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?

Hi sounds like you have the audio out from the cd changer connected to the RCA/Phono out of the radio. double check that the output from the CD changer is going into the correct phono/rca connector regards Mark www.carradiospares.co.uk
