    That's the best way. :)

    Hi

    Using RCA phono leads means you´ll be using the DAC´s in the Cd player, you could also use the Optical or Coaxial cable as well. Then you can use the DAC´s in the A1SE, in Pure Direct mode it goes into Dual-differential mode and uses 4 DAC´s per channel for superb quality playback.

    Hope this helps

    cheers

    For best CD-Sound use a digital connection, either optical or a 'digital' coax (75Ohm).
    If you find the DAC in the CDP superior use normal RCA interconnects.

    Go to your local dealer and buy e really good rca lead (analog).Reason being if you use a analog interconnect then you are using the dac in the player which is what you have paid the extra money for being a KI SIG.

    Dont use a coax/optical if you do you might have well purchased a normal cd 6000 ose.

    To connect digitally use a good coaxial cable, it does make a difference with CDs, not so much with DVDs...

    You should listen to the analog connection (RCAs), on direct mode, if you want to use bass management from the AV, or any DPS, it will be again converted to digital and back to analog, there I think you will be better off with the digital connection...

    Now compare both ways and use the one you like best, or both, depending on each music...

    I agree with AVMAN.
    I can see many ppl misunderstand about "sound quality" of CDPs.

    It is not so much about the DACs that cause serious serious difference in sound quality.
    I'm not saying DACs are not important at all.

    But.. it is more about the "lens" and "internal clock" that matters much more than DACs when it comes to sound quality.
    And as you know... this is often called jitter.

    I would say that connect your CDP with good quality RCA cables. Forget the DACs in A1SE.

    He can only forget the DACs in the Denon if he always uses direct mode, otherwise the signal will again be converted to digital, and back to analog, I say any conversion will change, degrade, so to use bass management or Dolby or DTS he is better using the digital connection...

    I agree.

    When you listen to CD in "Direct Mode" or "Pure Direct Mode" RCA cable is the way to go for serious stereo listening.

    What's the point of using DOLBY or DTS when you listen to 2ch stereo music.

    DPLII is very good for two channel, particularly TV, VHS, Radio and even CDs when the recording is not perfect or you doing casual listening.

    Plus you don´t get bass management in direct mode...

    I never tried DTS NEO, only similar from TAG and ONKYO.

    I prefer the sound of DPLII, plus it has two modes, Movie, that you cannot change, very good for movies and TV, and music, where you can change three parameters to vary the width, depth of the stage and volume of the center channel as you please...
