How to get the best sound from your CD player

My CD player has both Optical and Coaxial outputs as well as the usual RCA analogue. I've found Coaxial to be superior to Optical. My receiver's CD inputs are Optical and HDMI (plus analogue). I'm not even bothering with DAC's as I feed the Coaxial output into the HDMI port and it sounds great. The DCT-37 UHD Audio Center allows me to insert the Coaxial signal into HDMI. It can upsample to 384kHz, but I've set it to BYPASS because of the statement "We’re less positive about the upsampling option on some players. If the implementation isn’t spot-on you end up with a smoother, more refined sonic presentation, but one where the attack and sparkle in the music have been diluted."
