once the fix is in place, if your player can convert multichannel SACD to 5.1 LPCM channels, you will be able to send multichannel SACD over HDMI.
what you will not be able to do, however, is send a native SACD DSD bitstream over HDMI to the NAD T775/T785/T175. That feature is not scheduled for inclusion (to my knowledge) for the foreseeable future, although with modular construction one cannot wholly rule it out.
Once I have the fix, I will let you know how everything works. I don't expect it immediately, though, as it sounds like NAD is still figuring out the best way to handle it.
