Connect Samsung S7 to separate speakers?

    I have a cd player/radio that has an "audio in". Is there a way I can connect my S7 to that cd player thru it's "audio in" so I can play music thru its speakers instead of the phone's speakers? If there is a way, what connection would I need? The cd player is not blue tooth enabled.

    Forgive me for the hopefully not-to-dumb question, I'm an older lady!

    You might be able to take a 3.5mm stereo patch cable and plug the headphone output into the radio's input jack, assuming that's also 3.5mm, but even if it worked you'll probably be amplifying an already amplified signal. It won't sound very good. However, for around $15 you can get a Bluetooth adapter that plugs into the input jack and gives your phone a way to connect wirelessly.

    Actually, in my personal experience, a wired connection from the headphone jack is an ideal audio connection.

    Any extra auxillary connection (like bluetooth or radio) must be powered, and so is typically dependant upon batteries- sometimes the ubiquious alkaline letter cells, but even worse are those horrible button cells.

    Generally, a volume setting of 67% without effects or 53% with effects will produce a typical line level ouput that is compatible with audio equipment.

    These percentages correspond to (in order) two steps above half way up and half way up the volume scale.
    I am basing this on the typical volume system on Android, which is divided into 15 settings.

    So 67% is 10 steps from 0, and 53% is 8 steps from 0.

    This is what I have learned as a live sound engineer, where I sometimes have to hook up phones or such devices to mixing boards and the like that have VU-meters (or the modern equivalent).

    Also, I have an older head unit in my car, and this is how I connect my device to it.
    There is an LED VU-meter on the equalizer that controls three of the amps connected to the stereo. There is also an LED VU-meter on the amp that powers the front speakers. Both of these meters are in unison and correlate to meters on other audio equipment that I connect in the same way.

    When I use the settings described above, the results are the same as if I connect any other line level device with an actual line out, such as a CD player or whatever.
