What's a CDP?

One amp or two simultaneously?

Via what connection? You can't hook up a CDP directly to any amp unless you mean a receiver, in which case you'd need a splitter of some kind but again, we need to know what connection you're trying to use.

I have 1 amp hooked up to a Yamaha DSP so I get 4 channel sound output.
The other amp is my dedicated 2ch with the turntable and cdp connected.

On occasions i would like to listen to the cd via the sound processor withour the hassle of swapping over cables

Hope that explains it better

From CD player:

Use optical/coax for the 4 channel system.
Use analog (red/white) for 2 channel system.

Both amps are analogue as is the sound processor, so only have the option of RCA output.
I have a rca splitter but it only has 1 output ( to amp) with 3 inputs ( from source)

No digital inputs on amps, they are both vintage 70s.

Sorted
A) Connected CDP to Tape 1 input Amp 1
B) Connected Amp Tape 2 Rec Out to DSP Line input
C) Connected DSP IN/OUT to Amp 2 Tape 1 In /Out

For 2ch listening through better amp/speakers play CD and select tape 1 input.

For 6 channel sound process
Select tape 1 > 2 copy and i have a pretty good DSP 6 channel controlled by 2 amps

Brain now hurts and going for a lie down

A splitter would have 1 input and 3 outputs.
Unless it's powered, using it in reverse is bad news.

Thanks

Sorted it with some slow brained thinking, using the 2nd tape rec out to DSP line in which feeds 2nd amp.
Fortunately my Sony amp has tape copy function

Unless I am misunderstanding what you are attempting to do, just split the CD player's left and right channel analog outputs to feed the stereo inputs of your two separate analog components. I'm assuming your "Yamaha DSP" is an integrated amp and the other unit is a receiver or another integrated amp--you are vague on this. It would've been helpful to provide the specific models.

Use these or something similar:

https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Matters...s%2C304&sr=8-7

Music room: Cary SLI-80 tube integrated amplifier, McIntosh MA6500 integrated amplifier, Quad 99 preamp, Quad 909 power amp, Acoustic Research AR9 loudspeakers, Yamaha CD-N500 CD player, Teac UD-503 DSD DAC, Phase Linear 8000 II linear-tracking turntable.
Theater room: Panasonic 65S60 plasma television; Yamaha RX-A2020 (preamp section); Adcom GFA-5503 and GFA-5400 amplifiers; Polk LSi25, LSiC, and LSiF/X loudspeaker system; Velodyne FSR-18 servo-subwoofer.
