Blu-ray discs are well-known for their high-definition video quality, but they can also contain high-quality audio tracks in various formats such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. If you're an audiophile who wants to enjoy the purest form of high-fidelity (Hi-Fi) audio from your Blu-rays, then converting them to Hi-Fi audio files is a great option. In this article, we will explore how to rip audio from Blu-rays with DVDFab Blu-ray Ripper.

Introduction to Blu-ray Audio

Blu-ray Audio is an advanced audio format designed to deliver a high-quality listening experience to audio enthusiasts. It is an evolution of the traditional CD and DVD audio formats, offering improved audio resolution, clarity, and depth.

Introduced in 2006, Blu-ray Audio utilizes the same disc technology as Blu-ray movies, providing ample storage capacity for high-resolution audio files. Blu-ray Audio supports a wide range of audio formats, including lossless and high-resolution codecs such as PCM, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS-HD Master Audio. These codecs allow for the playback of uncompressed, studio-quality recordings, ensuring that listeners can hear the music as the artist intended.

To enjoy Blu-ray Audio, you need a compatible player capable of decoding the high-resolution audio codecs. Or you can extract audio from high-definition Blu-ray discs. DVDFab Blu-ray Ripper is a powerful Blu-ray audio extractor that not only ensures lossless output quality, but also has a customized built-in editor.

Step 4: Customize the Output Audio

Clicking the little wrench icon will open up the "Advanced Settings" menu where you can make certain changes to your file. Some of the options found here are static, such as the codec, bit rate or bit depth. These are tied to the profile you pick and can’t actually be modified. However, you can select a different sample rate (up to 192 kHz High-Definition Output), channels, and use the slider to adjust the volume.
