I am a fan of SACD & regret it's demise. I have been using a SCD-XA777ES since 2001 in my high-end, 2-channel system as my primary source and have been very happy. I've noticed that many of my newer SACD's offer a multi-channel option. I regularly read The Absolute Sound and have heard much praise for this format. I wanted to try it so I bought a long length of fiber optic cable to connect the digital output of the SCD-777ES to the receiver in my home theater system.


I completed the project this morning only to find that the SCD-777ES digital output does not work for SACD's. Are you kidding me?


I know that this is old news to most of you, but I thought I would ask the experts if there is any way of connecting the digital output of my SCD-777ES to my home theater system to play multi-channel SACD's through its digital output? I know that this can be done through the analog 5.1 channel outputs, but it is not a practical solution. I already have the fiber optic cable connected. Thanks for any suggestions.

Have we got good news for you!


Run right out and buy a Pioneer DV-48AV for $99 delivered. Then buy a $5 HDMI cable. Plug said HDMI cable from the Pio 48 to your AVR (DSD-capable, of course) and you have multi-channel SACD to your hearts content. If you wish, you can get one of the universal Blu-Ray players in place of the Pio 48 to feed both 1080p video and SACD DSD via HDMI to your display and listening devices. Good luck!
