My DS is at the 240 hour point and I have been enjoying the evolution of the break-in period. It is hooked up in such a way as I can readily compare between the DS, my Krell Foundation pre-pro, and my source player analog out simply by choosing the appropriate input on the pre-amp (each input on the pre-amp can be tweaked independently to level match).
At the moment I’m playing Supertramp: Breakfast in America (BRA). The source player HDMI out is connected to the Krell, coax out is connected to the DS, and analog out is connected to the pre-amp. The source player audio is set to bitstream pass-through. The audio track selected is PCM 2.0 24bit/96kHz (via the top menu audio options). The Krell is correctly identifying the audio track as PCM stereo, however the DS display Coaxial Input Source has the red dot of death, Input = PCM, rate – -- data with no sound output.
I have also tried the PCM stereo soundtracks on Seal Live in Paris (DVD) and Sting Live in Berlin (BR) and the the result is the same (red dot of death on the DS display).
What’s wrong with this configuration, why is DS not detecting PCM stereo on the coax input?
