I have the oppo bdp-105 connected to the yamaha cx-a5000 via hdmi 1 (AV1), the yamaha cx-a5000 connected to a Mcintosh mc-402 amp via balanced xlr cables. My question; can I listen to music CDs via bitstream instead of PCM? When I set the oppo to output hdmi audio "bitstream", the yamaha still reads PCM on the display. Also, SACD DSD 2 channel audio is not heard. Is there anything that can be set on either unit to pass bitstream?
Thank you in advance.
Can you say something on the difference between the Oppo 105 analog out and the Yamam CX5000 connected by HDMI with the Oppo? I M interested in movie sound only!
