I hate PowerDVD with a passion, WMP11 is my media player of choice for most formats because of the strong software links to Windows MediaCenter. I began searching for a way to play my beloved Nirvana – Nevermind [DTS] – 03 – Come As You Are [DTS].dts
I started my quest and tried dts codec after dts filter. I didn’t have much luck at first, but then I found something interesting by chance.
What I’m referring to is a rather cute little filter that provided perfect sound quality for me. It comes with an easy installer and works fantastic compared to the other filters I had struggled with. The filter I’m talking about is simply named dtsFilter. It allows analogue output or digital output where most dts filters only support SPDIF output. I have to say it’s very suited for Creative multi-speaker output.
“Great! Give me the download link!” I hear you cry, but first I need to get one thing clear.
The program setup is in Korean!
- Install Instructions:
- Firstly download and Install dtsFilter
- Next, visit Start Menu\All Programs\DTS+AC3 ÇÊÅÍ and run the red Icon labelled DTS+AC3 ÇÊÅÍ ¼³Á¤
- A dialogue box should appear called DTS+AC3 ÇÊÅÍ ¼³Á¤ Here you will find the speaker configuration device settings. I simply selected the option ?? 3?? + ?? 2?? + ???? (which I’m sure means 3 front, 2 rear and subwoofer).
- Now click ok and open your .dts files with Windows Media Player!
It’s also worth saying that if you have any dts audio files in .wav format you can simply rename them to .dts for full support too. It’s a shame that WMP’s music library doesn’t list .dts files, but it will detect playlists for the more crafty of us here.
Fantastic. Now all you need are some quality dts recordings! I’d heard Nevermind thousands of times, but with the dts version you can really hear sounds that were inaudible before. Experience the clarity for yourself today!
