    Dolby DTS sound sound question

    I hadn't really thought about this until someone else on the forum mentioned it, but since my CTS Coupe has the Dolby DTS surround sound capable stereo, it should be possible to listen to music CDs encoded in that format, as well as just using it when watching a DVD movie with surround sound audio.

    That prompted me to take a second look at my music CD collection at home, to see if anything I owned said it was encoded in DTS surround. I don't believe any of it is ... but I see a number of albums that are, for sale on Amazon and other websites like that.

    So my question is ... if I purchased one of these DTS encoded music discs and copied it to the internal hard drive in the Bose stereo, would the hard drive copy preserve the DTS surround encoding, or would that recording process wind up converting it back to a regular stereo recording?

    (I know if I encode a track to, say, MP3 format on my computer, it loses any surround sound audio the original had because the MP3 file format only supports left and right channel stereo. Not sure what they're saving files in when you put them on the internal hard drive on the Bose system?)

    kingtj, I believe the thread I initiated a while back will answer most of your questions. Here's the link to it:
