I have just purchased a new cd player and before swapping to the new one I listened to the old NAD to compare the improvements. I pressed CD and then direct which cuts of the processing. The sound coming through sounded dull and muddy, nothing like its normal sound. Switching direct off the sound came alive again through the processor. I then connected the new player and the same results occurred. What's happened to my direct mode??? It used to sound soooo good in straight stereo. Anybody got any ideas? I am using V.D.H. the name analogue connects.
