Re: What's up with this DVD audio?

Okay, so it looks like PCM is top of the line audio? The L in LPCM must mean something then, I can't imagine the audio and really good video quality fitting on the DVD. More googling...


Cons: The main disadvantage of Uncompressed PCM (WAV or AIFF) audio format is size. It stores all audio information without compression. It's a recommended format for audio editing. Do not use PCM in final versions of DVD. Only leave it as PCM if final disc size is unimportant or if unusual distortion occurs from AC3 or MP2 compression. Common bitrate is 1536k.
Pros: The main advantage of the PCM audio is excellent quality. With PCM you can preserve all audio frequencies (even outside the range of human hearing).
