    Im going to purchase a Sony STR-DB1070 reciver and a CDP-CE375 CD changer. Am I better off to use the TOSLink to connect the CD player to the amp? Or use a good quality RCA cables and use the DSP bypass in the reciver to drive direct 2 chanel analog?

    Also what are the Hi/Low frequecny ranges that CD's can produce.

    Allan, ultimately, you will have to test the 'CE375 with the both the analog and optical digital output to determine which one sounds better. My guess is that the optical digital output will sound better because the 'CE375 doesn't have a high-quality DAC or analog output stage. Still, you will have test out both connections. Let us know what you find out.

    In many cases, a CD player will be rated between 20 Hz and 20 kHz (frequency response). Some better players are rated down to 2 Hz.
