    Hi all,

    This is my first post so please bear with me ;)

    I have recently bought a Denon 2900 and this attached to a Denon 3803 using 3 pais of phone leads.

    Everything seems to work very well, DVD Video, DVD Audio and CD. The problem I have is with my only SACD (Meatloaf Bat Out of Hell) It only seems to play in stereo.

    I am sure I have set up the DVD player correctly and know the Amp is set up as using DVD Audio, I get the full surround sound throgh my speakers (5.1 setup)

    Any ideas?

    Hi

    Is the disc definitely 5.1 encoded? Some SACDs (eg some Peter Gabriel and some of the Bob Dylan SACDs) are only encoded in stereo.

    Might be worth checking the packaging - should still sound better than the normal CD though!

    Cheers

    I believe Bat out of hell is a single layer stereo only disc.

    My Bat Out Of Hell SACD defaults to STEREO, I have to cycle through player audio modes to play MULTI-CHANNEL .

    Hmm, I have just dug out the SACD and there are three logos as such on the back, the SACD, A DSD (Direct Stream Digital) and a Stereo one

    does this mean it is a stero source only?

    I will look through the menu and get back also

    Look on the back cover and inside rear page of internal booklet, you should see details of 5.1 mentioned. :)

    Well don't own it myself but

    I've seen it quoted on one site as stereo only & another as multi channel ....go figure :confused:

    With gringottsdirect getting multi channel looks like you will be OK :smashin:

    I do not see any mention of 5.1 seems like I got the stereo version only :mad:

    I bought it from Amazon :blush: after reading a review that said the multi channel version was fantastic, obviously I presumed that the amazon SACD version was multi channel.

    Think I will have to send a nasty email to amazon :devil:

    Thx for the help guys

    On my pioneer universal player the default mode of SACD is stereo and I have not found a way to change the mode while a SACD is playing, so I changed the default to multi-channel.

    This might work for you. I believe that Bat Out of Hell is a multi-channel SACD.

    I have set up the 2900 to play SACD as "Multi" but the Bat out of Hell SACD only plays in stereo. I am sure it must be a stereo version.

    Can someone confirm that they have a stereo version only of this SACD.

    Thx
