Ide Cd Rom Sound

Hi fellas,
Does anyone know if there is a way to connect a generic IDE cd roms sound output to the input at the back of a CM883 monitor ie a twin jack plug arrangement.I dont mind getting out the old soldering iron if necessary and performing surgery as long as it works.Thanks in advance
Dave

Becuse the sound output signal from the generic cd-roms is very low I have previously conected standard RCA cables {joining the RCA's screen common to the square cd roms sound output plug's blk wire, then the white to left & red to right side of the common jumper plug supplied }

Providing you insulate your hacked connections to prevent shorting & consequential damage, it provides sufficient signal for it to be preamped via a mixer or amplifier into a useable signal.

Whether its output strength is high enough to be used by the monitor you mention I cannot say.

It's a line level output, so it should work fine with the 108x/883(3) series of monitors.

I'd take the CD-ROM's output to a pair of RCA jacks or perhaps a 3.5mm jack at the back of the computer and then continue from there to the monitor with an external cable.

Hi Jope,
Thanks for the info...I am getting my soldering iron warmed up and ready to boogey!
