    My question is simple and to the point. If I record a WAV file at a high bit depth and sampling rate, can I burn this file directly to a DVD in the Audio_TS folder and make it play back in a DVD-Audio player? Or, does it have to be compressed into the Meridian Lossless format?

    I know I could record the WAV's and archive them on the DVD for re-authoring later. I was just looking for a way to do some high resolution transfers of analog recordings I have around.

    I'd recommend taking a look at DVD-Audio Solo. It will author your WAV files to DVD-A and wilkes (our resident high res audio guru) has recommended it for reasonably priced authoring software. It also appears to have a fully functional trial.

    Yesish, the trial is somewhat crippled but lets you create a few DVD-A's with some tracks to see if it's right for you. Solo is much more user-friendly than the free solution.

    Depends on your channel count.
    With DVD-A, you are limited to a bitrate of 9.6Mb/sec, and a 24/96 Stereo file is well under this.
    You can even go as high as 24/192 in stereo without MLP.
    MLP is mandated for 5.1 at 24/88.2 or 24/96, as these exceed the bitrate.
    FWIW, the current build of DVD-Audio Solo will allow 24/96 5.1 to be writen, but be aware that the disc may well refuse to play back due to the bitrate being around 13.8Mb/sec.

    Cirlinca's application really is great VFM - you just cannot go wrong for the money.
