Audio Equipment and Home Theater Audio : Dolby Digital, DTS, SDDS

Dolby Digital, DTS, SDDS

Any ideas of the pros and cons of these digital systems for films ? How hard is a SDDS decoder to calibrate ? Do they go out of whack easily ?

Oh Lord, you gave them eyes but they cannot see...

playback> it is digital it is automatic. u can touch anything. if there is some distortion u will not notice. actually is nothing to notice everything happens in the real time. cd reader reads converts into sound ...

recording is up to the producers. what they want to get. p.s they still use mono microphones... maybe they using 6 microphones... than after they mastering... maybe all microphones are synchronized, maybe they control them manually. music sequence they inserting extra... i guess front stereo speakers always goes first for music.

Are you talking about particularly for a theatrical setting or for home theater systems (which, as far as I know, do not support SDDS).

Re: Dolby Digital, DTS, SDDS

As far as I know, there are no home-theater SDDS decoders (nor any SDDS-encoded videos or music that could be played on them....)

Dolby Digital was selected as an 'official' DVD audio format because of it's versatility, supporting a wide range of bit-rates and between 1 and 6 audio channels (as of the time the DVD standard was established).

DTS (again, at the time the DVD standard was established, as I understand it) used a higher bit rate and was strictly a 6-channel codec (though of course, you could just leave some channels 'silent' if you wanted to encode fewer than 6). However, most audiophiles will tell you that DTS sounds a little richer and deeper, particularly for musical content.

This is my feeling as well; the music in Fantasia 2000 gives me goosebumps in DTS...
