As many of you know, the Hyundai Genesis has first-class DVD-Audio support from 2009-2011. (I drive a 2011).
I test-drove a 2012 and I'm not sure whether they improved the DVD-Audio support or hurt it... but I digress.
The 2015-2016 Genesis, as far as I know, dropped DVD-Audio support and replaced it with nothing.

Enter the 2017 Genesis G80. Hyundai has spun off its own luxury brand named after the Genesis sedan. The G80 is the replacement for the Hyundai Genesis; the G90 will be the replacement for the Equus.

Anyway -- talk about burying the lede -- the new G80 (V6 Ultimate or V8) supports DVD-Audio.

Let me say that again.

THE NEW 2017 GENESIS G80 SUPPORTS DVD-AUDIO!!!

I had an Acura similar to yours and never knew that it played USB 5.1. And you can imagine how many DTS CD's I ended up making, which is such a pain in the butt
What year Acura vehicle plays DTS-CDs and 5.1 in USB? What file format/sample size/bit rate? My buddy has a 2015 that I know plays DTS-CDs but he is not aware of USB ability. Thanks.

As far as I remember, it's either USB, or DTS/CD'S; I've had 8 Acura's, since '98
My current 2021/TLX/ASPEC, is USB/ONLY
My previous 2018/TLX/ASPEC, was CD/DTS/ONLY

I bought a used 2014 RDX because it was the last year that they supported DVD-Audio. In 2015 they went to DTS-CDs I believe.

All models with the 'ELS Studio' infotainment package (2015 - 2018) will play DTS-CDs via the disc player and 5.1 AAC files off a USB stick. I haven't tested any bitrates beyond 320 kbps variable (that's where Foobar2000's built-in AAC encoder maxes out), but there are reports on the Acurazine forum that it'll handle higher bitrates. The only limitation I've discovered thus far is that the files must be 5.1 - 4.0, 4.1, and 5.0 configurations will not play.
