It's possible RIP Old CD with tracks in DTS, always retaining the DTS encoding

Hi everybody, I don't know if my question is OT, if yes I ask you sorry.
I have some old CD DTS that I would rip in my server and play them with Emby in DTS audio, it's possible?
I tried to rip the DTS CD with foobar to flac, but it loses the DTS encoding, can you tell me how should I proceed to convert the CD to flac (or other format), keeping the DTS encoding?
Thanks and ciao

I don't know but if it's getting decoded to playable audio, foobar must be decoding it.    Or something is decoding it when it's played.   Because undecoded DTS sounds like pure noise.  (As you know if you've ever played it in a regular CD player.)

As far as I understand, foobar2000 now decodes DTS out of the box by default, but there is a switch for it: https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,125116.msg1036257.html#msg1036257

Ripping to FLAC or WAVE does retain the "DTS" signalling because - like HDCD - it is only detected from the audio. So apart from FLAC saving some 176 kbit/s, it shouldn't matter what format you use - but have you done any ReplayGain or anything similar to them?
