I bought an old 5-disc combo DVD/SACD player at a garage sale recently, hoping to explore the vaunted SACD 5.1 glory. It is a Sony DVP-NC80V. The player works great, but is not designed to output SACD over its digital outs. It does have discrete outputs for center, sub, left, right, and rears (5.1), but my receiver (Onkyo TX-SR608) doesn't feature these types of inputs.
I'm assuming that if I use the two-channel outs on the SACD player to get the signal to my receiver, it will have to be transcoded to two-channel analog. This would seem to defeat the whole reason for DSD in the first place.
Can you confirm or correct my thinking? If I'm right are there alternatives I'm overlooking (other than purchasing a more expensive SACD platform--I'm just in the experimentation stages just now).

Thanks in advance.
