hey there, I've recently acquired a new Marantz 7701 pre pro and I'm having trouble getting sacds to play both from my old sony multi-disk cd dvd sacd palyer as well as a newer and presumably much better Music Hall cd/sacd player. CDs and dvds will play from the Sony, but not sacds (they did with my old NAD receiver, so its not the sony). With the Music Hall, neither works. There's no HDMI output on either, so I've tried using both digital coax and optical with the Sony to no avail,,, only the component and analog audio connection works. The Music Hall does not work with either digital coax or analog connection. With regular CDs and analog connections, the Music Hall works. I'm sure I've got the inputs assigned correctly in the Marantz. Could it be that the Marantz will only read SACD through HDMI? Will a Digital coax to hdmi cable work? Any other ideas?.
