The DTS '20-bit' is the mastering and encoded content, not the transport media (a CD), which is always a 16/44.1 format.
If using iTunes for playback from the PC itself, then there are billion things that can screw up the bit-perfect audio. The HTPC forum here on AVS is full of threads on how to address that.
If using an AppleTV or something else, then it might be settings in that device.
Easiest wat to test is to download a known good DTS file and test that, at least it eliminates the encoding side of the equation. there was a link a couple pages back to some samples.
Whoops, I forgot about the limitation of CD! I am playing back on an iMac, and others have been able to make this work on Mac's, so I am wondering why I cannot get this to work.
I downloaded the file from that site, and I still get static on playback, so that would mean it is not a ripping issue, but a playback issue in iTunes. I still need to try a DTS CD with my new ripping settings on the AVP to make sure that works.
Would the other fellow Mac users please share their settings? I am running an iMac 2 GHz Intel Core Duo, 1 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM, Mac OSX 10.6.2, iTunes 9.02, and the following settings in iTunes Preferences:General
Custom settings, 44.100 kHz, 16 bit, stereo.
Error Correction on (tried both on and off, neither way worked)Playback
Sound Enhancer (EQ) is off (box unchecked).
Sound Check (Volume matching) is off (box unchecked).
Regarding the volume settings, there are several that I located.
The Volume slider bar (upper left hand corner of iTunes window) is at maximum (to the right).
There is also a "Volume Adjustment" slider bar in the options for each individual song. The default setting was "None", but I set at "100%".
Anything else I can check?
Thanks a lot, gentlemen.
