Dolby TrueHD added to 100 e-onkyo albums

Dolby has declared that e-Onkyo music will be the first online music distribution service to use Dolby TrueHD 5.1-channel surround sound. The music service, a subsidiary of Japanese electronics maker Onkyo, will be letting users download 1000 tracks from 100 albums in the audio standard later this year, with two Onkyo receivers supporting the service.

The tracks will be 24-bit with a choice between 96kHz and 192kHz bitrates, DRM free, and aiming for smaller file sizes through the TrueHD codec. Recievers that will support the music tracks will be the Onkyo TX-NR818 and the TX-NR717.

e-Onkyo will be starting the Dolby TrueHD 5.1-channel service from May 30 in Japan, with the rest of the world receiving it in the third quarter this year. Albums start at 3000 yen ($38 USD) and singles from 400 yen ($5 USD).
