Bravia Core Service - DTS Sound

Userlevel 2

Sony is offering a new subscription-based streaming service “Bravia Core” with the purchase of its new 2021 Sony XL tvs providing access to its titles in up to 4k HDR quality.  I like the fact the emphasis is on getting the best video quality possible (“streaming at up to 80 Mbps, delivering lossless 4K UHD”).  And for a limited time (promotion ends February 23, 2022), it will be free when you purchase one of the eligible tvs.

Here’s the wrinkle: It features an IMAX®️ Enhanced collection, which will be optimized for BRAVIA XR, and will deliver the remastered IMAX®️ picture and immersive sound in DTS.

DTS is also noted as the sound format used for the service in the following article:

Sigh.  It will never end, will it? 😂

This is the issue in experiencing. So sad Sonos don't support DTS . I just got my new Sony OLED 2021 last week. And tested the bravia core. No sound at all

It has been widely known for a very long time that Sonos doesn’t support DTS and doesn’t seem to have plans to support DTS anytime in the near future. Knowing this, why are you using a Sonos sound bar if you want DTS audio?

There's plenty of better soundbars out there.

I've worked around it with my Playbar for years but next time round it won't be a Sonos under the TV..
