<p>A few things are still lacking there but they should mainly affect low-bitrate DTS streams which don't seem that common anyway (some of the missing things are: Joint channels coding, Dynamic range, etc... - see the TODO file).</p>

<p>There might also be quality issues, but for some early code it does seem pretty decent to me.</p>

<p>None of the extensions (extra channels, 96/192kHz sample rates) have been implemented (and unfortunately the public standard provides only minimal information on them).</p>
