I own a 2016 535ix with the HK sound system. If I want to play a surround sound (5.1) disk do I use a DTS disk, or SACD? Thanks.

dts disc. A dts 5.1 sample disc was included when I bought my 2014. Maybe they're not providing those anymore.
You can also play flac encoded 5.1 dts tracks from a USB drive.

I borrowed a few disks from friends and found that the DTS 5.1 disc does indeed work. Curiously, the SACD disc also works, but not the DVD-Audio.

It is likely that the sacd has a standard red line version and that is what is playing.
Cant speak to dvd audio, other that these discs may be for a system more recent than 5.1 .
