Please add support for DTS for the Sonos Playbar.
A hifi homecinema soundbar without dts support seems not up to date for me. Are there any plans to add dts support?

I just ordered a Sonos Playbar and Sub to pair with recently purchased play1s. Unfortunately I didn't do my research before ordering and didn't realize thet the soundbar would not support DTS. Hopefully, you will announce that support for DTS is forthcoming in the next couple of weeks so I can avoid the hassle of returning these items.
I don't pretend to know whether it is in the companies best interest to add support for DTS, but If it isn't, I would appreciate knowing your decision so we can find alternatives for our home theater sound system and concentrate on optimizing our Sonos system for it's intended designed purposes.
Thanks for your consideration.
If this is a "licensing thing" then why not allow people to buy the license separately. This is how Raspberry Pi support legacy MPEG2 codecs on their devices. I realise it will rankle with some people that they have to buy something else to get DTS, however for those people who genuinely won't buy this product until it has DTS it will provide another option.
Something bad this way comes, and it's probably called Playbar 2.

With all the recent comments on this forum and Facebook, it seems very clear to me that regardless of the official comment that SONOS hears the request, they don't give a damn about customer satisfaction and are only concerned with selling.
I am amazed at the lack of connection between their marketing department and listening to customers.
The disconnect between the marketing messages and reality is astounding
Sonos, please add DTS support to the Playbar, it's a great product with a terrible, unavoidable defect.
To the Sonos gurus, most user's are not using the TV pass through function via the optical output. There are well known optical switches out there which are being used to feed sound direct from the component to the Playbar. One of these components is a DVD player and if the DVD is encoded for DTS only, then no sound is heard. Please forget the TV DTS pass through capability issue and realise that there are other options for feeding the sound from a device to the Playbar. Count my vote for DTS please.
Come on Sonos let us hear your voice!
