    Default Music Fidelity KW SACD player...

    I just received this unit and have been playing a few red book CD's and a few SACD's

    My only issue so far is getting the player to play Hybrid SACD's in SACD mode, it will pick up that it's playing a standard SACD but not a Hybrid SACD..

    Thoughts??

    On another note I have read good and bad reveiws of this player, this unit is built like a tank and has none of the issues that I have read in some of the bad reveiws noisy transport one guy states his is a $7000 door stop

    Like I said I don't hear any noise or see any flaws except the Hybrid SACD reading..

    Larry, is there a way to choose either standard CD or SACD with a button on the player face or remote? My Denon DVD-5910 allows you to choose which layer you want to play on hybrid SACD's. You may need to set the player to default to the SACD layer when using a hybrid disc. Other than that, I am not sure.

    Nope, there is no button to choose from, my Sony has that option..

    Doing a google search I found this.

    "The only other glitch with mine (which I've learned to live with) is that when just switched on it is reluctant to recognise the SACD layer of hybrid discs. However when fully warmed up (the legs start red, go orange and then turn blue when the valves are appropriately cooking!) this problem diappears. "

    Larry, try the hybrid SACD when the legs are blue and see if it works. According to the SA-CD.net link BlueFox provided that should solve the problem. I hope it does for you, otherwise hopefully Jesse can help when he returns. What's he doing anyway?
