DVD or Digital Versatile Disc is a special kind of disc that has a large storage capacity. This disc is mainly used for watching films and music. The sound quality of the Digital Versatile Disc is generally very good. But it depends on the quality of the discs. The more costly the disc you opt for the better will be the sound quality you get from it.
The resolution of DVD sound is better than that of the CD. Even its sound quality is better than that of the CD. It is almost two times better than CD sound. The sound quality of a DVD is very much dependent on the player. To get a good sound you first need a good player. A good player is necessary because only a good player will provide a good sound box. If the sound box is good then it will definitely give a good sound.
DVD sound is mainly of two types. The first is Dolby Digital. It is one of the newest editions in the arena of digital sound. This specific sound is of very good quality. DVDs containing Dolby digital format offer a very realistic sound. This format provides a feeling to the audience that they are experiencing the incident directly, not through a disc.
This format contains one option called surround sound. This gives the listener a feeling that the sound is coming from every direction. Actually in a surround sound format, the sound comes from six different sides. These six sides are, near right, front right, center, near left, front left and the sound that comes from sub woofers. Subwoofers give the sound of low bass. Dolby digital sound is also very popular for films. Many modern cinema halls use this format.
The next is DTS (Digital Theatre Sound). It is a kind of sound that reproduces a theatre like sound. It is almost like Dolby Digital format. However, the sound quality is a bit better than the previous one. This format is mainly of two types. The first is DTS-S which offers four channels. All four of them are matrix encoded. These four channels are, right, left, center, and surround. This system is very much like the standard 35mm optical Dolby stereo. The next is DTS-6 which has six different channels from where sound comes. These six channels are, right, left, right surround, left surround, and subwoofers. This system is very much like 70mm six track magnetic sound.
DTS format is becoming very popular. This format is also used in cinemas. The popularity of the film Jurassic Park also paved the way to its success. The price of this format is also quite reasonable. That is also one reason why people are opting for this system.
If you want very good sound quality from your DVDs, you must have some ideas about the discs. Always buy good discs. Try to opt for the famous brands. The main advantage of good brands is that as they have to maintain a reputation and have to survive in this tough competition, they will never give you any low quality material. It is true that some times they can be a bit expensive. Nevertheless, if you want to get a good output then what is the harm in paying a little more?
