Kind of cable to buy to connect my MP3 player to Sony CD player
I purchased a Sony Micro Hi-Fi Component System CMT-BX20i. It accepts 1 cd, has a radio, and an iPod dock w/adapters, but I own an inVion MP3 player.
The salesperson said I could listen to the music on my MP3 player with the addition of a cable so I bought it. I checked and I do not have this cable with my MP3 player. The instructions with the Sony cd player state that "additional audio components can be connected to the AUDIO IN jack using an audio analog cord". It said to turn down the volume on the system, and then select the AUDIO IN function. Why does the volume need to be turned down, and what specifically do I ask for when I go to purchase the cable?
Thank you. Jane
