Re: iPod connection

Yes there is. You need to purchase a 1/8 inch jack (standard headphone input) to RCA (red and white) cord, they usually run approx. $20 - $25). Once you have that what you'll need to do is plug the RCA cord into the back of the stereo (corresponding colors, red into the red, white into the white) and set the function to Game (MD). You can do this by pressing the button on your remote or by pressing the function button on the main consul until you see MD on the monitor, press play on your ipod and you're good to go!

You can buy a cable that will connect the output of your mp3 device to the input jack of your stereo at most electronic stores. Make sure its stereo. Very simple to do.

Hw do I hook an Ipod up to a Panasonic SA-AK20?I plugged it in the headphone jack,pressed AUX and Im not hearing anything

Have you raised up the nolume at the iPod? It has to be about 60-70% of the full volumein order to provide enough audio signal to your Panasonic.
Try it and in case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

Just wondering if there is any way to hook an iPod (actually my iPhone 3GS) to my stereo (SA-AK57) somehow to play my songs??

only in stereo, there is not digital interface for this sound system, you need a 3.5mm jack to RCA lead (Head phone connector on end and a red and white phono connectors on the other) these connect to the Aux 1 or Aux 2 inputs on the rear of your stereo.

Re-check your usb cable, try to use the usb cable specified for use only by RCA RS2664b to connect to your ipod, if it doesn't work use the usb cable specified for your ipod because differrent appliances have diffrnt cable configurations.. ;-) hope this advice help you..... good day!

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
