What's the main difference between DTS 5.1 & Dolby Digital AC3 5.1.
Do you prefer DTS or Dolby Digital ?
I have DVD9 DVDs & I want to encode them to DVD5.
They are having audio options - DTS & DD.
Which is better?

DTS 5.1 @1536kb/s will sound better than AC3 5.1 @448kb/s
But since you are encoding to DVD5, you probably want to use the lower audio bitrate option of 448kb/s AC3 (to save more room for video bitrate) , unless the running time is very short
One audio is DTS @768kb/s & the other one is DD @448kb/s
I would still use the DD track @448
dts is usually included as an "extra". dd(ac-3) or pcm required on all ntsc dvds to be in spec, mpeg audio also allowed for pal.--

I'm with pdr. DTS takes up more space that could be given to improving the video quality, and without superior audio equipment it can't be said to sound any better.
Because they are different codecs using differing methodology of bit rate and masking theories. Some engineers are just better at doing these things than others are.
Doing double blind testing, I seriously doubt that anyone on this earth could repeatedly hear the difference.
I enjoy DTS but not ALL DTS soundtracks are equal. If you're doing DVD5 I'd go with the Dolby.
