output from the analog output. It is recommended that you connect
the digital output of the player to the digital input of this unit.
DTS 96/24 made it possible to achieve a wide frequency range of over
40 kHz by increasing the sampling frequency to 96 or 88.2 kHz.
Moreover, DTS 96/24's ability of 24 bit resolution offers the same
frequency band and dynamic range as 96 kHz/24 bit PCM.

multi-channels. Therefore, sources recorded using DTS 96/24
technologies can be played in high sampling frequency, multi-channel
audio with ordinary DVDs and CDs.
