5.1 mix and 192khz/24-bit for stereo.
