Question: How can I connect more than one
stereo CD changer to my single stereo CD/Aux input jack on my receiver
or amplifier? Do I have to use an external mixer? How did you solve
Answer: You can use a passave stereo
mixer or combiner as shown below, or a commercially available
active stereo mixer with multiple channels (see the Extras
page), or the type that DJ's use for clubs or parties (available
at Radio Shack). They usually have sliders or volume controls
and usually run on household voltage or batteries. You can
build the passive mixer above for about $20 and less than
an hour of your time (click on the Making the Mixer link below).
Cost for active mixers run about $150-$300 and are available
from some of the companies listed on our Extras Page.
