DTS 2.0 + Digital Out
DTS 2.0 + Digital Out denotes the dual ability
to pass the DTS encoded digital bitstream
to an external DTS decoder for playback
as well as fold down the digital surround
soundtrack for playback in a 2-channel
environment through analog outputs.
This refers to the difference between the
maximum and minimum level of the sound.
The dynamic range is measured in units
of decibels (dB). When the dynamic range
is compressed (Audio DRC), the minimum
signal level is increased and the maximum
signal level decreased. This way, the
volume of loud sounds such as explosions is
reduced, while the sounds with a low level,
such as human voices, are easier to listen
