    On SACD I have no subwoofer playing on SACDs. My subwoofer, a Velodyne CT80, is connected via the LFE (SUB PRE OUT) on the receiver. The SACD player is set to SUBWOOFER : YES - and I've tried all speakers on SMALL and LARGE. I still get no subwoofer output!

    I want to connect my sub to the amp via speaker outputs, and then my speakers to my subwoofer. I'll set the SACD player and my amplifer to SUBWOOFER : OFF, and hopefully get a full range signal through my speakers.

    Will it work as well?

    I think doing this you'll negate one of the main points of SACD which is to feed the sound to discrete speaker channels.

    Is there a test tone on your player and if so does the sub out work for that?

    Lack of SACD sub output is not an unusual topic, certainly with some hybrid DVD/SACD players. It's a common comment for the Pio 575 'caus the sub out setting defaults to off. It's also a comment made against the Samsung 745 which seems to have a fault on some machine where there' no sub output for SACD...PJ :)

    Do SACD player manuals not warn of the sub level being down 10db?! I'd check mine but I got my SACD player without box, manual or remote...
