Minnetonka Audio Software is now shipping a new low-cost DTS Surround Sound encoder called SurCode CD Professional. SurCode CD Professional encodes 5.1 Surround Sound to the DTS format for audio CDs. SurCode accepts the Surround master as any 6 .wav or .aiff soundfiles, and creates a DTS-encoded .wav file. The DTS-encoded file can be burned onto a CD using any software that records audio CDs, such as Adapteks Easy CD Creator, and the DTS-encoded CD can be played in any home theater system, home audio system, or car audio system that has a DTS decoder. SurCode CD Professional is a fully licensed encoder certified by DTS, which can be used to encode commercial releases.
