Has anyone had any luck with the the new Sony Blu Ray players BDP-S570, S470, and S370 which can send out direct DSD output from SACD? I have connected an S570 to an Onkyo TS-SR805. However when playing the Pentatone test SACD, the Surround surround tracks come out of the front speakers instead of the surrounds. The Onkyo also reports PCM. I just bought the Onkyo used on Ebay so I am not very familiar with it. I have the player set to multichannel output. Any ideas?

I found the problem to be either my misconfiguraiton or a defective player. I bought it from Costco and they returned it. The replacement unit sent out DSD that the Onkyo could recognized and chanign the listening modes provided the correct 5.1 sound. I think this combination works really well now.
