Can anyone tell me what the "No Down-Mix" message [that appears on the unit's display] refers to after pressing play on certain DVD-A and SACD disks? Thanks.

Certain discs tell the players to not allow down-mixing the 6ch track to a 2ch track. They do this because the disc has a 2ch track on it. The 2ch track on the disc is specifically mixed for a 2-speaker system, whereas a down-mixed 6ch track doesn’t sound right through just two speakers.
