Hello,
My question is, I see the logo DVD music support on the stereo system. So what exactly does that support, because I tried to burn MP3's on a DVD to see if it's able to play, but no luck. So now I'm wondering what exactly do I need to do?

I did a search and a few threads debate about burning DVD-A, and other guys say just to use any burning software.....has anyone successfully got DVD music to play in their 2nd gen?

DVD AUDIO* https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD-Audio
DVD Audio refers to the ability of the Sound System to reproduce the format
DVD-A = HD Music.

What you are doing is a simple MP3 DVD storage which is not what DVD Audio is.
DVD-A is its own format (Like mp3) usually sampled at around 96*kHz/24-bit and can be encoded in either stereo or full 5.1 Surround sound.. So burning your own MP3s wont make them DVD-A as DVD-A is a High Definition format ala FLAC, Apple Lossless, etc.

The process to encode a DVD-A disc in your home is quite convoluted and time consuming but if you are willing to learn here is a guide: Ampliozone: Playing and Ripping DVD-Audio With Your PC

Unless you have access to your music in HD Format you wont be making any DVD-A discs.


You can also buy them online in physical form but they are expensive as they are usually encoded in 5.1 Surround:

Thanks skirmich - after reading through those instructions, it seems out of date compared to wireless streaming over BT. So I'll stick with bt streaming, makes life easier.

Well Audio quality is by far superior on DVD-A than BT Streaming but I would also take the comfort and utility of wireless streaming.

You can also use physical iPod/iPhone/Android connection to playback HD Content on the MDX.

You said you can use a android connection and play HD content. Whenever I plug in my wire to the usb using Samsung S6 edge, it says unsupported.
