By the way, it seems to me that this SACD is authored as 5.0 not 5.1 since the software glitch in my Marantz SACD player allows me to flip the rear channels. Did anyone here rip it and could confirm it?
Yep will not be 5.1 since it is Quad 4.0 release :LB , should be no center speaker - hope this helps :LB

It is a 4.0 release, but the SACD be authored as either 5.1 with center and sub channels present but silent, or as 5.0 with center channel silent and no channel for the sub - not just silent but actually nonexistent. My question was precisely about this distinction.
