I know these jacks are usually for DVD-A and SACD players. But if I connect my CD players analog outs to the Front-Right and the Front-Left EXT IN will this be bypassing all Bass management and be the same as an Analog Direct mode? My manual says that hooking anything to these inputs bypasses all surround circuitry. With my CD player hooked up to my regular analog jacks I kept having to go into system setup to disable the subwoofer everytime I wanted to listen to music because for movies I run my Mains in small with a Sub. So is this the best way to hook up a regular CD player if you dont want any Bass Management? Will this improve sound quality? Thanks.
