hi AV members , i have a question about audio on DVD's. Is DTS running at half bitrate still better sounding than Dolby ?

i'm on the fence on buying certain DVD's with DTS as it may not be worth it.

chat soon

At that sort of price, wouldn’t you consider getting a cheap Blu-ray player?
Blu-rays can be bought for a similar price & you get a big improvement in both the audio and picture.

hi guys , @Hippo yes your right in both areas (video and audio) but most of the movies i watch (80's) haven't been transferred to Blu-ray which is disappointing. Btw i also have a OPPO UDP-203 , i don't want to have say 90% DVD's and then 10% Blu-ray. I don't want to get used to Blu-ray (video and audio) and then go back to DVD and be disappointed , so it's best for me to stick with DVD

thank you simon for the link , very interesting read in the Sound section.

They might not be on Blu Ray but you'll probably find them all in HD on digital formats from iTunes/amazon/googleplay which will be a lot better looking than an NTSC DVD
