But probably it's easier to plug the wire from cd drive to a sound card?
That way one should get a mixer's separate "CD" volume regulator at no cost...

But sure this makes impossible the any processing like this:

    cdda2wav <args> | tee /some/file > /dev/dsp

Either way has its advantages and drawbacks.
