I'm confused. How are you playing SACDs in a Rega Planet?

I'm sorry for the confusion. I can play hybrid SACD/Red Book CD discs in my Planet that will not play in my 2900. These include such titles as Norah Jones, Dark Side of the Moon, Eat a Peach etc. I was just trying to establish that the physical discs themselves were not the problem as they are all playable on another player in my system.
Thanks for consideration.
The cd layer of hybrid SACDs will play but the SACD layer will ether not play at all or will stop playing at some point in the disc. I only have one SACD only disc and I just played it all the way through with no problem. All these discs used to play on this player. It used to only have a problem with drop outs on "Dark side of the Moon" but it has been getting worse and now none of my hybrid SACDs will reliably play. Red Book CDs and DVDs (audio and vidio) play with no problems.
Have a good one
I had a similar problem with a 2910 -- fairly new. Playing multichannel disks it first displayed this behavior on SACD. I have just bought the SACD so I thought it was the disk and took the disk back. Bought the same album in DVD-A format and this started skipping as did all the disks. When I say skipping, it was more of a start/freeze/start. I took it back and it tested our fine. Seems to work ok now.
