Connecting CD player without rca outputs to stereo receiver

I have a cd player I would like to connect to my receiver so I can listen to it with my new speakers and receiver setup. The only issue is, my CD player doesn't have rca outputs, only the clips for the speaker wire attached to the included speakers. I figured all I had to do was convert speaker wire to rca, and I used these:

But, when I plug both wires into the receiver rca inputs, there is a super loud hissing. The hissing stops though, if I take out one of the cables or the other. Basically, both of them being plugged in at once causes hissing that drowns everything out. I don't really know why this is happening, any solutions?
 
I don't have time to browse through the amazon thing but I suspect they are NOT what you need. The adapter you need, has to decrease the signal from speaker level to line level, and I suspect these very convenient (snicker) adapters don't do that.

Does this CD player even have a headphone-out? that maybe the easier and better solution, u would just need a stereo 1/8" miniature to RCA cable.

Okay, so what's really my best option? I spent enough on the cd player when I got it to where I really don't want to get rid of it this soon. I'd prefer to use my new speakers with the cd player, without having to literally take the speaker wire out of my receiver and connect it to the cd player.
 
Then, hacking your stereo is the only way - find the point of the schematic where analogue signal will go into volume control, and attach RCA line outputs there. If your stereo uses analogue volume control with a potentiometer, it should not be that hard.

Or, You can get speaker A-B switch to control whether your speakers will be connected to the receiver, or the stereo.
