Yep, with 'speakers' selected as the default it still doesn't work. The exculsive options didn't seem to help either. Perhaps the Z5500 doesn't like DTS?

Double post!
I've been doing some reading and it appears to me that the prelude is incapable of doing DTS passthrough. It only seems to be able to up-scale normal streams (AC3, MP3, etc) into DTS which seems to work just fine. IE it has a DTS encoder.
That said, can anyone recommend a card/setup that will be able to bitstream DTS-HD? I'm doing a massive upgrade to my entertainment system and I want to make sure my HTPC is up to snuff.
Thanks!

Did you try with enabling the DTS encoder through the forte? There is the option specifically for having the audio processed through DTS/DD. The Z5500s say it has support for DTS/DTS 96/24 encoders. You don't need to have it enabled as pass through in order for it to work properly. I have DTS being encoded on my forte and passes it to my amp, which reads the signal as DTS and properly plays it back through its speakers.

DTS-HD can only be played through HDMI. You will need a soundcard that specifically has a HDMI by my understanding. Coaxiel/SPDIF does not support enough bandwidth to support that high of audio.

It's not a forte, its a prelude.

Windows Media Classic Home Cinema Edition + AC3 Decoder should be able to send DTS through optical just fine.

What you need is software to decode HD Sound to analog and send it through the minijack outputs. You don't have speakers that can decode HD sound so what's the point of bitstreaming?

The Z5500 are supposedly capable or so say the specs, the problem is the x-fi prelude doesn't let me bit stream, it only offers the ability to upscale formats into DTS/DD. Now I'm looking for a setup that will let me bitstream up to DTS-HD.

Oh sorry, I thought you were talking about the forte all this time. Regardless, I'm pretty sure it works the same way.

You won't be able to decode DTS HD through a digital coaxial / SPDIF cable if you are planning to use your Z5500s. There is not enough bandwidth. You will need a soundcard that has an HDMI out with support for DTS HD MA, or upgrade to an AMD graphics card. Both that will not connect to your Z5500s. Your Z5500s don't support DTS-HD...unless 96/24 is another name for DTS-HD? DTS HD requires a RCA connector for each channel (for a 5.1 set up, 6 cables) or HDMI.

Is there a version of the Z-5500s with HDMI input? Do you own a Z-5500 with HDMI input? You can't DTS-HD bitstreaming is locked to the HDMI format.

If you toss in a blu ray disc and you're connected to your speakers via optical, blu ray movies will lock out the HD audio format.

So, do you own Z-5500s with HDMI?

Actually thats not true, Auzentech X-Fi HDMI and Xonar HDAV1.3(H6 board) will output DTS-HD and DTS-MA thru Full thru analog without no downsampleing aslong you use powerdvd for Auzentech X-Fi HDMI and TMT3 for Asus Xonar HDAV1.3(H6dauther board).

I used to own a Xonar HDAV1.3 my self and I know for a fact it will do Full analog blu ray audio without being downsample just like Auzentech card. Both are the only two cards that alloud Full blu ray audio thru analog. As I mention aslong you use the players which support each card Function for it.

For muiti speaker you will need the H6 board which can be got sepereted unless you find the deluxe ver, while Auzentech X-FI HDMI comes with a analog I/O wiht muiti channel speaker outputs.
