Question: Car CD Changer

Let's just imagine that I want to take the cd changer out of my truck and use it in the home, what would I have to do for it to work?

Obviously, I'd need a power source. Is there a way to rig it to a normal outlet?

What about hooking it up to a tube amplifier?

Or should I just abandon this line of thought completely, cause it's moronic?

12vdc power is easy to get at home, just buy an adapter. As far as the out put from the changer being compatible with your amp, I don't know. Assuming your changer has line outs like mine and your amp has line ins you should be ablt to try. If it doesn't work you're out $10 for an adapter.

just seems like so much extra work when you could buy a CD changer that plugs into a) the wall b) tube amplifier for around US$75.00 - US$150.00

Agree, interesting thought, not sure why you would want to do it, but assuming RCA inputs and outputs with your amp/CD changer and an inexpensive transformer should be possible...That being said, Tube amp??? any reason why???? While I have heard the reasoning behind tube amps in higher end musical reproduction systems, these are normally based around record players and low wattage speakers.

I'm currently running the amp from my car in my apartment. If you have an old PC powersupply lying around, you can just cut the wires that go to one of the big power cables(for cd and hd) and just wire those into the power for the changer. I went looking for a converter, but all I could find was $60+ options. This may be a fire hazard, but has worked great for me.

be sure to pay attention to how many amps your using and get a power supply that's rated for what you need!

Frist off, sorry it took so long to reply. I was out of town last week.

Why go to the extra work? Long story: I'm thinking of selling my truck, but want to keep the CD changer I installed in it. Not sure if I want to put it in the next car. I was actually thinking of satellite radio.

Also, my cd player in the house has crapped out and I thought, "Why not just use the changer I already have in the house?"

I might just file this under, "Seemed like a good idea at the time."
