This is on the basis of one album (the CPE Bach Cello Concertos - I'm sure the other two will be the same): I resorted to the simple expedient of turning off all the other amplifiers except for the center one, and, sure enough, there WAS a signal in the center channel. (Yeay!)
However (there's always a however!), what I hear is unlike any other center channel signal I've ever heard before on a MCh recording: it sounds as if everything is way off mike (or, indeed, as if it's some kind of ambiance signal, more suitable for a surround channel). It still doesn't sound right to me.
Of course, it's not what you expected but, as I say, I have come across a few SACDs just like that. See link for an example of one of my favorite SACDs. There's nothing in that "center" channel but for some ambiance.
I love this CD but, especially, the last track, "Mozart The Gypsy & Mozart SÓrba," a rip-roaring take on Mozart's Violin Concerto in A major K219.
