Re: Connecting MP3 to receiver

There are many products that will transmit to a standard radio receiver, here is one rather fancy example: To find others which are much cheaper, search with mp3 and transmitter. But, make sure it will do what you want before you buy it!

I need directions to connect my mp3 player to my pioneer deh 3700mp car stereo

Assuming that you're not trying to connect an iPod or iPhone, you will need an additional adapter. For your particular unit, that will be a Pioneer CDRB10 Auxiliary input adapter for P-Bus receivers (approximately $40). You'll also need a stereo mini plug to RCA adapter (about $15 for a good one of around 6 ft). You'll plug this adapter into the headphone jack of your MP3 player and the RCA ends of the adapter into the RCA ends of the Pioneer CDRB10. Then for the hard part, you'll need to plug the other end of the Pioneer CDRB10 to the rear of your stereo head unit. That will mean pulling the unit out and doing some fishing so that the wires are hidden and leading to a location where you can functionally attach and detach your MP3 player.

Hi, We have a 18 year old Kenwood stereo which is still working perfectly and would like to plug in the ipod Touch is this possible if so how. Many thanks Nicky

"Plug in" as an iPod interface - not directly. ANYthing 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:
and connect it into any available analog input EXCEPT "Phono".

I imagine the iPod manual speaks to that, too, somewhere.

I have a 10 year old Receiver. I have a DVD player connected and the picture does not display when the receiver is running for a period of time.

This sounds like a thermal issue, meaning after the receiver has been on for a while it gets to warm and then fails. I suspect after 10 years the unit may have accumulated some dust that is not allowing the heat sinks to dissipate heat adequately. I would use compressed air and blow the unit out. Some computer stores have blow stuff in a can that work well. If you have and air compressor, dial it back to 10 psi or so. You will be amazed at how much **** will come out of that unit. Also be carful not to stack anything on top of your receiver. Make sure there are lots of openings around the unit. High temperatures kill electronics.
Hope this helps.

I have a new rca receiver and have it hooked up to my dvd player which works fine. I have it hooked into my tv and Im not getting sesurround through my tv how can I connect to the tv to make it work my tv...

Take a clue from the 10-year old vintage of the TV and the two analog audio cables. It's Dolby Pro Logic Surround at best, not Dolby Surround in the modern, digital, multi-channel sense.

TV's are not the source nor the end of a multi-channel audio chain. Feed this thing a 2-channel source from a Cable Box (into the "TV" jacks), DVD, Video Tape or CD with proper Dolby Surround encoding and will seem to open up the sound field a bit and kick in a little surround effect. It can also simulate a Hall effect and Dolby 3 stereo.

Mp3 connect yamaha rx-v995 ---> muddy sound

Try getting into the configuration menu of the MP3 player and adjust the output controls for external sounds to me like it might be too high and/or the wrong output decoding.

This is not for connecting an MP3 player, but rather for playing MP3-CD's. Using your computer and a CD burner, you can burn a CD with up to about ten hours worth of MP3s on it. The procedure for creating the disc varies depending on your burning software. In Nero, for example, you would select "Music" and then "MP3 Disc" and then select the songs you want to put on the disc. For other software you just select "burn a data disc" and then select the MP3 files you want.

Once you have a CD full of MP3s, put it in the Packard-Bell stereo's CD player, and you will be able to play all the MP3 files that are on the CD. THe advantage, of course, is being able to put ten hours on one CD instead of only 80 minutes.
