DTS announced the availability of the first standard OEM car audio system to feature DTS 5.1-channel digital surround in the United States: the 2004 Acura TL. The 2004 Acura TL’s ELS Premium eight-speaker surround sound system with DVD-Audio, DTS and CD six-disc changer, AM/FM tuner and Dolby cassette was designed with multiple Grammy-winning recording engineer and producer Elliot Scheiner. Producing six channels of sound, the system plays DTS 5.1 music discs, as well as DVD-Audio titles.

The first OEM-standard vehicle to carry a DTS-capable system was the Toyota Brevis, available in Japan, and DTS-capable systems are currently available as an optional feature in the Lexus RX330 and Lexus GX430. Additionally, most major after-market car audio manufacturers currently produce systems featuring DTS decoders, including Alpine, Clarion, Eclipse, JVC, Kenwood, Panasonic, Pioneer, Sanyo and Sony.

"The widespread adoption of home-theater systems has driven increased popularity in surround music in general—and DTS Surround Sound specifically—which is quickly leading to consumers demanding the same experience in the car," said Jon Kirchner, president and CEO of DTS. Acura's decision to include DTS as a standard feature in the 2004 Acura TL shows how they recognize and value the future of in-car entertainment."
