DTS Virtual Surround devices for consoles?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Anyone know of any DTS devices aside from the two listed in Mad Lust's guide? I searched the gaming section and didn't find anything on it. The Xbox One only supports DTS surround and it is killing me. I have no interest in game chat so anything that receives a toslink will likely work.

 

Thanks!

Looks like the Beyerdynamic Headzone Game supports DTS over optical:

In my experience, its the only one that supports anything besides Dolby Digital 5.1 over optical/toslink

The only solution I have seen is to buy an HDMI switch box that separates the audio signal and has an optical audio out. That way you can use a Mixamp or the like. 

 

However, MSoft claims they will patch Dolby over Optical sometime soon. 

 

Some tvs will do this, but not many.

you and me both. When I 'upgraded' to the Xbox one I lost a lot of features. If they would hurry up and release a chat adapter and patch in dolby over optical, we would be set. 

 

As it stands you cannot adjust voice and game volumes, which is incredibly annoying.

The only other thing I've found is the Pioneer SE-DIR800C, but it's a discontinued wireless headphone system.

 

Fortunately, the Dolby Headphone DSP/DAC/transmitter box is said to actually have an analog output, so you're not forced to use that particular set of wireless headphones. It even has the DH1/DH2/DH3 room mode adjustments.

 

Unfortunately, the eBay prices are stupid high, as in $300+, and given that, again, it's DISCONTINUED, I don't see that getting any better...actually, come to think of it, my JVC/Victor SU-DH1 also has DTS decoding and room mode selection, and of course, it's discontinued too. I suspect common components in both of them being discontinued parts in favor of the cut-down versions used on the DSS and Mixamp.

 

A bit more research reveals that the transmitter module itself is designated the TRE-D800. Good luck finding a standalone unit for sale, though...I'd certainly like to get my hands on one just to pit it against the SU-DH1.
