What is DTS?

DTS refers to Digital Theater Systems. While Dolby Digital is the standard 5.1 digital surround format on all DVD players, DTS is becoming a possible alternative. DTS, first introduced in the movie Jurassic Park, is now found on many film soundtracks. DTS soundtracks have been available on laser discs for the past couple of years, but we’re only starting to see DVD titles with a DTS soundtrack. There are only about a dozen DVD movies with DTS now, but you can expect this number to grow. And there are quite a few CD titles that are DTS-encoded, from Mozart to Marvin Gaye. Buying a DVD player that’s DTS-compatible shouldn’t cost all that much more and could mean higher sound quality down the road.
