    DVD-Audio Explained :
     

    DVD-Audio is a format for delivering high-fidelity audio content on a Disc. It offers many channels FROM MONO to 5.1 surround sound in either Mono or Stereo at various sampling frequencies and sample rates. Compared to the CD format, the DVD format enables far higher audio quality. The format on this particular disc has nothing to do with reprocessing sound into stereo, pro logic nor has sound been remixed in any way. The sound on this disc is completely natural MONO and the sampling rate given is at its highest quality never before released which is not capable on the CD format.

     

    Sampling rates on a CD today is now considered limited, where as on the DVD- Audio format it can be 16, 20 or 24 bit, with sampling rates of 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 or 192 kHz. Different sampling sizes and frequencies can be used on a single disc. Audio is stored on the disc in LPCM format which is UNCOMPRESSED or LOSSLESSLY COMPRESSED unlike the CD format.

     

    The DVD-Audio player may downmix surround sound to two-channel stereo or mono if the listener does not have a surround sound setup. The downmix capability is limited to two-channels not to other configurations, such as 4.1. With this, it is still different to a normal CD except in that you are still getting a much higher sampling rate.

     

    DVD-Audio discs commonly contain Dolby Digital of the audio (with lossy compression, usually downsampled to lower sampling sizes and frequencies) in the DVD-Video section. The downsampled sizes are still of higher quality than the CD format. This is done to ensure compatibility with DVD-Video players that do not include DVD-Audio.
