I recently borrowed a couple SACD's from my brother and connected three crappy RCA cables to the 975 to try out SACD before buying a good cable. I connected them to my Onkyo TSX989 via its DB-25 to RCA 6 Ch. Cable supplied with my receiver. I set the input on the receiver to Multichannel (the name of the DB-25 connection).
I could not hear the SACD's (tried 4 different ones both stero and multichannel), nor could I hear the SACD speaker set-up tones generated by the Sony 975.
What exactly do I have to select in the Audio menu to play SACD's? I tried everything I could think of but heard nothing. I even unhooked the HDMi and Coaxial cables to make sure that only the Analog 5.1 was connected.
Any ideas are appreciated.
I think I will bring it to the store and see if it works on one of their recievers if your suggestions do not help. It could be the input on my receiver, my DVD player or the cables I used (though I would think I would get sound in some of the speakers if it were the cables). Taking it into the store should help isolate which is the issue (if it is not simply my inability to properly set-up the player in the menu).
Thanks in advance for any ideas you have for me to try. I was really disappointed not to be able to get this to work.
