Yes it would still be loosless vs compressed example:

DTS “core” contains data for a 5.1-channel system, operating at 44.1 or 48kHz, with a bit rate of 1.5Mbps (mega-bits per second).

DTS-HD MASTER AUDIO: delivering audio that is bit-for-bit identical to the studio master and at super high variable bit rates — 24.5 Mbps on Blu-ray discs

-- DTS-HD Master Audio features a bit-stream so fast and the transfer rate so high that it can deliver 7.1 audio channels with 96k/24-bit sound identical to the original and in 2.0 channels.
