Motor Booty Affair


Any info about playback method? Are these in Dolby 5.1 or DTS? Can the flacs be converted to WAV and burned to a CD and play as Dolby or DTS?

For those of us who do not use a computer to play music in surround this info is needed.

Can’t imagine you can convert to wav and put on CD as the file sizes would be to big. But you could burn to a DVD & play in a DVD player. The DVD player should be able to determine if the format is 5.1 or DTS
