With a stereo input, all resulting files are burnable :
- the pure dca file is recognised as a dts stream by the receiver and instead of silence (as with the multiple track input), it plays a choppy version of the music, very quietly, mixed with a white noise …
- the first wav-pack file plays noise, not detected as dts
- the repacked file is played as a classic stereo track, with no dca detection
