David's Take: Everything You Need To Know About THX - Part 1 of 2

The THX system is not a recording technology and it does not specify a sound recording format: all sound formats, whether digital (Dolby Digital, SDDS) or analog (Dolby Stereo, Ultra-Stereo), can be "shown in THX." THX is mainly a quality assurance system.
