A couple of spots though. On putting the disc in(after Queen) it showed on the Oppo as playing 5.1 but was outputting Stereo through my Denon. I checked all settings and they were correct. So I pressed the audio button and Voila it became 5.1. Is this a handshake issue or something else?
This may be as a result of your SACD priority setting.
Look in: Setup Menu > Playback Setup > SACD Priority and set this option to "Multi-Channel". This setting will default to playing Multi-Channel mixes on SACDs that contain both a stereo and a Multi-Channel mix on the SACD layer (pages 45-46 in the manual
Pressing the Audio button on the remote switches playback between the stereo mix and the Multi-Channel mix as explained here
in the BDP-83 FAQ (a must read BTW).
If this setting was already set to Multi-Channel, then there may be an issue that should be reported to Oppo.
