I started this thread on the doom9.org forums to see what the doom9 people thought about the use of DTS (as opposed to AC3) for distributing ambisonic content.
One thing that I have noticed about the Doom9 people is that they have a heavy favouritsim for AC3… and I wanted to work out why.
The reason for this favouritism is interesting. Basically, practically all DVD players can spit out AC3 as analog stereo straight into a TV but few can do that with DTS... what that means is that DVD players tend not to have hardware DTS decoders.
The Doom9 people are quite focused on manipulating movie DVD’s so their expertise is very audio-visual focused.
The question is what is the implication on this for Amabisonia?
