Default quick question

I accidentally plugged in one end of the rca cable into the left socket on the cd player and the other end into the right socket, while i was changing cables.
So I joined up left to right.

can this cause damage?

Not unless there was already something terribly wrong with the player.

If you connect L output to R output.

What will happen is dependent on the output buffer design. Most are short circuit proof. In which case the buffer amps get warm, and dissipate more power until the short is removed.

Then they cool back down to normal operating temp.

You wouldn't be able to tell what cd is in the player without ejecting it or looking at the case and you;d have a spare interconnect
