Hi:\n\nI suppose this subject has been brought up in the past. If so, I’m sorry for appearing redundant. I am unsure of this issue and would like some direction. \n\nFirst a little background. I’m am an audiophile beginner. A little over a year ago, I put together my system. Now, I had been a HIFI enthusiast in the mid 1980s. I let the hobby go, but picked it up again after retirement. \n\nAt best, my equipment is low entry level. IE, an Audio Technica PL 120xusb turntable, a Sony Strdh190 receiver, Polk Audio T15 and Sony CSCC 3 way speakers. They sound fine to me, but who knows about the future. \n\nAt this point, my primary music source is vinyl. It just so happens that I have a number of CDs, most of which I burned a few years ago to play in my car. At that time on occasions for my last job, I had to travel. Now that I’m retired, when in my car, I play music I downloaded to my cell phone. I don’t use those CDs while driving. Anyway, there are a few I enjoy hearing. \n\nIn order to play the CDs, I have been using a DVD player manufactured for video viewing. I have attached it to my system through one if my receiver’s imputes. This way the CDs are plated through my stereo system. I find the resulting sound pleasing. \n\nOne day I will probably purchase a component stereo CD Player, but for now this set up is fine for me. \n\nMy question is obvious, “Do you think a DVD player can produce music comparable to a component CD player”. In my situation that seems to be the case. It seems that the DVD player is all I need. None the less, there maybe more to this situation than meets the eye. So, I would like to know what all of you think. \n\nThanks in advance,\n\nLenny.
