    Is the Panasonic RV31 actually capable of passing a 24bit/96kHz signal? I tried the Se7en disc 2 test and I go no sound from my receiver as soon as I selected the 96kHz track. At first I thought it was my receiver but I removed my optical connection and when I was playing the normal 48kHz tracks, I see the red light from the toslink cable but when I select the 96kHz track. There's no light from the cable at all. What's up with this? Is this a Pannt RV31 problem or all Panny's. I'm worried because my RP91N is on its way but I'm worried that it will have the same problems.

    Donovan,
    Your question is related to one I had posted
    about a week ago. I think I remember reading some specs
    on the RV31 which stated it could pass a 96/24 if the disc
    was not "copy protected" - apparently some flag is set.
    I thought, however, that it would downsample from 96 to 48kHz if the disc was protected. Check the Crutchfield website - there is far more information there than on Panasonic's.

    I haven't tried the se7en disc on my A320 but it passed the signal no problem when I tried a DAD from Chesky. There's a setting in the players setup menu about downconverting...say no and it should work
