Benefits of remastering music
Get more from your music collection. Import music tracks from computer files or CD. If they are in stereo, convert them to surround 5.1 for an immersive experience. And/or upsample them to high-definition up to 24bit/192kHz for enhanced clarity and details. Export to DVD, Blu-ray or files.
When your music is not already in high-definition or surround (e.g. it is of CD quality), you will benefit to remaster it (i.e. process and/or convert) :
To encode the audio signal in a way that is more easily reproducible by electronics equipment with less distorsion and closer to the original analog signal with a technique called upsampling.
To supplement the stereo reproduction with surround channels to restore the sound stage to something closer to reality with a technique called upmixing. The front stereo channels can be left unchanged.
The result is a superior listening experience having more definition, clarity and presence, that has been qualified as "more fluid, less harsh and an all round better sound".

If your interest is for stereo at 24bit/96kHz or 24bit/48kHz, then a standard DVD-Video disc is a sufficient media when played through a good quality player.
