I have some Wav music file that seems to have DTS 5.1 signal inside. I want to burn these files to CDA, so to create a regular Audio CD. How do you do it?

have you tried burning an audio CD with the files already?

here is a tutorial on how to make an audio cd,

If you want to make the 5.1 into stereo, I guess just load up the wave file into an audio editing program and output it in 2 channel stereo.

If you want, put one file somewhere and PM a link to download it so I can see what I can do with the file.

You could do this just using Windows Media Player.

Open Windows Media Player.
Click the "Burn" tab at the top right.
Drag audio files into the "Burn list" underneath the "Burn" tab.
Click the "Start burn" button right above the "Burn list", below the "Play" tab.

Windows Media Player should take care of any necessary file conversion automatically and the result should be a normal Audio CD.

when I play the wav file using windows media player, all I get is static sound. So there is no sense burning it when it can't even play it

just load up audacity program, play the file, same thing, all I get is static sound.

now, there is nothing wrong w/ the wav files. When I use Nero to burn it, it can play just fine on a 5.1 system, just NOT on a 2 channel stereo sys.

You can't download that file. As for free download, it takes 2 hr. at 50 to 80 kps. Is there a place for me to upload a WAV file? As I just try this website, it says the upload file is too large. The file is only 33 MB.

However, if you have time to drag this link in your background, the above is the file I download last night from a chinese file web server. You have to click the button at the far top left (free download) just below the orange color printed chinese words

I have also just upload the wav file to Yourlisten.com, again when you play it, all we have is static noise

Your 5.1 multi-channel WAV file is not compatible with the two-channel Red Book audio format of CDs. To burn to a CD so that CD players can play them you need to down mix the audio to two channels so that it complies with the standard (as has already been pointed out to you, which you appear to have ignored).

I can try Windows Media Player or Audacity, which one of them can do a seamless job on down mix the audio to 2 chnl.?

as it stands right now, it's showing the disc is a 6.1 DTS CD. However, I do have this box (an older verison):

https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=10251

apparently, it doesn't seems to be able to convert the signal properly

in the end, I solve the problem in a totally different way, as I have this problem for a few yr. Turns out the Oppo 103 that I have, has 2 HDMI out. All I did is to switch the output to HDMI 2, in which it output HDMI audio ONLY, and from there, use the Monoprice 5.1 to Digital Co-ax,and that's all it takes to solve it
