There is a plethora of different audio standards, and not all players  
support all of them, but the best are "HD" (>48k 16bit) PCM formats  
(or PCM surround) and the worst are the same as DVD-V. Some features  
that I've seen have audio bandwidths over 3Mbps (check out the last  
Pirates of the Caribbean BD, the sound is superb).
