Dear all, I have a question and hope that you can help?... I have a Kenwood M-47 system, but the DP-470 isn't working. If I was to buy a replacement cd player would I be able to sever the ribbon connector that leads from the cd player to the radio and amp. so that the connector would only be connecting the amp to the radio?... I.E. Would the amp still power the radio even if the connection no longer runs through to the cd player? See attached picture. Thanks for your help!
