Re: want to hook up an IPOD to professional sound...
Shouldn't really need any equipment. You can use a RCA to 1/4" phono adapters.
One for the right and one for left.
If you mixing console already has RCA input then you don't need an adapter.
Make sure you set the volume level on your ipod around 1/4 to 1/2 way up and then turn up the channels your piped into. If the faders don't give you enough gain (volume) then turn up the ipod I bit more. Just watch your imput signal and make sure your not clipping or the sound will be distorded.

<p>The superior audio quality thanks to the Kenwood stereo
system is as good as any on the market. However, many of Kenwood audio receivers
contain no iPod connection port. Even the business hubs of high-end
entertainment that interface with the computer via USB cannot provide
connectivity to an iPod. But that does not mean you cannot high-quality audio
through your stereo Kenwood iPod. <br />
<p>1. Put your Kenwood stereo. Connect devices with the stereo
turned on may lead to spikes in volume that can damage the speakers and even
your ears. Turn up the stereo, so you can use the set of connectors on the back
to see. <br />
<p>2. Connect the end of 3.5 mm 3.5 mm to RCA cable for the
headset from your iPod. If you do not have a cable 3.5mm to RCA, you can buy
one of the sound equipment stores or electronics stores like Radio Shack. <br />
<p>3. Connect the RCA end to your cable 3.5mm to RCA in an
available port on the back of your Kenwood stereo. Put your Kenwood stereo, so
you can access the buttons on the front. Turn the sound and select the channel
of your iPod is connected. <br />
<p>4. Test the connection. Lower the volume on the Kenwood
stereo and start a track playing on your iPod that you can recognize. Turn your
volume until you play the iPod through the stereo to listen. If you hear no
sound, check the "Monitor CD2/TAPE2" is active, and "Mute"
is off <br />
YES you can!! Touch the "video" button on Jensen, theyou MUST use your iPod to findthe video you want to play on the screen and SET YOUR iPOD SETTING TO "TV OUT"!! I have the same decand iPod and it's GREAT!! Just remember that on videos, set the iPod to TV OUT, and control the video from the iPod!!
The problem is that your iPod adapter does not have a authentication
chip in it. Apple decided to go a new route with the new iPods. They
now require a authentication chip if you want to get audio and video
out of the iPod using the dock connector. So you won't be able to hook
up your iPod to your system using your current equipment. You can
either hope that the maker of your equipment comes out with a new iPod
cable that has a authentication chip (they have to pay Apple for this
so if the company is cheap then you are probably out of luck) or just
stick with your older 5G/5.5G iPod.
The player has a built in safety device which only allows it to turn up so high. It help to avoid burning out your equip ment. Best way is to put sound on one device 3/4 ways up and then use the other device for adjusting the volume from there.
For sound in one channel; either there is a wire unplugged or not getting a good contact, or the player is set for mono instead of stereo
