On the left hand side of the front panel are clearly marked all the supported
formats that the device is capable of handling. The Super Audio CD indicator
lights up when we play a HD (High Density) layer on SACD’'s or if there
is no disk inserted, while the multi channel indicator lights up when we
play a disk that contains multiple audio signal channels or again no disk
In the middle is the tray and under it, the front panel display.
