+dcaenc is a Free Software (LGPL-licensed) encoder for the DTS Coherent
+Acoustics audio format.
+* It is useful if you want to create a DTS CD or a DTS soundtrack for a
+ DVD from a 6-channel PCM wav file using Linux.
+* Another use case is related to real-time encoding of multichannel
+ PCM audio output from arbitrary linux applications for transmission
+ over SPDIF.
+! Warning !
+The DTS technology is heavily patented.
+Do not download and do not use this software if you live in a country
+(such as the USA) that enforces software patents unless you have a
+patent license from [DTS, Inc.]( (and even
+then, you should check with DTS regarding the legality of using
+non-DTS software to produce your results).
