Yes, I know DTS very, very well. I served as the head of DTS Entertainment for a while...pre IPO. I contributed to the business plan for their IPO and I probably should have stuck around for their successful public offering ... maybe I would be retired now..
I am a huge fan of DTS and their technology after having worked there. Peeking behind the curtain allowed me to see how truly passionate and committed these folks are to Audio Quality. Quality is embedded in their Corporate Culture...and it is was refreshing to work for a company that truly cares about what they do.
As do we...
You will notice I use DTS on the all of the DRS (Digital Reference Standard) products we create. You will see this on all of the Monster Music Discs, Nature's Journey, Disney WOW, etc.
We have a genuine passion to create and deliver the best products possible. A product cannot qualify for the DRS Trademark unless it meets very specific criteria with respect to original native A/V source material.
The Audio Tools on our Disney WOW disc are Laboratory Reference Standard and were created in partnership as well as approved by DTS when they were first created. I can assure you they are 100% accurate for professional calibration.
Also, we do not believe in any dithering, cross conversions, up conversions, or any other signal processing when we handle native A/V source material.
We are also very specific about how Audio Mastering is handled. We only master Audio using a custom built Analog Tube system ... we never master using digital. I could go on and on about why, but suffice it to say, it yields superior results.
We also use very specific techniques, equipment, and engineers when it comes to video encoding as well. You will notice very high bit rates and superior encodes on DRS Products.
We really hope people enjoy our products and we will continue to create more in the future. I know we cannot please everyone, as there are more opinions than people, but we can surely try to please many...
