CD player for Magnavox console
If this is the wrong forum for this please accept my apology and redirect me. My wife is very fond of her old Magnavox Astro Sonic stereo console. It is the long low walnut model. Neither of us are really audiophiles, but we love to listen to music of our youth, the 20's, 30's and 40's. We now have the music on CDs rather than vinyl because it is much more convenient. I have figured out a satisfactory way to use the cabinet for storage of hundreds of CDs, but replacing the turntable and radio with a convenient CD reader is more complicated than I had anticipated. I know that power levels and impedance matching are important considerations, for using the console's speakers, and maybe even its amplifier, but I have no idea if it is practical to try to do so. Also, the fact that CD players normally load from the front with the CD horizontal may present a problem. Will a CD player that is intended for horizontal use function properly if it is mounted vertically? Surely this inquiry will at least be good for a good laugh.
