    Default The next generation of Hi-Rez 7.1 audio?

    Has anyone try this? is this real or conceptual?

    DTS-HD High Resolution Audio can deliver up to 7.1 channels of sound that is virtually indistinguishable from the original soundtrack. It is DTS high definition audio to Dolby's Digital Plus.

    DTS-HD High Resolution Audio provides audio at high constant bit rates superior to standard DVDs to produce outstanding quality - reaching up to 6.0Mbps on Blu-ray discs and 3.0Mbs on HD-DVD.

    It can carry up to 8 channels at 96kHz sampling frequency / 24-bit depth resolution, thereby providing high definition surround audio on content where disc space may not allow for DTS-HD Master Audio or Dolby TrueHD formats.

    Like its high definition Master Audio, DTS-HD High Resolution Audio bit stream also contains the DTS 1.5 Mbps core for compatibility with existing DTS-enabled home theater systems, and delivery of 5.1 channels of sound at twice the resolution found on most standard DVDs - thus representing an instant upgrade in sound quality.

    Support for DTS-HD High Resolution Audio is optional in both HD DVD and Blu-ray formats.

    Connectivity: DTS-HD High Resolution Audio requires an HDMI 1.1 or higher connection to a DTS-HD High Resolution Audio decoder, unless it is decoded by the player and output via the analog outputs.
    I am sorry, I have no opinion on the matter. I am sure you do. So, don't mind me, I just want to talk audio and pie.

    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    Ya know, I hate to say this, but, my speakers sound their best on XM radio via Directv.
    It's the baseline rcvr. which converts a digital signal to ANALOG!
    Which is then processed thru my rcvr., so I don't know WHAT I'm listening to?
    But, I am getting TIRED of the 'upgrade koolaid' this industry is serving!
    I refuse to argue with idiots, because people can't tell the DIFFERENCE!
