I use software called Burn on my mac mini to burn my HDtrack stereo flac files onto dvd-r in dvd-a format but I have never burned surround sound files. Do they fit on a dvd-r without compression or is it necessary to encode into MLP first?
Ripping the LPCM tracks from the BD should be easier than the DTS-HD MA tracks. DVD Audio Extractor should be able to handle the task although I haven't specifically used it to rip LPCM from a BD. Where DVD Audio Extractor falls short is ripping DTS-HD MA encoded tracks because it only extracts the DTS core. For DTS-HD MA, eac3to is a better option to preserve the full DTS-HD.
Assuming DVD Audio Extractor rips the LPCM tracks (which i believe it will), you could then burn them to a DVD-R disc. I use ImgBurn for most disc burning, however, you will almost certainly not be able to fit them onto a DVD disc without compression. Authoring the files to DVD-A with MLP would be an option. You would need special DVD-A authoring software such as Cirlinca or DiscWelder to perform this task.
There isn't any easy way to just burn the MCH files to a DVD disc without compression or special software that I'm aware of, unless you spread the files over multiple discs. Alternatively, you can play the LPCM files with a software player or a universal player like an Oppo, and you wouldn't need to burn the files to a disc at all.Edited by scolumbo - 3/29/13 at 12:56pm
