Today morning, I discovered Windows Sonic spatial sound option along with DTS X Ultra option.
When I looked on the Internet I got two thing:DTS Headphone X and DTS X Ultra. I could figure out what is their
difference?

I guess Ultra is name of app, and the other two are the names of individual technologies that are supported by app

My speakers have DTS, wonder if its same as X or an older version? guess now I have questions :)

I found a similar thing too. My speaker is from the early 2000 but it supports DTS(as reported by Windows) . I have also read somewhere that it will not be limited to 5.1 and 7.1 devices, all devices will support it. Therefore I think your speaker is using DTS X as it is not a headphone. Even if it is not compatible with DTS, the Unbound Surround app will bring in the compatibility
