quick question..

On my cd player I pressed the 'CDS' button on my alpine 7909 when playing a cd.
What exactly does it do ?
Supposedly it blocks out some tone and balance circuits on the player for a quieter sound...thats what the manual says.

C.D.S. = Compact Disc Straight

According to your information, it bypasses the tone controls and maybe the balance/fader. The spec sheet I have doesn't go into detail, and it's been too many years since my one and only 7909 experience.

Removing any un-needed active stages or impedances from the signal path will potentially yield a less colored sound.

Have you made any plans for your old-school system?

No audio output. Basically the dc/dc converter was shot I guess. The shop said they opened it and repaired a transister in it...
