You can do this a couple of ways, depending on the model of iPod.
1. Almost every iPod has an 1/8" earphone jack. Almost every Receiver has RCA input jacks. At Radio Shack, or any store with an electronics section, ask them for an cable with the 1/8" earphone plug on one end and stereo RCA jacks on the other.
Plug the RCA jacks into the receiver, taking note of the name of the input (Aux, iPod, Tape, etc) and plug the other end into the iPod. Set your receiver for the input you're connected to and press Play on your iPod. Enjoy music.
2. From the Apple Store, or any iPod dealer, purchase an iPod Dock for your particular model. Ask the same friendly folks for an audio connection cable and do the same as above for the Receiver end. On the iPod end, just set the iPod into the dock and press Play.

Will this receiver accomodate an iPod player? Thanks, Byron Nimocks


It may not take the iPod directly if it doesn't have a dock built in, but you can always connect the iPod to an available input with a suitable cable. You'll need a cable with a plug to fit the iPod headphone jack (a 1/8-inch stereo plug) at one end, and probably RCA plugs at the receiver end. Radio Shack sells one so you can see what you're looking for. If you have an iPod dock, they often have audio output jacks for connecting to your receiver. You may need a cable with RCA plugs on both ends.

I just want to fix my ipod on it


I'm glad to provide the instructions to connect an iPod to the Sony Receiver. Depends upon the model, it is possible that the iPod can be connected to a Sony Receiver using a Digital Media Port Adapter. Purchase the Digital Media Port separately, connect the iPod to the Digital Media Port Adapter and then connect it to the Receiver. However, some Receivers are not compatible for connecting Digital Media Port Adapter. In that case, you can connect the Headphone output of the iPod to the Aux/Line input on the Receiver.
Please provide the model # of the Receiver that you're using so that I can provide more information about the specific connections. Thanks for understanding.

How do i connect an ipod to my sony str-de310 receiver


Connecting to a home stereo
  1. For most home stereo systems, connect iPod to your amplifier's sound input using a 3.5 mm mini stereo to RCA adapter cable.
  2. Adjust the volume on iPod to less than half to prevent overdriving your amplifier. Adjust the listening volume using your stereo's controls.

    Note: Depending on your stereo, iPod may need to be set higher than half in order to get a proper volume through external speakers.

I have hk3385 receiver and Ipod Touch 4G. I have the cable to connect them. Where do I hook the cable on the receiver (or do I?) and which buttons will play the Ipod music. No video, just music


The manual suggests that you use "A / V 3" (audio / video input 3) for your iPad / iPod audio input. These are the RED and WHITE jacks on the front lower right hand side of the receiver. The YELLOW jack is for composite VIDEO, and need not be connected for "audio only" programs.

Turn the volume on the iPod / iPad to MINIMUM (assuming the receiver volume is at a "normal" setting for the radio, CD, etc.). Connect the cable between the iPod / iPad and the A / V 3 RED and WHITE audio jacks. Select A / V Input 3 on the receiver. Find a song you want to listen to and select PLAY in the iPod / iPad. Slowly adjust the volume on the iPod / iPad up to a comfortable level. If there is distorted sound, adjust he receiver and iPod / iPad volumes up and down as needed. Generally, neither should be set very low or very high.

You can download the owners manual here.

I hope this helps & good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks!

How to I use the stock radio amp to run an ipod?


Hi,
You can use any of the following methods
  1. Connecting the iPod via headphone jack
    All you need is a simple Y cable, which is available from any home-electronics store. Connect the small plug to the headphone output of your iPod--or any portable audio player. Then connect the red and white RCA-style plugs to the matching inputs on the back of your stereo receiver or boombox.

  2. Connecting the iPod via iPod dock
    To connect using the iPod dock, you first need to purchase an iPod dock accessory. Using the same type of Y cable, connect the small plug to the matching jack on the rear of the iPod dock. Then, plug the red and white RCA-style plugs to the matching inputs on the back of your stereo receiver or boombox. This method provides a line-level connection that maintains a volume level to your stereo system and allows the iPod to recharge.

  3. Connecting the iPod via wireless FM transmitter
    You can also connect your iPod to your stereo wirelessly. You'll need to purchase a compatible wireless FM transmitter--there are several available--and connect it your iPod. Once your transmitter is connected, simply tune any nearby radio to the correct frequency, and you'll be listening to your own iPod-powered mini radio station.

I have a denon ipod dock and a harman/kardon receiver. Can I connect the dock to the receiver?


To plug the dock into the receiver to supply power and interface with the iPod you would have to have one with a built in iPod. Most receivers will not do that, the most common way to connect an iPod to a receiver is using a 3.5mm to RCA cable. You don't even need the dock to do this, you can plug the iPod directly in. You can find this cable at most electronics shops if you don't want to buy online, like Best Buy or Radioshack.
Make sure you connect the white and the red end of the RCA cable to the correct sockets on your receiver, and the small 3.5mm jack into the iPod or the iPod dock, you have to turn the iPod volume up and select the corresponding input on your receiver. If you plugged the 2 RCA jacks (white & red) into the socket labeled "AUX" or "Video 1" you have to select "AUX" or "Video 1" in order to hear the sound.

Connecting ipod to yamaha A/V receiver


To see video output on your televison, you need one of hte following versions of the Ipod:
  • iPod touch
  • iPhone (software version 1.1.1 or later required)
  • iPod nano (3rd generation)
  • iPod classic
  • iPod (5th generation)
  • iPod with color display (iPod photo)
When you plug the cord into your Audio receiver, the Ipod is only sending audio to the receiver. For your iPod to send video output to your television, you will need to buy an AV cable for your tv. Here is the link to Apple's website where you can view the A/V cables that will allow you to watch video on your television. Here it is
