So! Then! What is the format on my S&M Test Disc that gives me the 96K output? It is on the Dolby tru-HD 7.1 and 5.1 sound test and also on the DTS test.
Thanks for the input. Since I wrote last I tried my S&M Test Disc in the Sony 7000 BDP. It DID give me 96K and my receiver recognized it an played it. The sound improvement was definitely noticeable even to my non-audiophile ears. I'm still wondering why the 7000 does not "see" 96K on other discs that are supposed to have 96K on them.
This old dog needs to learn new tricks. I am confused by all of the "LETTERS" in your posts...FLAC? MLP? I purchased the 2 disc Dream Theater set from Amazon.
I have a Sony Blu-Ray carousel BDP CX 7000ES that will send 96K from an S&M test disc to my Onkyo TX-NR 5009 which plays the 96K but I never see anything other than 48K from the DVD (it sounds great, anyway) and 44.1K from the CD. I am almost clueless regarding downloading all of those sample rates you all mention.
Besides experience...what am I not getting here?
