In reply to Rob, I have it connected by 6 phono leads and choose mutli channel on my amp. So are we saying that some tracks may only be two channel even though I thought the push for SACD was so that you get multi channel surround?
Charming, I have read both manuals and followed the instructions but they don't go into enough detail to explain when things dont exactly go to plan. Which is what i thought these forums were for to try and tap other peoples knowledge!!
Go into the setup section of your player. Somewhere there you will find something like 'Options' (can't remember exactly as I have sold mine). There will be a tag called SACD Playback or similar. Select that and it should say '2 Channel area' and 'multi-channel area' or something. Select multi channel.
Some SACD disks are 2 channel only as well so you need to make sure you have a multi channel one.
