Hi fellow music lovers, I have a question which will determine the way I am going to listen to my SACDs in the future. My choices are: a.) The 5.1 mix or b.) the stereo mix I have been playing around with my setup and I can play 5.1 Multi-Channel files through the DAC of my MacBook connected to my Stax Energizer (which is an AMP only) just fine. The channels are all present and seem correctly placed. Only 7.1 is missing a couple of channels. What happens when a DAP like the SP1000 or even the internal DAC of a Macbook are faced with 5.1 mixes and feed that signal to a stereo out. I presume some kind of down mix? Is there a downside to using the 5.1 mixes or even an upside?
