Default Balanced Signal Levels- voltages??

What voltages does a CD player with a balanced output provide on that output? Isn't there some kind of standard for this?

Unbalanced output is 2 volts max as a standard for CD player output. I would not be surprised if balanced out was 2 volts peak to peak. Not sure though.

Hi,

professional CD-s have usually standard output (balanced output) level of +4dBm at 600ohms load. This level can be also internally adjustable.
