Distorted Music On Dvd Music Disc

Question

I downloaded some FLAC tracks from HDtracks.com.

I burned them to a music DVD and when they played back on the stereo using my new Sony Blu-Ray player, the music was distorted. It sounded like clipping, worse on the peaks or loud parts of the music, quieter on the quiet parts.

 

I then converted the same tracks to AIFF and burned a regular music CD with iTunes. These played fine and the tracks played fine over the computer so I know there wasn't a problem with the files. Seems like a problem with Toast 10.

 

Any ideas?

I suggest doing some testing. Use a rewritable DVD if you don't want throw out discs.

 

Add some of the FLAC tracks and add some MP3 and AAC and AIFF to the Music DVD setting. Now go to the custom encoder settings window and try different audio settings. Find out if the result is different using PCM audio and then try a test using one of the higher bit rates for Dolby Digital audio.

 

Let us know if the problem is with everything or just with a specific file type of encoding option.

Where is this "custom encoder window"?

I looked all over Toast and don't see it.
