Any DTS 96/24-compliant hardware device can decode DTS 96/24. Which is basically a DTS 'core' lossy encoding with ultrasonic frequency content added back in. (It's still lossy). DTS 96/24 AVRs etc have been common for many years now.I stand corrected. But I think you know what I'm alluding to. None of my players and pre/pros are capable of hi res 96/24 replication from DVD~V......just the Core lossy 16/48. So what player/DACs does Jim utilize to access the higher def 96/24 from DTS?
If you feed a DTS 96/24 encode into a 'plain' DTS-compliant device, it will decode the same DTS 'core' without the ultrasonic content.
Unless you are a bat you are unlikely to hear any difference, in a properly conducted comparison.
Ripping software like DVD Audio Extractor can also rip the DTS 96/24 data, or just the core, depending on settings.
