This is my first digital mixer. Great product. I'm a newbie just learning.   I normally connect my 2 stereo CD Player connections to the line inputs of mixers I own and adjust the gain.  I'm reading the (studiolive iii 24) line inputs don't have a trim and is optimized to accept fundamental line levels. My CD player Tascam CD-RW402 seems to be over driving the line input on the studio live(the 3 LEDS) are lit most of the time.  No option to adjust the output of the CD Player (like most).  Can't find anything in manual or knowledge base. Help!

You will have to find a different way to connect the CD Player. It's outputs are too loud.

An inline pad or Direct Box for stereo outputs may be necessary. Research Radial DI boxes or similar companies for solutions.
