Default I need a clue

What is lossless audio? I have heard mention of this on the HD-DVD section and I wonder what is required to have it? How does it work? Is it worth having?

On a better audio system you can appreciate TrueHD or DTS-HD through HDMI if your receiver allows audio processing that way, or you can use the 5.1 analog output jacks if available on your HD DVD or Blue Ray player.

The majority of HD disks do not have THD or DTSHD encoded on them.
To me the sound is more open and clear, more depth. It is not a day and night difference, but with the right program material on the disk (especially music) you can appreciate it.

Both SACD and DVD-Audio are lossless (not compressed audio signal) formats as well but you must have a universal DVD player to hear these unique audio only formats. If this is what the new HD-DVD and Blue Ray formats are going to offer you will be truly amazed.
