Can 24/96 downloads be burned to DVD-A discs?

Keep a few limitations in mind with regard to all the programs mentioned in this thread:

 

"The maximum permissible total bitrate [for a DVD-A audio stream] is 9.6 Megabits per second. Channel/resolution combinations that would exceed this need to be compressed. In uncompressed modes, it is possible to get up to 96/16 or 48/24 in 5.1, and 192/24 in stereo. To store 5.1 tracks in 88.2/20, 88.2/24, 96/20 or 96/24 MLP encoding is mandatory." (From Wikipedia)

 

None of the applications mentioned above provides MLP compression, with the exception of DiskWelder Chrome (which costs almost $3000, in large part probably due to some hefty MLP license fees).

 

Sadly, that's the only standards-compliant compression method for DVD-Audio. (Maybe we should create a new "unofficial" DVD-Audio standard that uses FLAC instead of MLP as the lossless compression algorithm... :))

 

But don't sweat it, Sammie: as long as you're only dealing with stereo tracks, you don't need MLP compression, and in that case, even the free DVD-A authoring tool on SourceForge that I mentioned will "do the trick"...

 

Please: no beverage consumption while reading my posts. I won\'t clean your monitor.

If you had wished to store 24/192 albums I could understand your need. For 24/96 why not burn the tracks to DVD-V?

When I first had the same need as you I also thought I needed DVD-A and so bought Diskwelder Bronze, but then I discovered that the Mac program Toast could burn 24/96 tracks with basic documentation and track navigation onto DVD-V, just by dropping the data files into its window!

 

I suggest that you look into this (or PC equivalent if that is your platform).

running under OS X 10.5.6!

So is it an OS X improvement 10.4 to 10.5 that allows burning audio tracks (AIFF) to DVD-V?

Some more detail might be helpful:

Under Toast 8 go to the Video heading in the main window.

Within this select DVD-V.

Then go to the 'option' box and set the encoding to 'Custom'

then hit the 'more' button and check 'encoding' button: set "Audio Format" to 96 kHz, 24 bit.

Note that you can also use 'Menus' button to set style and content of display of your audio tracks.

Let me know any problems.

I have Sony DVD RW DW-D150A on my 2006 Mac Pro - this was the standard Apple 'universal' disc writer. It can write CD -R, -RW and DVD -R, -RW, +R, +R DL, +RW. I've used all of these except DVD+RW.

If you have a specific drive in mind I suggest you do a Google search for its spec.
