Oppo 103/Denon 6200 Issue Playing DSOTM & WYWH Quad Mixes
With my Oppo 103 and my Denon 6200, both with the latest firmware, I discovered an issue when playing back the 24/96 quad 2/2/.0 (aka 4.0) mix of either "Dark Side of the Moon" Blu-ray or "Wish You Were Here" Blu-ray from their respective Immersion Box Sets.
My system configuration is 5.1.4.
I can only get the quad mix to play correctly from HDMI 1 Out of the 103. With HDMI 2 Out, I only get audio from the FL & FR speakers but no sound from the SL & SR. However, the 6200 shows the FL, FR, SL, SR as all active! The 24/96 5.1 and 2.0 audio mixes play as expected from HDMI 2 Out.
With the 103, I've tried Dual Display and Split A/V (with HDMI 1 Out going to my TV and HDMI 2 Out going to the 6200). I've got all Monoprice Certified Premium High Speed cables. I've tried swapping HDMI 1 and 2 Outs on the 103, swapping HDMI cables, and using different HDMI inputs on my 6200. I've reset the 103 to factory defaults. I've power cycled the 103 and the 6200. No matter what I try, HDMI 2 Out of the 103 will not send audio to the side speakers when playing the quad mix. HDMI 1 Out works fine for all audio mixes (of course with the 103 is set up for Dual Display).
I called Oppo and they have had no reports about this issue. Chris in Tech Support at Oppo logged the issue but it could take some time before they get around to replicating the issue. I realize they are way past the 103.
For Oppo 103/Denon 6200 owners with the DSOTM & WYWH Blu-ray discs, if it's not much trouble, could you try replicating the issue with your 103? I would like to confirm whether this issue is a global issue or specific to my unit. If it's specific to my unit, then I'll take it to Oppo for repairs. I live within easy driving distance to their Menlo Park office.
BTW, the quad sound mixes of DSOTM and WYWH are superb! I prefer the quad mixes to the 5.1 mixes although the 5.1 mixes sound very good as well.
