    I have a very specific problem with a particuar CD and my Pioneer 563A.

    The CD is Sketches of Spain and it is a SACD Disk. When it loads in the DVD Player it shows SACD on the front panel. But when I play the CD I can only get 2 Channel audio. If I look at the settings in the DVD settings it shows that it is playing in 2 Channel and there is no option to switch it to multi.


    Without altering any settings and switching to another CD(Diana Krall for example) it plays in 5.1.

    I am using a Yamaha 1400 Receiver and have both Multichannel and digital coaxial connections to my receiver.

    Any help getting figuring out how to get multi-channel audio from this CD would be very helpful.

    Thanks!

    The disc is most likely 2ch only, as not all SACDs are multichannel. I believe the Diana Krall SAs are all multichannel. Check the CD case, it will say.
