I'm new to the forum, so please excuse me if I'm running over well-trodden ground with this question.
I have recently purchased a Musical Fidelity Tri-Vista SACD with matching integrated amp and Sonus Faber Grand Piano Domus speakers. To my ears, the system sounds absolutely marvelous with both CD and SACD.
As I've purchased more SACDs I've noticed that many are multi-channel. However the Tri-Vista SACD is a stereo only player. I know there seem to be many audiophiles who advocate two channels only for music, but I'm kind of curious as to what I'm missing out on with all those extra tracks on my SACDs.
Wondering whether anyone else has had their curiousity piqued by multi-channel, and what listeners consider to be the advantages/disadvantages of stereo vs multi-channel for music.
I know the Tri-Vista can be used as a DAC in conjunction with separate transport, but can it handle multi-channel sources?
Thanks & regards,
