Attach IPod to my car stereo

Without actually attaching it.

According to the manual at sony's web site, the sony cdx gt520 deck does indeed use RCA style hook up cables.

If your Sony has female RCA Aux inputs, then you can use that going headphone out of MP3 player to the RCA inputs. You won't be able to view or controll any other player from the head unit except an iPod.

SOURCE: how do you work the Aux input?

when something is plugged into the jack (mp3 player ect) there should work when you cycle through the options of the deck such as cd, radio, There should be an aux option when it is plugged in.

How do I connect my ipod/iphone to my technics hi fi/stereo? What cables do I need? Susan


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 one labeled "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 one labeled "Phono".

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).

and connect it into any available analog input EXCEPT "Phono".

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

Ipod input for sa-eh760


You can plug the Ipod into the mic input , to do test recording. But the result wont be great.

To listen the Ipod in your stereo you should plug the Ipod into the Auxiliary input on the stereo.

Naturally you do not need any dvd.

Here is the adapter: 1.5M 3.5mm Male to Male AV Audio RCA Y Adapter

How to hookup an IPOD to a pioneer avh-p6500 car stereo


If your car stero has a stereo audio input connector then you can plug a cable in the headphone on the IPod and the other end of the cable into the stereo audio input on the car stereo.
If you don't have an stereo input on the car stereo then you can buy a FM transmitter that is powered by the car's cigarette socket, connect the IPod to the transmitter, switch on the car radio and tune it to the FM station that matches the FM transmitter.
You can now listen to your IPod from the car radio.

The simplest solution would be connect the headphone jack on the iPod to the stereo audio inputs (RCA) to your home theater. So you need a cable that is "stereo phono mini jack" on one end (into iPod headphone jack), and then Y-splits into two RCA connectors on the other end (into L and R audio in on the receiver).

The expensive Apple-endorsed Monster-branded version can be found at http://store.apple.com/us/product/TN983LL/A#overview for $30, but you can get the same thing at Radio Shack for $7.

Set the iPod volume to less than ~80% and then control the volume using your receiver. You have to use the iPod menu to select music.

MD/CD Changer Control Options


press source button repeatedly to select "CD" or "MD" be aware that in order to connecting Ipod to a car stereo you will need to use an extension cable with 3.5 mm stereo connectors on each end to connect iPod to your car stereo system's aux input, or use a cassette adapter if your car stereo doesn't have a sound input jack. Either of these items can be purchased at stores that sell car stereo accessories. good luck!
