I have a mixer that has line and the old phono inputs. The line input is fine for my laptop. But, I need some kind of converter to get my cd player into the phono input. Do they make any kind of unit for this? I need to get the level of the the cd player down enough for the phono input's phono preamp secttion to handle. Sort of un preamping, if you will.

What connector does your cd player use, i'd assume a 3.5 mm jack although I can only make assumptions and those may lead to bad info.

There are lots of 1/8" to 1/4" adapters, but..
If the mixer's phono input has an RIAA equalizer built in, you aren't going to like what a CD input sounds like even if you do get an adapter to fit.

Hi. My issue is not the phono plugs on the devices, but bringing down the hi output of the cd player in order to play it through the phono input of the mixer.

Thanks for your response. Are you saying that the RIAA equalizer is like a preamp and will cause distortion if I plug the cd player straight in, possibly blowing some circuitry?
