You asked on the deal here, how many inputs. I have one CD input on the back of amplifier and this other part called a Y-connector? Each one works fine without the other. The Fisher works great either way, but the Sony does not, even with the power turned off to the one not being used. Do you think I'll have to buy a new amplifier with two CD changer inputs?

Re: number of inputs
Each CD Player has audio out put amplifier circuit and this output amp remains Mute until it receive signal to out it. While using Y-Connector, when you try to listen one player sound, other goes to Mute as its in Stop position and caused to minimize the out put of other player which is being played. That's why you listen good sound if just one is connected. If you want to connect both players at one amplifier, you need at-least 2 inputs in amplifier and since your Fisher amp has not 2 inputs, so I suggest to buy another amp equipped with 2 or more inputs. Hope this info will help you.

Amp?? You want to connect an audio amplifier to another audio amplifier? Well, start by finding your local electronic repair shop's phone number as "speaker level" does not play well with another "speaker level." External devices such as CD, MP3, DVD, etc. output what is called "Line" level which is a fraction of the amount created by speaker level amplifiers. Audio equipment is designed to amplify this line level input to a speaker level that will...well, power speakers. Wikipedia should be able to explain this in more depth.
If you have a pure amplifier, there may only be one set of inputs, and one or two pairs of speaker outputs. The inputs are probably RCA plugs. Connect the CD or tape player to these. The speaker outputs are typically heavier binding posts or wire clamps. Each speaker should have one pair of wires. One for the 'Red' post, another for the 'Black' post.
If you have a 'Receiver' you will have several inputs to use and switches in front to select them. The CD and tape can be plugged into either tape, CD, or Aux inputs. (Not 'Phono') The speakers hookup is the same as for the amplifier.
You may also want to google the make-model of your amp to find a manual....
You can connect the CD player to the amplifier using a standard set of RCA cables (left and right channel / red & white connectors). Connect the CD output to an input on the amplifier (usually one designated for CD or possibly "Aux") Then select this input source in order on the Amplifier.
There would be no reason to connect the CD player to a Tuner. Not even sure a tuner whould have any inputs in order to connect a CD player.
if your turntable has an integrated amplifier you connect it directly to any regular input like DVD or CD. If this is a classic turntable you need to buy external phono amplifier. It is a small box with phono inputs and rca regular outputs you plug your turntable trough this box to cd or dvd input of the receiver. Can be tube or transistor amplifier. price vary from 20 to hundreds dollars.
This unit is just a 5 disc CD player and cannot drive large speakers all by itself. Normally it is hooked up to a stereo receiver / amplifier which is what provides the power to drive the speakers which are wired to the back of the stereo amplifier.
If you have a home stereo, then just run the cables from the 2 AUDIO OUT connectors on the back of your CD player to the CD IN connectors on the back of your stereo.
Then turn your stereo on and select CD on your stereo input mode selector and you should be able to play the cds on your RCA and hear them through the stereo speakers.
If you do not have a stereo amplifier with speakers to connect it to, then you can always listen to it through headphones connected to the headphone jack.
Or if you have a set of self powered amplified speakers, like the kind you hook up to a computer, then you can run the AUDIO OUT cable from your cd player into those as well.
Since you are already using cd and tape inputs you can use the audio part of any video input (I think that this amplifier doesn't mute the signal in case of no video input). Since your i-pod is a portable device it's a good idea to use the front panel (video 4 input) audio connectors.

Your receiver should have an RCA connector on the back panel that will be marked "sub woofer" or "LFE out". That connects to your sub woofer with a standard RCA type cable. Also, some powered subs have left and right speaker level inputs and outputs in which you would indeed run the sub woofer through the speaker outputs. The down side of that type of connection is that the line level converter inside the sub woofer will take a slight amount of your receiver's output power, although that is rarely detectable. Also, if you have a Dolby Digital receiver, using this connection method will take away systems ability to accurately control the low frequency effects of a soundtrack.
