Listening to Pink Floyd’s Endless River Blu-Ray disc using the Coax out with a quad shielded RG-6 short length cable. The “Stereo PCM” is supposed to output 96/24 and it’s only flagged on the OLED SGCD as 48kHz. Thinking maybe I have my SOny’s UBP-1000ES’s PCM settings messed up, I checked. It’s max’d to 192kHz PCM and Auto mode for SACD playback.
Flipping back to 96kHz form 192kHz still flagged the disc as 48kHz. Put the Sony back to 192kHz and checked with my 2002 DVD-A of Neil Young’s Harvest which is a 192kHz in 2 channel mode. All is well on the SGCD. It display’s 192kHz. I have a couple of Blu-RAy Audio only discs that I’ll try later today that are 96kHz/24Bit only discs and see if they are flagged also at 48kHz instead of 96kHz. Then I tried my Rush Moving Pictures DVD-A and it’s correctly displayed as 96kHz with the SOny max’s at 192kHz.
Haven’t tried the DAC inside the Sony AVR because I’ve already done my version of an A/B test using the SGCD (Analog 1 XLR is my front L & R feed, input 5 is my PCM/Coax feed from the Sony Disc Player).
Have any of you noticed the similar thing with Blu-Ray Audio Discs versus DVD Audio Discs.
