DTS Virtual:X

DTS Virtual:X provides a three-dimensional sound representation within a 2.1 or 5.1 speaker setup without the need for additional treble or effect speakers in the back. For this purpose, it uses complex signal processing to create a surround sound simulation out of any speaker configuration.

Simulated surround sound experience

First launched in 2017 by audio expert Digital Theater Systems, this feature is available on soundbars, home theater systems and other audio devices since then.

In contrast to the native DTS:X format, the sound output in DTS Virtual:X is realized via an analysis process that takes the acoustic properties of the room into account. On this basis, virtual speakers are created that reproduce an artificially generated 3D sound. The so-called virtualizer makes us believe that certain sound elements within the sound mix are placed at different positions, for example, behind or above us.Β 

Advantage of this system: Expensive hardware extensions, such as an AV receiver and additional places for speakers can be omitted. Disadvantages: Compared to a physical output, you have to accept a loss of quality in terms of precision and richness in detail.

In addition, the room acoustics play an essential role. This makes the quality of the sound result also dependent on the spatial conditions and can therefore vary according to the location.
