    Is the Arcam dv27a capable of playing DTS 96/24 through its (analog) multichannel outputs without falling back to 48kHz? I bought a dvd of Phantom of the Opera (R1) which sounds terrible through my player, as it plays it at 48kHz no matter what setting. I haven't been able to find anything about this in the manual, on this forum or elsewhere. :confused:

    Funny enough my Pioneer (through optical) thrives on this 96/24 track, making this the only disc I know of which produces a better sound through optical than multi-channel in. :)

    The DV27A will play this at 48 kHz resolution - you needs lots of extra DSP horsepower to run DTS at 24/96. Having said that I wouldn't expect large differences in SQ between the two versions of the format, so the real explanation may lie elsewhere.

    HTH.

    Thanks for the info Andrew. ;)

    I got the idea that the overly clear brightness I now hear comes from mixing the disc for 96/2=48kHz. Luckily I also got a normal copy of this movie which is regular DTS and plays fine. :)
