What are you talking about? Of course DTS/Dolby hi-rez formats were backwards compatible, they were designed to work with "legacy" decoders that didn't support them. For example DTS-HD has a "core...

Have you attempted what I suggested to see if you can even hear a difference between 48kHz and 96kHz sample rates, irrespective of Audyssey (which introduces another variable)?
