So .... I am all about quality sound.

I love the sound I get from playing Regular CDs, also files WAV, FLAC and even 320kbp MP3 music....all via USB card in my Samsung BD-ES6000. Through HDMI.

Now .... a friend gave me his old Sony C222ES CD Player that I guess was very good back in the day. He suggests connecting via Analog and through cables he gave me. See pic below.



Does this sound right???
Will CDs sound better via Analog Sony CD player vs HDMI Samsung blu ray player???

please advise.

Denon AVR 4311ci, Ascend Sierra-1 NrT, Ascend HTM-200 (surrounds), Rythmik F12, Panasonic TH50PX60U, Samsung BD ES6000, Denon DVD-2910 SACD/DVDa, Monster HTS 5100 MKI, Monster Z2 Biwire, Logitech Harmony One, Sennheiser HD600, Schiit Modi/Vali

It depends on whether or not the DAC in the Sony is better than the DAC in your AV receiver...and whether the difference between them is audible, which it may not be.

Probably a step backward in terms of sound quality.

For a variety of reasons, some having nothing to do with the inherent sound sound quality of the two different music players, I can pretty well guarantee that they will sound different to you. There is a tendency for naive audiophiles to perceive any difference as an improvement. In reality, you are probably getting the best sound you can get with the equipment at hand with the Samsung BD-ES6000.

There are naive people who think that every digital audio component and every DAC sounds different, but in reality the good ones, which are plentiful and rapidly increasing in number , sound the same. The most important parameters for sound quality are the recordings themselves, your speakers and your room's acoustics and how you have the speakers placed in the room.

You can play SACDs with the Sony player in native DSD. Those will almost certainly sound better on the Sony than the Samsung, if the Samsung plays SACD at all.
