Toshiba, the first manufacturer to introduce a Super Progressive Scan DVD-Video player with DVD-Audio capability, has always made an effort to exploit the full potential of the DVD format. DVD-Audio benefits from the mass data capabilities of the optical DVD disc to produce spectacular, advanced-resolution two-channel or multichannel music, accompanied by value-added features, including text, video slides, and more.
According to Toshiba, the vast majority of hardware manufacturers and software studios have expressed support for the DVD-Audio format as the next-generation standard for delivering high-resolution audio content on optical disc.
What makes DVD-Audio sound so good? DVDs inherent advantages in high-density media storage makes possible a higher level of digital-audio performance than any other packaged medium previously available. Toshiba DVD-Video/DVD-Audio players are equipped with leading-edge 24-bit/192 kHz digital-to-analog converters from Analog Devices, designed to deliver the full sonic benefits of a two-channel DVD-Audio performance. With its astounding 144 dB dynamic range and a frequency response from approximately 2 Hz to 100 kHz for two-channel stereo audio, DVD-Audio marks a significant milestone in the quest for audio perfection.
DVD-Audio can also deliver up to six channels of full-bandwidth content. In this mode, the DVD-Audio format utilizes Meridian Lossless Packing (MLP) decoding for ultra-high resolution (24-bit/96 kHz) multichannel DVD-Audio programs. During playback, the MLP function "unpacks" the data and outputs it in its original bit-for-bit high-resolution form for sonic purity and fidelity that is absolutely faithful to the original multichannel digital master used to author the disc.
The effect is one of total immersion in the music. Listeners have compared the experience of DVD-Audio to being present in a concert hall where they can actually "hear" the air in the room, with every nuance of the musical performance, including subtle harmonics and hall reflections re-created in vivid detail.
For added flexibility, Toshiba DVD-Audio players also include built-in Dolby Digital decoders.
