When I try to play a CD with my Blu-ray player it starts to play in M/ch Music, Discrete. It can’t find the 2 ch Music setting. Is this correct?

I have a Sooloos, so I don't remember if I could play in the 2 ch Music setting, but I think so.

I also noticed that in the Discrete setting in M ch Music the sub LFE level was set to -10dB, is this correct?

I bought my 861v8 secondhand, so I don't know what he have done right or wrong. Hope somebody can advice me.

Are you playing CD's via a HDMI connection through your HD621?

Your 861 still sees a 6 channel source, even though there's only two channels of info coming through, hence being locked on Multichannel presets.

I don't have a HD621 so can't comment on it's configuration, but an easy fix is to run a single SPDIF cable from the digital output of the BD player to an unused digital input on the 861 for use with CDs (or other two channel discs), and you'll get the normal 2 channel DSP preset selection.

Cheers

George

This will also sound better, you should avoid the HD621 for pure music playback.

I have all my CDs in the Sooloos, i was only wondering if i had done some mistake in the configuration of the 861, I have also a Teac P70 transport to use.
Thanks for your help.

Unless the source is BD-A or SACD, where the SPDIF output will be restricted / downsampled to 48/24 by the BD player, whereas HDMI to the HD621 would output up to 96/24?
