hi
I have a question about WYWH SACD 2016, which has same product number as 2018 disks. The disk sounds excellent, the 5.1 is immersive, the ordinary cd track plays fine, but the stereo SACD track has a fault. On track 4, the guitar playing is missing for the first minute. The cough and sniff are there, but otherwise silence. I find this very annoying as I can get the best quality audio by playing the disk on my Oppo and outputting through the RCA plugs to my hifi amp and speakers. It seems to me that generally people will either listen to the cd stereo or 5.1 tracks, as these are what most systems would play automatically. As the fault is not with the disk itself but with the audio, it is quite possible that many other disks are affected. Maybe the fault has already been noted and discussed? I was just wondering how common this problem is so I can judge whether it is likely to affect any other disk I might buy. after returning this one.
