SOURCE: wireing

I believe that this model Sony amp includes High Level inputs. Those allow you to connect the normal speaker wires coming out of the factory stereo to the amp. If for some reason it doesn't include the inputs you can buy a high level to low lever converter that will give you rca from the factory unit.

SOURCE: Owner of a Sony CMT-HP7 Shelf System - how to hook up iPod Nano??

Someone already put the user manual up on Fixya;

Looks like you need a short 3.5mm jack to twin RCA lead. The RCAs will be colour coded red and white, so your mom can put them in the right sockets on the back of the Sony, with the 3.5mm plugging into the iPod. There'll be an option on the remote or the front panel to select 'Audio In' or 'Aux in' or similar.

SOURCE: When I hook up the RCA cables from the Phono to minimal volume

PHONO requires a phono-equipped receiver, which the STR-DE598 appears to NOT be. AUX will not work because it requires Line Level inout. Traditional old-school turntables put out a very tiny drastically-altered signal which needs preamplification to raise it and flatten it out for use by downstream circuitry. THAT is the job of the PHONO section in a preamp or receiver. You need to find a phono preamp or an older receiver to run the TT through. You could slave it to the STR through its AUX then.

I have a JBL MR 15 does this radio have a place in the back to plug in an ipod adapter. I think it is an Aux input RCA Jack The radio is on my boat and not near for me to look at it.


if it has aux input rca's, then go to an electronics or car audio shop and buy a "stereo rca to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter cable" This will then plug into the headphone jack on the ipod.

Hook up an iPod to Beosound2000 system??


There is an Aux input on the B & O. you can connect the I-pod to through this input. You will need a 3.5mm phono to 2 RCA cable connector. The phono jack goes to the I-pods headphone socket and the RCA ( Red & White ) jacks goes to the B & O Aux input.bobhifi_28.jpg

How do you connect an Ipod throught the aux input?


what type of input does your radio have? if its a head phone jack input just get a headphone to headphone jack wire from radioshack and plug one end into you ipod and the other into the radio, set your radio to aux and your ipods volume to 70-80%. if its an rca input, it exactly the same but you will need an rca to headphone jack wire. if its usb, just use the cable that came with you ipod.

Haveing trouble hearing sound when I have my IPod connected


You need a AI Net cable or Speed Cable... It plugs into the back of the radio (looks like a circle with holes), and the other end can have a "Y" plug (headphone jack and iPod flat jack). The headphone jack for sound, the flat jack to charge he iPod while listening. I just bought mine on Crutchfield.com for $29.99. With the discount code: 3A156 you can get standard shipping free. The item # is: 127ICALPA and it's named "PAC iPod Adapter for Alpine".

IPOD ADAPTOR


you have to buy the ipod connection kit to pioneer, but if your deck have RCA input at the back..all you need is Y cable 2 (RCA male - 35mm jack)

RCA will be connected to DECK, 35 mm jack to your ipod.

to use your ipod...change the input setting on your deck to AUX (auxillary) most deck have this for CD Changer connection

Good Luck

Aux input on Soundstorm amp


If the amplifiers have RCA jacks, you can use an adapter cable to go from the headphone jack to the RCA inputs on the amp. If you're in the U.S., Radio Shack will likely have what you need.

Hook up IPOD


I am not sure if the model you have supports iPod control, but if it has an input jack in the front, you can use a cable from the headphone jack into the Aux jack in the front of the stereo and when there is a cable inserted into the jack you will be able to select Aux with the source button.
The other option is to get a kit installed at your car stereo place that will allow you to connect it via 3rd party hardware.

Hello,

Use a headphone to AUX cable from the source or another electronics store and plug it into the AUX jacks beside the headphone jack.

Auxilary RCA inputs have no volume control


Your problem stems from the fact that the CDA-7892 is not equipped with an RCA aux-input jack. If you're plugged into RCA connectors at the back of the head unit, they're outputs, not inputs. The sound you hear is just feeding back through the outputs and into the head unit's amplifier. If you want to play your iPod through this head unit, you need to purchase either the auxiliary input adapter (KCA-121B) or iPod adapter (KCA-420i).
