My CD mix 2 appears to have loose connections at the main input and both of the phono inputs. When playing live it crackles badly. The leads are ok as they work fine with my spare Mix 2. Can I replace the back panel which supplies all the power?

Re: Numark CD mix 2
I would remove the back panel, and get access to the soldering of the connectors that are giving you trouble. resolder them, and see how you go. Get back to me here if this does not cure it and we shall get into it further

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.
It looks like your amplifier has not got a "magnetic cartridge pre-amp" built in, or you have it connected to a tape/cd input instead of a phono input. All you need is to search online for one and that will connect between your deck and amp and it will then be the same volume as anything else connected to the amp.
yes you need an amplifier with or without phono input.
your turntable has three types of output
1.phono output (can connect to the phono input of an amplifier which has a phono input)
2. line level output [can connect to ( aux,cd,tape,tunner what u prefer) an amplifierwhich has these inputs] there is a selection switch for phono or line level output on the back side
3. and usb( to computer)
A turntable use a magnetic cartridge and its output is only 5 to 10 millivolts.A moving coil cartridge is even lower,.2 to .5 millivolts(thats 1/2000 of a volt)in contrast, a mp3 puts out a 300 to 900 mv signal..so does a CD player. Your turntable does not have enough signal.You need to get an amplifier that has a phono input. Years ago,radio shack used to sell phono preamps that could plug into a tape or cd input.The other option is to buy a used mixer that has a phono input.The mixer output can drive the cd input easily,as the max output from a mixer is 1.5 volts to 2 volts.
Try connecting the turntable to one of the other inputs like CD / tuner etc and see if the buzzing disappears. if so then your turntable has a built-in pre-amp so it can be connected to any input except 'phono' as this would obviously be used for turntables without a pre-amp. a lot of modern turntables now have built-in pre-amps to compensate for certain amps and receivers made without a phono input and can now be connected just like a CD player, tuner etc.
Just wanted to tell you i have the same problem with my right deck! after about 2-3 hours of usage the right deck will start to skip while playing a cd...almost sounds like im fast forwarding then itll just stop playing, but only on the right deck! Ive noticed that it happens when the unit gets hot whether by usage or sunlight. Now as for youre issue about the crackling, i have two staements one is the cd youre playing scratched? ive had cds that have had minor path scratches that follow around the cd not straight across scratches..while playing this sounds like static or crackle then fades away! I would recommend playing the cd in a entirely different unit to see if this is the prob...if you know this is not the issue i would say that its a loose connection to a capicator or that a capacitor is on the way out...this happens when the capacitor is cold and doesnt let proper flow to go thru but as the capacitor heats up it it may heat the connection making a better contact.....just out of curiousity do you have the right rated fuse in the holder.. sometimes just having a fuse off by a couple of volts or milliamps can cause the same effect
