Can't burn 96kHz / 24-bit / 6 channel DVD audio using WaveLab 6?


Oct 13, 2012
Hi guys, I'm getting an error when trying to burn 96kHz / 24 bit / 6 channel audio using Wavelab 6:

(sample rate [96,000]) x (# of channels [6]) x (# of bytes per sample [3]) ---- exceeds 1,260,000. This is not supported by DVD Audio specification.'

I was under the impression that DVD Audio DID SUPPORT 96kHz / 24 bit audio. According to the DVD-Audio Wikipedia article ( the corresponding box between 5.1 and 96kHz is green. Furthermore, under the Sampling Rate Wikipedia article ( DVD-Audio is specifically mentioned under 96,000 Hz.

I'm confused. What is going on? I don't want to downgrade the audio to 48kHz. Thank you.
If the 6th channel you want to burn is a full range channel and not a subwoofer channel it may exceed the data that the standard allows for the .1 channel. It may also be that the total amount of data will not fit on a single layer DVD so try a dual layer or a Bluray.
