Question about Sony MHC-GX470 Shelf System

1 Answer

No input jacks for sattelite radio

I RECENTLY PURCHASED A XM SKYFI3 FOR MY CAR AS WELL AS FOR MY HOME STEREO.  THE DEVICE WORKS IN ITS CAR  DOCK AS IT SHOULD.  HOWEVER, IN READING THE DIRECTIONS FOR THE HOME DOC DEVICE IT STATES THAT THE FM MODULATOR (THE PART THAT TRANSMITS THE SIGNAL TO  THE STEREO) WILL WORK IN THE DOCK BUT ONLY WHEN IT IS DIRECTLY CONNECTED TO THE STEREO VIA ITS INPUT JACKS FOUND IN THE BACK OF MOST STEREOS.  TO MY DISMAY I FOUND THAT MY STEREO, THE MHC-GX70, DOES NOT HAVE THESE INPUT JACKS ON THEM.  IS THERE ANYTHING I COULD DO OR AN ADAPTOR THAT I COULD BUY AND USE TO RECTIFY THE PROBLEM ?  A CO-WORKER OF MINE TELLS ME THAT ALL I HAVE TO DO IS BUY NEW SPEAKERS?   IS THERE A SOLUTION TO THIS PROBEM?

You need a system that has input jacks. This is not something that can be added without some major re-designing, as like in adding the feature. It is more complicated than it looks!

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.

Where is the aux jack for the RCA RS 2620 bookshelf stereo?


The Aux audio L/R input jacks are below the On/Off button on the left side of the front of the stereo's main unit. The headphone jack is just below the input jacks. You will probably need an adapter to split the stereo output from the Blackberry (probably a 3.5 mm stereo jack) to the L/R jacks.

Radio Shack has the manual for the RCA RS2620 here: http://support.radioshack.com/support_audio/doc72/72312.pdf .

I hope this helps.

How to get a new Microphone I purchased to work


your stereo most likely has an audio input in the back. 1 red and 1 white. It's usually labeled "AUX". Go to your local electronics shop, (radio sh**k) and get an rca audio cable where on one side it's 2 cables (red & white), and on the other side it looks like a headphone jack input or female Your microphone should plug into that side, unless your mic has the big jack. In that case just get the adapter to go from big to small. The red and white part of the cable will go into the AUX input on the back of your radio. And that's it!
just press the AUX mode of your stereo and your mic should work.

How can I connect it to the "Front Games and mp3 Inputs


Leah, if you go to wal-mart, you can buy an adapter cord that will plug into the headphone jack of your mp3 player and then plug into your stereo to play your mp3's through it. It looks like a headphone jack on both ends. Cost is approx 3-5 dollars.
