OK, this is going to be the dumbest question ever, so bear with me. I have a ten year old Yamaha CD changer (CDP-91) that is still alive and kicking and gets some use around the house once in a while. It obviously lacks any type of digital output, neither toslink or coax. The sound quality of this unit is not even comparable to my new Sony-SCD555ES SACD player. However, I am about to get a new pre-amp (Anthem AVM-20) that has the latest DAC's on the market. I've heard this unit fed a digital signal from a transport and it sounds phenomenal. One of the features of the processor is that you can feed it an analog signal, have the processor redigitize (for bass management features I suppose amongst other things) and then back to analog and onto the speakers. My question is this. Will my Yamaha sound unquestionably better using the Analog-DSP connection rather than pure analog bypass because it then gets redigitized by the better DACS in the processor or is the fact that the signal sent in a poorer analog form from my CD player the limiting factor in how good the music can sound. Maybe I'm not making my point clearly but I guess I'm asking that can my Yamaha be salvaged in this manner or is my sound quality always going to be lacking regardless of what mode I put the processor in?
