I could be wrong, but I don't think that's correct. If you're using the analog 2-channel CD inputs, and your receiver is configured as "LFE and Main" in 2-channel mode, and you've got the sound processing set to "Stereo" as opposed to "Direct" you will get subwoofer output.
BTW, I've never been quite clear on the processing differences between using digital audio connections and analog. To wit, as they used to say, if all processing and conversion is done at the receiver end when using a digital connection from the player, does that reduce the the player to nothing but a transport, rendering its relative quality irrelevant?
