For some reason I am unable to access the CD layer on a Hybrid SACD disc. Pressing the AUDIO button on the remote switches between SACD DSD 5.1 and SACD DSD Stereo. Setting the SACD Priority to CD Mode results in SACD DSD Stereo. What am I missing?
My interest in playing the CD layer of this particular disc is that it is HDCD encoded, and I'd like to compare that to the DSD. I've tried another Hybrid SACD, on which the CD layer is not HDCD encoded, and I am able to play the CD layer on it.
Try power cycling the player after setting SACD Priority to CD mode. If that works, then also try ejecting the disc before changing to CD mode -- i.e., without power cycling afterwards.
