The sound bars have left center right a wireless sub and the rear speakers. Just wondering if I would be able to benefit from surround music formats with these setups.
SACD will only output over HDMI, and if you're using ARC your TV might only support 2.0 PCM. Your soundbar(s) may not support SACD - especially in 5.1- in which case you may be able to convert to 5.1 PCM in the player (But not in the BDP-S6700 if I recall correctly.). Blu-ray audio surround, on the other hand, should work (to a greater or lesser extent) with both of your rigs.
