    Thanks for the tip. Just seen this now. So I need to turn of DSD in the settings for my Sony multichannel receiver or for my Sony Playstation 4 Pro, which is what plays the disc? All other DVDs and blu-rays I have with 5.1 audio work, and this problem was a DVD authoring problem (a problem in production), so th eguy who did the authoring ended up sending me the digital file, which I now use to hear this album in 5.1. Still, I didn't know my AVR or the PS4 Pro had a setting to turn off DSD. I know they can handle 24/192 when I stream it from my MacBook Pro to the PS4 Pro to the speakers via the Sony AVR.

    What Hi-Fi is among the worst review sites IMO. So many times I've seen errors in their reviews. Total garbage IMO. Panasonic players never had SACD playback as far as I recall. I wish Panasonic did put out a universal player as they make great Blu-ray players.

    What’s typical today is choice to output DSD or PCM from player to receiver. One reason to output PCM is it permits the receiver to manage multi-channel bass.

    I'm using a Sony blu-ray player along with my Sony receiver (same as yours I think) the option is there on the on the Blu-ray player to turn off DSD , you could try A. F.D on your remote, not too sure how to turn off DSD on the receiver. It's probably on your Blu-ray player, try Audio settings on your DVD or Blu-ray player, and the DSD output mode , hope this helps, I'm no expert by the way

    Audio format direct , might be on your remote, it's for switching between stereo , multi stereo, and A.F.D auto. I think you need it for 5.1 in A.F.D auto

    OK, thank you. On mine, it's called Pure Direct. Anyway, this has all been discussed in the thread!
