THe easiest way to hook an iPod or any other personal audio player to almost any audio receiver is to pick up a cable having a stereo miniplug (like the plug on your earbuds) on one end, and two RCA plugs on the other end. You should be able to get this cable from almost any electronics or discount store for under $10. The miniplug goes in the iPod's earphone jack, and the RCA plugs connect to an unused input on your receiver. Inputs marked "AUX" or "CD" are a good choice, or even a "TAPE" input. Set the iPod to about 3/4ths volume and adjust the receivers controls for desired volume.

How can I connect my I pod Touch to my Denon AVR 1803 receiver?


The best way to connect an older IPod or other MP3 player to the AVR-1803 is to use a 3.5 mm (M) to RCA audio cable. This will work for audio on all IPods (and video on some of the older IPods). Here's an example: http://www.amazon.com/3-5mm-Audio-Video-Cable-iPod/dp/B000STBSU4 . Connect the 3.5 mm end to the headphone jack; the RCA plugs go into one of the AVR-1803 RCA inputs.

For some IPods, try a connector like this: http://www.amazon.com/Cables-Unlimited-iPod-Connector-Cable/dp/B000CBFVXS . This connects to the docking port on the IPod.

I hope this helps.

I have a denon avr 2000 dsp and want a manual which nobody has and I want to hook up my ipod classic. There isn't any AUX front or rear and I don't have a dock.


To hook up your ipod, get a 3.5mm to rca cable and use your ipod's headphone jack. Just don't turn the volume way up on the ipod otherwise the input signal may to at too high a level for the receiver.

IPOD hook up to receiver


The problem is the phono hookup, which is not a standard line-level input. Phono is only appropriate for a turntable (record player)


Plug the ipod into any other input, and you'll be all set.

If this helps, be sure to hit the "thumbs up" for me!

I have a Denon AVR-1500 Reciever and I would like to connect my iPod to see if I can drive my home speakers from my iPod, the aux jacks and other choices of input jacks do not seem to accept the formatted...


How are you trying to connect your ipod to the Denon? i.e. What connector, or cables are you trying to use?

If nothing else work, you could try and use the headphone output of the ipod to connect to your receiver. ( Cable required would be stere pin to RCA stereo out). The volume control of the ipod will then become the gain control.

No matter what I do, I can't hook up my Ipod dock to the Denon 397 receiver I just bought.


The receiver is the DRA 397 model. I don't have a solution yet. If anyone does, I'd appreciate it!!
