More about DVD-Audio
DVD-Audio uses linear Pulse Code Modulation (PCM) offering ultra hi-fi (up to 192kHz/24-bit) 2-channel audio or up to 6 channels of hi-fi multi-channel sound and 74 minutes or more of play time on a CD-size disc. Another benefit to DVD-Audio players is the fact that they can play DVD-Video discs and standard compact discs.
