I just found a link to another Forum where a user posted that it does play stereo, and multichannel SACDs even though it isn't listed...the user said that is why he bought it.

Does it do multichannel SACD? When I looked into this series a few months back I thought only the top model did. That was a differentiator between the top two. Don't remember now.

Yes, the options allow you to choose between stereo and multichannel SACD.

A little more info...
hi angeldust1
do this:
Video Settings:
Output Video Resolution 720p or higher ,before its only Stereo.
Audio Settings:
DSD on (if your AV encode DSD) otherwise PCM
Music Settings:
CD-layer/SACD-layer
DSD Stereo or multi

download the Firmware from sony and update the Player!
after that you get Music Options.
with the Firmware update it Plays DSD-discs, made with korg audiogate,in Stereo only.but there is another option: take any pcm/ flac/wave/diff/dsf/Stereo/Multi files and burn it as data-DVD.
Hey, that is really cool info on the firmware upgrade. I might just do that myself.

Do you guys know if there's firmware upgrade for PS3? I have a 60gb unit, that supposedly can read sacd, but the logo is not on the side of the machine. Can't remember exactly how long I've had it. Thanks blainstuds, one more thing for me to chase after! Lol

Re: SA-CD?

Yep
If you have done your upgrades it will be fine, maybe even if you have not.
The early PS3 does play SACD but only via HDMI as the signal must remain coded until it hits the decoder chip in your receiver or processor. It plays them good.

Good Listening

There is a hacked firmware for the PS3 to allow you to rip the SACDs to your HDD, but you have to have Firmware version. Here is the info... https://newtoolbox.files.wordpress.c...rimer-v4-0.pdf

Re: SA-CD?

Thanks everyone. Looks like I may have started something. I got the info on the Sony Blu-ray players from the product description on the Canadian Best Buy website.

Jack I found the Sony CDP-CE500 on Amazon.ca and Amazon .com but I did not see where this unit plays SA-CD.

Re: SA-CD?

The Floyd SACD played just fine on the 6200. It appears that the Sony reads and streams m-c DSD audio to the AVR, which then decodes and plays it. I couldn't find a setting in the Sony's menu to allow it to decode the audio and stream LPCM to the AVR.

Here are some (poor-quality cellphone) pics.

It is listed as a SACD player on Sonys website... https://esupport.sony.com/US/p/model...ls#/manualsTab

If you look at the directory tree it shows SACD players and then the selected page (which is your player). I havent found it in the manual though.
