Can someone explain to me in basic terms why when I play SACDs through analog Multi Channel inputs my AVR occasionally displays "overload", but not on Blurays or CDs?
I asked this question in a separate thread, when I didn't know what was causing the "overload", but would like to understand it a little more.
Oppo 93. Using 7.1 analog out. All decoding done in player. No Bass Management or speaker adjustments in player, all left default and/or fixed.
Denon 5803. MCh Ext-In. This is one of the few AVRs that can apply speaker trims and BM to MCh analog in, so it is doing it.
Never had a problem with any BD or CD, but my recent SACD purchases will cause the AVR to display overload.
What is happening here? Is SACD "louder" or a bigger signal?
AVR analog setup can change LFE input db (0, +5, +10, +15) as well as overall input signal (0 to -20). If I change this, would the BD and CDs be softer? Change by how much?
