 I was wondering if someone could shed some light on the current possibilities
that lie in the area of DTS and Dolby encoding and DVD authoring suites which
allow for surround DVD audio playback. From what I have so far uncovered it
seems that surround encoding plug-ins and standalone software is still beyond
the reach of a non-profit, personal studio owning, poor student types such as
myself. Is anybody aware of a relatively cost effective method of producing
high resolution surround audio DVD's? I suppose the best way is probably
getting copies made by specialized companies (Like Minnetonka) which charge on
a per DVD basis but I would be interested to know if anyone is aware of any new

technology which has brought the ability to produce surround DVD audio to the
prosumer level. Thanx.
