RE: output matching

You might check the output spec/input specs:

Typically the Output spec lists a Maximum voltage out- so a full tilt signal would cause that 2 volt signal - the cannons going off in the 1812 Overture- Other passages would vary correspondingly....

Input spec - typically it is listed as "minimum input required for full output". Having said this - 150 mV is more like the output from an MC cart - not a Line Level source. It is common for a Pre-amp/receiver to take inputs in the range of 1.5-2 volts for full output [1.5V = 1,500 mV] - most line level sources (Tuners, Tape decks & CD players) have an output in the 1.5-2.0 Volt range.

Lastly- Unless there is a limiter in the input circuit of the receiver (unlikely) you can feed the CD into the Aux input - and you may just not use most of the Volume Pot range...
