Car CD Players; Do they output at "Line Level?"
I haven't found a CD player for home use that stores/plays 5 CD's and that is narrow enough to fit into a 12 inch wide space. I do not have room for a 5 CD turntable. I would like to solve this, and I'm ready to go to semi-extreme lengths.
There are modern car stereo systems that allow loading of 5 or 6 CD's and then sequential or random playback. What about using a car stereo as a home CD player? I could easily create a 12 VDC power supply. My question would be, is the output at a typical household level known as "Line Level?" I mean adequate for the usual RCA wires and jacks. LP players, for example, are much lower level output, so they have to be pre-amped just to get to line level output.
I would take the line level signal from the car CD player, and jack it into an amp that has RCA inputs. Even the Sonos Connect-Amp has 1 set of RCA inputs.
Anyone know if a car CD player is line level output?
There's a proper time and place for spontaneity, dammit!
