Coy protection that is inherent in SACD licensing. The only output options are analog and HDMI, in the vast majority of cases. What player is it?
Question about digital outputs
Ok....I KNOW this is likely a dumb question since I am not all that well versed in digital stuff.
So I just got a new integrated, including DAC. I wanted to run from the digital out on my SACD player (bypassing it's DAC) to the amp. But the player won't send the signal to the dig out when playing an SACD. It does with regular CD. According to the manual, this is by design. So why is that? Again, I know there must be a logical reason but, as I said, I'm not knowledgeable about digital.
PS...the player is a Marantz.

That’s the way Sony designed SACD. PS Audio is the only one I know of that worked around it. Is it worth $6500 to you?
