    I was looking at the april home cinema choice and in the review for denon dvd A11 it said SACD is not supported because denon has not yet secured agreement from the SACD licence holders.
    Is this true that denons don't play SACDs?

    I have a Denon 2900, and that most definitely DOES play SACDs! :lesson:

    I wonder why they've put that, then? :confused:

    Hi mate

    I think you`ve read it wrong, What it says is that the Denon Link digital connection doesn`t support SACD :)

    It still plays SACD through the normal analogue 6 chanel output.

    Cheers

    I think it will also happily play SACD throught the iLink. It's just the Denon link but it looks like Sony may allow them to use it.

    Looks like a beast of a player.

    actualy the i-link is broken, SACD is confirmed by sony for i-link but not for d-link.

    A firmware update for the A11 is due in the next 2-4 weeks to fix the i-link to work with other make amps. at present i-link wont pass any sound whatsoever.


    Also D-link is going to be upgraded as well to version 3 (this will allow SACD to pass) rumour has it that it will be just a firmware update for the A11, but not sure about denon amps.
