I burned all my 24bit 88-96khz music files to dvd's and now I can listen to them with my regular $80 Sony dvd player instead of just on my computer setup or also without a dvd-audio player.

Very happy they sound great!

I did the same a few years back with some of my analog studio masters. I recorded and mastered in 24/192, but I authored the disc in DVD Audio using Disc Welder. What format did you use and does your DVD player natively play those 24/96 files?

Source material was some Albums I downloaded from hdtracks.com and I used cdburnerxp to make a data disc.
Also my dvd player does have a 24/96 option for audio.

Yeah man I'm having a great time listening to these discs.
I just burned a few of my favorite albums like,

BB King and Eric Clapton-Riding with the king 24/88
Albert King with Stevie ray Vaugh-Sessions 24/96
Diana Krall-Quiet nights 24/96
Ana Caram-Rio after dark 24/96

I have more to do but eventually I'll get all of my hi-res files on dvd.

Can you give me a step-by-step, how to on this matter. I would like to do what you're doing but from your outline, I still don't get it, thanks. I have a DELL Inspiron 14 running Windows 7, BTW.  My 24/96 files are FLAC files, and, just burning those to  a DVD-R disc does not get the job done. My Panasonic BD-80 will not read it.

I see...Sorry to hear that.It's extremely easy to do though.I just burn a data disc with the 24/96 files onto a blank dvd using CDburnerXP on windows 7 64bit but I'm sure any software or Operating system will do.When playing back the discs it takes my Sony DVP-NS710H about 30 seconds to read the disc and then it just plays.It takes much longer to read than regular dvd's or cd's.I just have the audio options set for PCM playback for dvd's not Dobly Digital!Also selected in this part of audio options is 24/96 rather than 16/48.

Perhaps I'm lucky?I didn't know other players could not do this.

Woops almost forgot!
You have to convert the flac files to Wav files then burn them!No dvd players will play flac files as far as I know.
I use foobar 2000 to do this.Be sure to set the conversion to 24 bit and resample rate to 96khz or it might default to "auto"/44khz.
Drag the files into the foobar 2000 program window and right click.Choose convert and you will see the options for the conversion type you need.Choose wav and select 24bit.then on dsp you should eneable resampler and select 96khz.Choose your output path ie "desktop" and your ready to burn the new 24/96 Wav files to a dvd data disc.

No luck. The Panasonic BD-80 says incompatible disc. I was able to covert to a 24/96 wav file; and,  interestingly, I was able to  get this file into my iTunes library, one song, 150mb @ 4608kpbs. I was also able to burn a DVD. Before burning I was prompted that the file would only read from a computer and would take up to an hour to burn.

This can only work for stereo material however, right?  Multi-channel on DVD-V is only available through DD and DTS.  DVD-A uses MLP (essentially the same format at TrueHD) which allows for multi channels as well as the losless compression required to fit the required data on a DVD.
