high resolution pc files 24/96 or 24/192 to dvd-a

Can a high resolution pc files 24/96 or 24/192 be simply burnt to dvd-a blank disc and then played on a universal transport player?

If so, isn't this a high quality way to listen to high resolution files?

What am I missing other than the convenience of having a zillion pc files or the effort to burn to dvd-audio.

Would not the advantage be less issues with jitter and other usb spdif related issues?


Yes, That is the correct way to listen to your Hi-Rez files. Make sure that your DVD player is capable of playing back a 24/96kHz audio signal. There are some great deals on older blank media. I like to burn mine at the slowest speed anyway. You will get better quality and no coasters.Cirlinca DVD Audio Solo Ultra is the software that I use. You can try it for 30 days free on a trial. Good Luck!
Sure, you can use HD-Audio Solo Ultra and make sure to burn on JVC/Taiyo Yuden DVD-R.

I, too, use the Cirlinca DVD software. I'm authoring music DVDs, not DVD-A, so I'm limited to 24/96kHz source. Now that HDTracks is starting to offer even higher resolution, I may go the DVD-A route. I'm using an Oppo 83 connected to a Benchmark DAC1 so even the hi-rez gets upsampled to 110kHz sample rate.

You still have the potential jitter issues from the player, but that's effectively moot with a Benchmark DAC.

thanks for the information. I am looking at getting a NAD T585. I am not sure why it would not play a 24/96 audio signal if its a universal player.

By the way,

I had downloaded a free software program called DVD-Audiofile to use to burn dvd-audio.

Anyone heard of it?

Playing a cd does not mean less jitter than playing off of a hard drive.
Hey never mind I will try Cirlinka. Can it do 24/192 or only 24/96?
