Newbie Question about DVD DTS
#1
So I've got the Mad Max 5.1 DTS track from the Australian DVD - it is 1510 kbps. In order to sync it up to the 4k version it needs a delay at the start, PAL speedup reversal and a bit cutting off the end. I've done this through eac3to but noticed when going from old.dts to new.dts, eac3to converts it to .wavs first then converts the .wavs to .dts. 

I know .dts is lossy - so the question is am I better going to .wavs first with eac3to, then to DTS HD? Is the process of taking a .dts file and converting it to .wavs then back to .dts encoding a lossy file to a lossy format a second time - and will that make a huge difference to quality?

Obviously from a space point of view .dts is better than .dtshd - but as this track is unique i'd like to preserve it as best as I can. 

Hope that makes sense!

Thanks all

Of course DTS (or AC3), as lossy format, would "lose" some quality when converted to any other format; still, I guess that DTS-wavs-DTSHD would be more or less the same of DTS-wavs-DTS; you have to decide the balance between quality and size.

Old school full bitrate DTS from LD or DVD is pretty much the same size as the legacy core track inside hdma.
