Kevin,You could pick up an inexpensive Berringer mixer for about 50 of our earth pounds. That would give you 2 mic inputs, and 2 stereo inputs. The stereo inputs are achieved via 2 pairs of phone jacks known as quarter inch jacks, so you may well need a bunch of jack to R C A fono adapters.
I note in your original message that you also want to connect a third input device, in this case, get yourself a 2-way switch connect the cd player to 1 input, second cassette deck into the second, and the output back to the mixer which also has the first deck in the first input. There are obviously many alternatives for configuring your audio players. When you look for mixers that support three or more stereo inputs, the price for some reason gets a little silly, the manufacturers seem to increase the number of Microphone inputs first, and line-in inputs next in line.
The splitter route is okay, but watch out for signal level changes as the impeedance drops when the second device is connected. The berringer and macki mixers have a reasonable signal to noise ratio, and you may find having hardware controls for volume, ballance, bass treble and some mid band attenuation usefull for handling tapes of differing output levels.
Doubtless there are even cheaper solutions, and you need to ask arround a little.
