About DTS Surround Sensation

DTS Surround Sensation processing contains significant psycho-acoustic information that alters human perception, making one believe that sounds are occurring outside the boundaries of the two-speaker system / headphones. Developed with a critical understanding of acoustics and years of experience in dealing with the properties of sound, DTS Surround Sensation creates an optimal surround sound experience from just two speakers, creating a three-dimensional wall of sound. DTS Surround Sensation also supplements the weakened stereo image and ambience of digitally compressed audio, while keeping the monaural components (such as solo vocals) unchanged.
