Yes, you just need the appropriate cables. The simplest being a 3.5mm jack to phono to make a direct link tween your laptop output and one of the two channel inputs. Then you simply choose phones on your front end (whichever channel you plugged into) and away you go.
You cannot connect it diretly to speaker. It has only preamplifier output for left and right channels, and an optical output to connect it to digital input sources. You must have an amplifier and speaker system to connect it with. It can be any type and brand you like, according to your taste and finacial capacity. Amps can be of cheaper to high quality type. This device can be connected to a digital amplifier, with optical intput, frome which it will convert the signal upto 8 channels or more. But the cost will be sometimes 200 times to the cost of your present device you have revealed here. OK.
The answer isn't with the CD player, it's with the amp. Does the amp have selectable inputs, or does it just have one input for each channel?
If it's a simple power amp, then you'll have to unplug the CD player and connect your iPod to the amp inputs. I'm guessing that the CD player connects to the amp with RCA (phono) connectors like these ones. If that's the case, you can get a cable (like this one at Radio Shack, but any office supply store will have one too) to connect your iPod to the amp.
You will need one RCA video cable it will have a yellow, red and white plugs. On the back of your VCR locate where the color inputs are find where it says VIDEO OUT hook it up there. On the back of the DVD Recorder look for the same color input jacks NOW find where it says VIDEO IN hook it up there. You may have to turn on your TV,DVD recorder and VCR to get the right channel. your Recorder may have one or more video inputs if it does turn on all three. Use the channel on your TV you use to watch DVDs make sure you see your DVD screen. Now to record to a DVD. Change the channel on the DVD Recorder. Look for the input channels It may be Video 1 Video 2 etc... depends on the inputs you have. ( A great way to tune your DVD Recorder is to play a prerorded VCR tape. Turn the channel on your DVD Recorder unil you see the prereorded tape playing. )
Your assessment that it duplicates CD's internally fits with an analog-only failure mode. Let's make sure the signal is getting past your RCA jacks on the deck...
Put the deck in a Rec/Standby mode and make sure an analog source registers adequate volume on the meters. If it's good there and doesn't change with cable swapping between the input channels, you're right, the problem is internal. Maybe the volume potentiometer itself has developed a dead spot. Manually rotate it throughout its range many times to wipe it clean.
If you have an external optical digital source use it to check the meters in digital recording mode to be sure they're about even. The same knob affects analog and digital levels.
If you have the deck connected via the traditional Tape Monitor circuit in a receiver you should be able to tell by ear if the one channel is dead or too low. This puts all of the recording circuitry including the volume knob in line with your receiver.
You may possibly have a fault with the RED RCA output plug on your CD possibly a loose wire on the internal side or a faulty plug altogether. Try plugging it into another stereo and see if the problem replicates itself.... if so then i am sure that will be the case.
If there is a headphone output on the unit try listening through it to see if the sound is in both channels. If so,it is likely a dry / fractured solder joint on or near the jack connector. If not it could point to a failure of the digital -> analogue convertor IC chip.
