Well, now there’s another option available on Xbox (has been for a while, apparently, but I just found it)—DTS. It’s $20 for the license. I’m a sucker and an idiot, I guess, because I paid up despite not really understanding exactly what it does.

Uh.

If you are just doing normal surround sound, DTS is literally worse than just outputting 6 or 8 channel LPCM.

DTS-HD is lossless… but so is LPCM.

The only difference seems to be the ability to have the sound localization metadata. So I guess with your headphones on the positional audio will be better.
