Default CA 540C as a transport

Hi guys , I have been given a 540 C MK1 Cambridge audio cd player with a faulty dac board.
I decided to use it as a transport so I removed the dac board completely and fitted a BNC socket.
I want to take the signal from the spidf output connector on the servo board but have noticed that this connector has 2 signal cables plus sheild.
Connecting up the mm I get approx 2.5 v red -sheild , 5v white -sheild and 2.5v white to red.
I understand that the output level for spidf should be 0.5v.
Will some kind soul tell me which cables I should use and if I need to fit an Lpad to drop the voltage to the correct level.
Thanks in advance,
