Dolby Digital TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio soundtracks are two of the most popular audio formats in the market. What makes Dolby Digital and DTS-HD Master Audio so popular, to me, is that they are the two that are the most linear and the most linear audio.
Because of the way the DTS-HD Master Audio soundtracks are encoded, the linear aspect of the format makes it very easy to mix two tracks together, but it also makes the audio track sound very linear because it can only be made up of one complete track. Dolby Digital TrueHD offers the same linear aspect of a track, but it’s a bit more complicated to mix tracks together.
I’m not quite sure why they are both linear in their soundtracks to begin with, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t good formats. I am sure that if they both had the same playback speed they’d be very, very good.
Dolby Digital TrueHD is also an excellent, but more complex, format to handle, as it requires the use of multiple tracks to create a complete track. It’s a bit more complicated to mix tracks together with Dolby Digital TrueHD because you have to play them all at the same speed.
The other one is the Playstation 5. That’s a bit of a shame because the PS5 uses the same digital audio format that the Xbox One uses, but its a more simple format because you do all of your processing within the console itself, rather than having to transfer all of the audio to the PS5.
It is a shame that Dolby Digital TrueHD is the format that everyone uses, because the Xbox One uses DTS-HD Master Audio. It is a bit of a shame, too, because the Playstation 3 and Playstation 4 use DTS-HD Surround Sound which Sony claims to be more accurate.
I don’t know what a DTS-HD Surround Sound is, and I don’t care. I know DTS-HD Master Audio is the same format as DTS-HD TrueHD. I know the DTS format is superior to the DTS Surround format and I know that DTS Surround Sound has some advantages over DTS-HD TrueHD, but I’m not interested in those things.
DTS-HD Surround Sound is a bit of a mess. It is a format that Sony claims is superior to the DTS format (the Surround format is just an alias for the TrueHD format), and Sony sells it as a format that is compatible with all DTS-HD consoles. This is why Sony has been selling DTS-HD TrueHD for several years now.
But it’s not for everyone. The DTS format is designed for surround sound consoles that have a dedicated sound card and sound card drivers. The problem here is that the sound card for these consoles is designed for DTS-HD Surround Sound, not DTS-HD TrueHD. This means that the sound drivers for these consoles will not work with DTS-HD Surround Sound.
That is not to say that Sony’s DTS-HD TrueHD is bad. Quite the opposite actually. In fact, the DTS-HD TrueHD engine is designed specifically to allow you to decode TrueHD.
