    Sorry mate, you need an amp.

    If you want to make use of SACD the amp will need 5.1 inputs as well as Optical or Coax digital inputs.

    I had the FS2/AV set up with the Sony DB940 amp, and it worked well. Don't go mad on the spend of the amplifier, the sub sat speaker setup won't make the best of it. An amp for around £300-£400 will be more than up to the job.

    All the best

    You need an AV amp to replay DVDs but if you wish to replay SACD you will have to ensure that the amp has a six channel input as the SACD decoder is within the DVD player and it outputs decoded SACD directly to the amp.
