DVD is a special kind of disc that has a large storage capacity. This disc is mainly used for watching films and music. The sound quality of a DVD is generally very good. But it depends on the quality of the discs. The better quality DVD you opt for, the better the sound quality will be.

The resolution of DVD video is better than the C.D. It's sound quality is also better than the C.D. The sound quality of a Digital Video Disc is dependent upon the speakers of the Digital Video Disc player. To get a good sound you need to have a good Digital Video Disc player with good speakers. If the sound box is good it will definitely produce a good output.

DVD sound are mainly of two types.

Dolby Digital

Dolby digital sound is one of the newest entries in the arena of DVD sound. This specific sound type is of very good quality. DVDs containing Dolby digital format offer a very realistic sound. This format gives the audience the feeling that they are experiencing the incident directly, not through a Digital Video Disc. There is an option called surround sound. This very sound gives the listener a feeling that the sound is coming from every direction. Actually in a surround sound format, the sound comes from six different sides. These six sides are, near right, front right, center, near left, front left and the sound that comes from sub woofers. Subwoofers give a low bass sound. Dolby digital sound is also very popular for films. Many modern cinema halls use this format.

DTH (Digital Theatre Sound)
