How to PLAY dts-waves ?

Hey there,

I have an ASUS A7N8X-deluxe mobo, and logitech Z680 speakers.  The Z680s have DTS decoding built right in - when i'm playing a DVD with a DTS audio track, I simply tell the player to output straight to SPDIF, and my speakers correctly autodetect the DTS and play it wonderfully.

I now have a bunch of DTS-wave files on my comp. The closest I can get to playing them is running wav2dts on them and then playing in PowerDVD5, but then it sounds like the chipmunks in 5.1 - I surmise that PowerDVD5 is playing at 48khz, when the source is 44.1khz...

I've tried installing DTSSource.ax and DTSWAVSource.ax ... But neither seemed to do anything. I read somewhere that one has to install other filters also? Or something along this manner.  Thing is - I don't need to change the encodings of these files! I just want to output them straight to SPDIF.  How do I do this? I'd like to do it in winamp2 if possible, but i've also grabbed foobar2000 in case that helps.

thanks

try using a DirectShow Player.

after "wav2dts" or "DTS Parser", i use :
"ActiveMovie ActiveX Control" or "Windows Media Player 9"
and "DTSSource.ax" and "Cyberlink Audio Decoder" (from PowerDVD 5 Deluxe)

DTSWAVSource.ax never worked for me,
DTSSource.ax work fine.

Ok, but what do you play it with? You mention WMP9, I have tried WMP8 (refuse to install 9), and Zoom Player - ZP is DirectShow; both do the same thing, they just sit indefinitely at 00:00 of any .dts file i've made with wav2dts (and i've tried a few). I have DTSSource.ax installed, and Cyberlink Audio Decoder is there also.

i use ActiveMovie to play everything :
C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe c:\windows\system32\amovie.ocx,RunDll

sometimes, files converted with "wav2dts" do not work,
use "DTS Parser" with "Rebuild Stream" http://hypercube.is.dreaming.org
or
BeSplit.exe -core( -input xxx.wav -output yyy.dts -type dtswav -fix ) http://dspguru.notrace.dk/beta.htm
