DTS-CD, DTS Audio CD or 5.1 Music
(official name) is an audio Compact Disc that contains music in surround

to the Red Book standard, except for the way the music is encoded on
the CD. Where regular CD's store the music as linear PCM, the
DTS-CD stores music using the DTS format.

player, a DTS-CD is compatible with most, if not all, standard CD players
with a digital (S/PDIF) output, only requiring a receiver that can decode
