For your reference:
Dolby Digital is a digital sound compression technique developed by the Dolby Laboratories Licensing Corporation.
Supporting 5.1-channel surround sound, as well as stereo (2channel) sound, this technique enables a large quantity of
sound data to be efficiently recorded on a disc.
Linear PCM is a signal recording format used in CDs. While CDs
are recorded in 44.1 kHz/16 bit, DVDs are recorded in 48kHz/16
bit up to 96kHz/24 bit.
If you have a Dolby Pro Logic Surround decoder, you will obtain
the full benefit of Pro Logic from the same DVD movies that provide full 5.1-channel Dolby Digital soundtracks, as well as from
titles with the Dolby Surround mark.
