Play DTS-encoded music via AirTunes and iTunes
Authored by: vansie on Feb 09, '05 10:24:08AM

You'd have to make up for the rather major delay that will occur when playing back your audio through Airtunes from DVD Player, which seems to be several seconds coming out of iTunes at least. For music the latency issue is moot, but even small audio sync issues can really ruin the movie-watching experience, let alone a delay of several seconds. Of course it would be nice if Apple would just take care of that from within DVD Player with some kind of dynamic latency compensation so there'd be no need for manually fudging your settings until it seems OK. Let's hope for the best.

My $0.02.

Where do you download DTS files, from www.sr.se,
and where did you bought that converter,
this sounds really cool, I have tried this with the optical
cable for Airtunes but I didnt get 5.1 to work.

Here is a URL at which you will find numerous DTS files.

on the next page you will find more. Try the Car Chase as your first one - it's great

The optical-to-coax converter is from Radio Shack. They also have a coax-to-optical if you ever need one.
