DTS licenses multiple audio enhancement technologies to Window PC manufacturers so that consumers can enjoy high quality immersive audio experiences over headphones and with the built-in speakers. To help simplify the technology integration effort, DTS creates “reference” apps for users to change advanced DTS audio settings – which manufacturers are free to integrate as-is or to modify as they see fit.

The app offers an immersive visual experience, with the background image changing depending on the user-selected Content Mode.
Main Screen: Built-In Speakers
If audio is currently being routed through the built-in speakers, the user has a few more audio enhancement options, such as boosting the bass or engaging volume leveling. A graphic equalizer is also available for the built-in speakers.
Graphic Equalizer Screen
This app features a basic 5-band graphic equalizer where a user can enjoy different EQ settings for headphones and built-in speakers.
Stereo Preference Screen
For headphones, the user can choose one of several stereo virtualization options.

For headphones, the DTS Headphone:X audio engine can be configured with reverb and spatial values for multi-channel (2.1 and higher) content.
The About Screen features marketing copy and an outbound company website link.
