Multichannel RCA to digital coaxial or optical?

Hi,
I recently purchased a SACD player that only outputs multichannel through 6 RCA cables. However, my received only accepts multi-channel inputs through a digital coaxial or optical cable. Is there any solution that will allow me to splice the RCA cables into a single digital output?

Thank you,

-Peter

Unfortunately, no. The output is analog and you will need a converter to turn it into digital. What kind of SACD player is it?

Ah, that is too bad. It is a Sony SCD-CE775. How much will a converter cost and do you have any recommendations?

Are you aware that the particular model you have has a dedicated optical audio output?


There is also a stereo analog output.

Look in the back panel, you will see one singular black button that is marked as "Optical Out Digital CD"

Use that to connect to your optical input on your receiver.Upload

Ah, yes, but the problem is that the optical out only works for CDs and not SACD multichannel sound ; )

I may have listed the wrong model (was doing from memory), but I am sure that the one that I have is limited to regular CDs...

Indeed it is. The only way to get digital output from SACDs would be the hybrid SACDs which include both formats.

Unfortunately, the only way for you to use the analog outputs would be to get a receiver that can accept these inputs. That is the only available converter out on the market.
