I posted this a few days ago in another thread. I thought I would repost it here, since this is where problems like mine have shown up.
This CD (Sting, Sacred Love) contains SACD Surround, SACD Stereo, and CD versions on one disc. The SACD Stereo and CD versions always play fine. In other words, it only skips in the "Multi" mode. (The SACD Surround version of this disc contains an extended version of track 5 with 2 extra minutes which is awsome.)
Has anyone else that has experienced skipping tried playing in other modes if possible? Are the discs that skip all "hybrid" SACDs or DVD-A's? I wonder if this could have something to do with the "Multi" mode of this player.
Anyway, here is my original post:
I am on my second 5900. The first one had a problem with the DVI port.
On my first 5900, it played all SACDs with exceptional sound. Except for Stings, Sacred Love.
This SACD played fine for about 20 plays, and then started skipping at about half way through. Playing as a CD it worked fine. I returned it for a new copy and SACD played fine.
I received my new 5900, again, after about 20 plays of Sacred Love, it started skipping about half way through again.
This problem only occurs on the SACD version of the CD. The I have many other SACDs that all play fine.
Has anyone else had SACDs skipping on them? Is this just some kind of weird coincidence? Could it be that after X amount of hybrid CD plays, the SACD section wears out?
