    Most blu-ray/UHD players should be able to decode the DTS and then send sound to the Theatre. Where we really need the Theatre for decoding is with DTS:X and the new DTS:X Pro formats.

    I think that B&O is making a mistake in listening to claims that only Dolby and Dolby Atmos are the only formats needed because DTS is hardly ever used in streaming (excepting the Kaleidescape system — which is a difference creature altogether and more downloading than streaming). For people with lower-end audio systems, streaming might be fine. However, with higher performing speakers that you get with B&O you can tell a HUGE, MASSIVE difference between streaming and physical disc (or Kaleidescape). In looking through my huge blu-ray/UHD collection, I was surprised to see how many titles really do use DTS.
