  • What kind of cable do you use to connect a cd player to a 24 channel Allen Heath gls24 mixer?

    How do you hook up a CD player to a mixer? . I am using a RCA cable red and white from the CD player to a Allen Heath GlS24 channel. Am I using the wrong cable. I am getting no signal imput on the VU meter let alone sound.

      I'm not familiar with an A&H GLS24, but: Are you patching the CD player into an insert point? If so, don't... well you maybe "can", but it would be better to patch into hi-z inputs.

      If you're using a cable similar to what BillE SC showed us, I'd have to say it's either a patching issue or something not switched/routed properly. It could be a faulty mixer but A&H has a good rep for integrity so that would be my last choice. Does the CD work elsewhere? Maybe this has all been answered in the duplicate post. I'll check it out.

    A dual RCA to TRS cable makes it easy.

      Not if the line input is TRS balanced.

    Alternately a dual RCA to dual 1/4" TS cable would work as it's already unbalanced and I'm pretty sure the A&H will accept either (TRS or TS) at it's inputs.
