Hi,
You may have a bad cable. Go pick up one of those cables designed for iPods that plugs into the headphone jack on the player, that ends with two RCA plugs. If that cures it, the other cable was bad.
The BEST way to do it though, is if there is a docking station made for your player that has RCA connectors on the back, so that you can use normal RCA cables.

I have an old Denon stereo receiver DRA - 565 RD. Do you know how I can connect my iPhone to the receiver to play music from my iPhone?


You need a 3,5mm male stereo connector to RCA male jacks (see attached image). Plug the 3.5mm jack to your iPhone and the RCA jacks (red & white or red & black) to your Denon Receiver's CD in or Tape 1 or 2 PB (at the rear of the unit). Then select the input where you plugged the RCA to (front of receiver: CD / Tape-2 / Tape-1). Hope this will help. 25303676-z0ul41frrnrex4ege2epffps-1-0.jpg

How do I connect an mp3 player to a receiver?


Simplest way: headphone jack cable to 2x phono/RCA and connect to one of the audio inputs.

Better quality: Good MP3 player dock (if available) and then connect either digital out or analogue stereo out to the receiver.

Cannot play my ipod through my technics amp


You would need a mini jack to stereo rca wire. Insert the mini jack to your Ipod's headphones, then plug the stereo rca to your amp inputs. If it's a receiver, plug into any of the inputs (aux, tape etc) except "phono or turntable", then switch to respected input on the receiver. Be sure all volumes on both units are down during this process, then gradually turn up both volume to normal level.

I have a Kenwood KR-V6080 amp and I have tried playing a Sony MP3 player through the phono and cd sockets on the amp but the sound is not good. I have also tried to change the settings on the MP3 player...


"Not good". What does that mean?

It SHOULD work. Look at the MP3 player's volume controls.

Any audio device that has a headphone output can be adapted to feed an RCA cable pair for standard stereo to any audio device with a standard RCA input (except "PHONO"). Get a cable like the one described here: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10218&cs_id=1021804&p_id=665&seq=1&format=2
and connect it into any available analog input EXCEPT "Phono".

I want to connect an iPod to my Marantz SR 5600, what type of cord do I need?


You need a jack-2cinch (differen name is jack to 2 RCA) cable. Jack goes to your iPod's phones output, cinch/RCA to amplifier (connect it to CD or DVD analog section at the back). While playing set volume to 50% to avoid distorted sound. This way you can connect any MP3 player to your amplifier.

How do I hook up my ipod to my pioneer vsx d409 ?


The best way is to use a 3,5mm stereo jack to 2 RCA cable like this:
technical114_34.jpg
You can easily find one like this at your local audio/electronics shop or buy one on line. You have to connect the RCA at any free stereo input at the back of your Pioneer (like aux or cd). Take a look at this picture:
technical114_35.jpg
After this you can use the 3.5mm stereo jack for connecting not only your ipod but every mp3 player or other device has an earphone jack. Just plug the 3.5mm jack at the earphone jack and rise the volume at the portable device up to the middle of the volume range and set your Pioneer input selector at the stereo input that you connect the 2 RCA before (aux or cd)

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

How do I connect my samsung mm-c330 micro hi-fi system to my computer


If you want to amplify the sound you will probably need an adapter. You will use the audio output jack on your computer to an input jack on your receiver. There are usually several different inputs on a receiver but most use RCA phono plugs. The best choice input jack one the receiver is the one that says "AUX". You can buy the adapter cord at any Radio Shack. You will need to be sure to ask for a 1/8 inch stereo phone plug to two RCA phono plugs. This will split the stereo signal into left and right channels for your receiver.

Trying to sort aux-in


Hi,
as you do not mention the model I have to guess that your player has a aux-in on phono (or RCA) jack. If you want to plug the iPod just buy a "Twin phono to 3.5mm stereo jack cable".
You can find in many superstores or Maplin.
