Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

In order for an SACD disc to play in 5.1 audio the disc must have been mastered in a 5.1 audio format (DDolby® Digital technology or DTS™ audio). The mastering or format information is generally available on the sleeve of the disc. If the disc is not mastered in a 5.1 surround sound, the playback will be limited to stereo.

NOTE: Some stereo receivers have a simulated surround option, refer to the operations guide supplied with the stereo receiver for model-specific instructions regarding this setting.
