    I would suggest you stick it through the receiver. The whole point of a receiver is to make the "centre" of your setup, with everything going through there before going somewhere else.

    Also, by sticking it through there, you can enjoy any DSP or processing, and more amplification than with the CD player.

    I would go for the missions, which is what I will be buying soon, too.

    I'm planning to mount the m72s up on the front, which saves a bit of room.

    JSW,

    This is an unusual setup that you are putting together. You already have a DVD player and are buying an AV amp plus a further CD player / Amp combination.

    If you connect the Linn through the Sony Receiver there doesn't seem to be much point in buying it as a dedicated CD player would have been cheaper and easier to integrate.

    What exactly are you trying to achieve ?

    av amp was allready ordered

    i came across the linn in a trade

    My main concern is not the linn but which speakers i should go for?

    The linn could end up in the bedroom.
