3 amp fuse would be plenty for a CD player, I wouldn't worry.

Check the specs on the amp you intend to connect to it. If it draws more than 1kW then you may want to consider a larger fuse. Otherwise stick to what you have.

The fuse in the plug is there to protect the cable not the connected equipment.

So factor that in if your changing up but a cd player is not going to pull any current thats damaging to the cables unless it goes seriously faulty which is unlikely due to its own fuse or protection system.

Or the cable is seriously thin which is unlikely but worth checking
