What to do with CD Changer faulty in Bose Lifestyle system?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I have a Bose Lifestyle system for a number of years and recently, the CD changer is having a problem and it's beyond repair. May I know how can I use the rest of the system,ie. amp/base and 2 speakers, without using the CD Changer? As the CD changer connects the amp/base to the speakers, how I can use another alternate component to replace this changer?

Should I discard the amp/base instead?

Tks!

Other than aesthetics, what keeps you from plugging in another media player?

The amp and speakers of a Bose integrated system are generally highly optimized for each other. The amp/base and the speakers should not be separated.

Yes, the amp and speakers were great but they are linked up by a CD changer which is not working now. The speaker zone is connected from the CD changer to the amp and amp to speaker. I don't intend to get another Bose CD Changer because it's expensive.

Is there any way to use any CD player but have a connector that suits Bose?

All the information available to me suggests that the line in or aux in connectors on Bose systems are standard RCA connectors that consumer audio gear uses.

If you have an input available with RCA jacks, which I think you do, any CD player can be plugged in there.

The TEAC PDD-2610 is a 5-disc changer that is only $105 on Amazon.

ON THE BACK OF BOSE LIFESTYLE 20 YOU WILL FIND RCA PLUGS FOR CD ON ANY AUDIO INPUT
SELECT THE INPUT TO ACCEP THIS INPUT
