OK, I've done searches both here and on Audio Asylum and cannot seem to find an answer to my question. I've had this player for three months on a two channel bedroom system and am using Paradigm Ref 40's with no sub. I'm about to move this player to another system that utilizes a sub and have a question. If I use bass management on the player and change the setting from 2CH-Direct to 2CH+Sub, can this management be accomplished when using the L/R analog outputs only? Or do I have to connect the player via the L/R outputs of the multichannel set? Also, do I have to connect the sub output on the player to my receiver? If my receiver doesn't have 5.1 analog inputs, does it matter if I use the bass management in the player? See my problem? I am going to hook this player up as if it were a normal CD player, using the analog outputs into the CD input on my receiver attempting to use bass management on the player. Not sure this is going to work and the manual is anything but clear on this. Unfortunately, I cannot move this player into the second system for another week so I don't even know if it's worth it. Please help. Thanks.
