Question about Technics SL-PD887 5-Disc CD Changer

1 Answer

Volume Control?? There doesn't appear to be any volume control for the SL-PD887 5-Disc CD Changer. I managed to connect speakers but again without volume. I can play cds on this model through a television like a dvd player. What equipment would I need- a remote control? Is there one available for this model which is 10-12 years old? Thank you, David_Stuart99@hotmail.com

Unlike low-end hi-fi systems where you buy one box that does everything, the CD player you have is part of a component hi-fi system (i.e. you buy your CD player, tuner, amplifer etc. as separate items.) This is why there is no volume control. It needs to be connected to an amplifer. It's on the amp that you will find the volume control and where you connect the speakers. (When you connect it to your television, you are just using that amp in the TV instead.)

The CD player did originally ship with a remote control, but I don't know where you would be able to buy one on its own. You may find the the remote does allow you to alter the output level of the CD player, but you still need to connect it to a proper amp to get it to work.

Hope this helps,

Matt

I cant hear the music very well... it is very faint and i have my speakers plugged in. how do i turn up the volume? i cant find any buttons to do so.


CD changers don't normally drive speakers (the lack of a volume control and speaker connections being a HUGE clue). What are you using for a speaker amplifier?

I dont have the remote. is there a volume control on the system?


No. Volume for external sound sources is usually left up to the preamplifier or amp.

The remote is available here for under $30...

How do you turn the volume down on a one more time please


There is a volume control on the back, unless it is missing. The newer ones also have a remote like a tv.

Arrange the volume of your jukebox without using the remote


In earlier models you plugged either the remote box OR the volume control box into the same socket on the amp. If you still have the volume control box simply plug it in where the remote is plugged in.

Volume will just blast real loud


If you have a remote control , unplug the lead from the volume control (at the back of the machine) and instead of it plugging into the Inrfa Red control unit in the base of the cabinet, plug it straight into the amp volume input.
There has been problems with the remote that does what you are suggesting so this will prove the point.

Outside speakers


The two volume controls only work independently when you set the jukebox to 2 channel and mono. One controls the jukebox, the other controls the speakers. There are 3 switches to change on the amp before it will work.
