If you are like me and use your PS3 for a Blu-ray player as much as you use it for playing games you will be as excited by this announcement as I am. DTS Inc. announced today that the coming PS3 firmware update on April 15TH will provide the PS3 with DTS-HD sound.

DTS-HD can deliver audio that is bit-for-bit identical to the studio master at high variable bit rates. The codec can deliver up to 7.1 audio at 96k/24-bit. This means that now in addition to the HD image from Blu-ray PS3 owners can now enjoy the best sound quality available, assuming your receiver can decode it.

"We are extremely pleased that Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) is adding the full spectrum premium DTS-HD Master Audio codec into the PS3 so that more than 10 million owners of one of the best selling computer entertainment systems can have the best sounding, most efficient and flexible audio technology available as well," said Brian Towne, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Consumer Division at DTS. "DTS-HD Master Audio is fast becoming the must-have feature for high definition entertainment enthusiasts."
