Saving Private Ryan in DTS 5.1 vs Dolby Digital 5.1 in General Klipsch Info Posted May 25, 2001 Originally posted by DLUngurait: "As most of us on this BB are interested in quality audio, it stands to resason that we might in many cases (NOT ALL!) prefer DTS over DD.

I understand that DTS uses different compression but in fact it was more efficient and therefore more compressed rather than less compressed. The only evidence for this is anecdotal and as follows. My Denon 3000 DVD does not support DTS. The DVD on my computer (sony with a hollywood MPEG 2 decoder card) does. To connect the computer with the stereo I used a 10 metre (yard) RCA cable from the digital out to the Yamaha Receiver I had at the time, and a second RCA of similar length for the video. I put in a Roy Orbison DVD that had both DTS and DD5.1. When the DD5.1 track played it hopped and skiped about all over the place (as did the video) implying a bandwidth problem. When the DTS track played it didnt - it just played fine. I assumed that the DTS was more compressed than the DD5.1. I tested the DVD on the Denon with the dd5.1 track and it played fine - so there was nothing wrong with the DVD. Not exactly cast iron evidence I know but I havent tested further.
