For just listening, any audio device with a headphone/earbud output can be connected to any available analog Line Level input (except PHONO) with a simple adapter. They don't tell you that in the manual because they want you to purchase expensive accessories like docking stations.

What are connections and connectors for audio output to wireless headset


Hi Richard,

First, you'll need to determine which type of input(s) the wireless headset transmitter has. Most common is the 3.5mm stereo plug designed to slip into the headphone jack of a TV, MP3 player, cell phone, etc. Some transmitters have adapters in the box to allow connecting to the Left and Right channel RCA / phono style jacks found on other components such as CD, DVD, VCR, Stereo receivers / amplifiers, etc.

You'll need to find OUTPUTS of the CD and TV that match the plug on the wireless headset transmitter. If yours doesn't include adapters to go from say the RCA jacks mentioned above - to whatever connector that the transmitter input has - you'll need to go to your local Radio Shack store or similar store to see if they can provide an adapter that will allow you to connect.

Here are a couple plugs / adapters:

Above: A "3.5mm stereo patch cable". Your transmitter may have a cable with an end like this to plug into the TV's headphone jack.




25683604-gy4zxbmnj5ndu14q12lmwneo-2-1.jpg Above: A "3.5mm female stereo jack to RCA stereo male plug" adapter that would allow the top cable to connect to the Left and Right audio output jacks on a typical CD, DVD, etc. device.

These cables / adapters are typically $5 to $10 maximum.

I hope this helps and good luck!

How do I hook up my ipod to my pioneer vsx d409 ?


The best way is to use a 3,5mm stereo jack to 2 RCA cable like this:
technical114_34.jpg
You can easily find one like this at your local audio/electronics shop or buy one on line. You have to connect the RCA at any free stereo input at the back of your Pioneer (like aux or cd). Take a look at this picture:
technical114_35.jpg
After this you can use the 3.5mm stereo jack for connecting not only your ipod but every mp3 player or other device has an earphone jack. Just plug the 3.5mm jack at the earphone jack and rise the volume at the portable device up to the middle of the volume range and set your Pioneer input selector at the stereo input that you connect the 2 RCA before (aux or cd)

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Trying to figure out how to connect the cords for the stereo and woofer i seem to be missing one and can't find the manual


To connect your MP3 player to a stereo simply connect it via a cable that will fit your headphone jack on the MP3 player and splits into two larger prongs on the other. This will allow you to plug into the two ports on the back of your stereo. Bestbuy sells the Hosa Technology 3.5mm TRS-to-Dual RCA Cable for $7.99.

Once you connect the MP3 to the stereo make sure that the settings are also correct. Generally you have to push a button or selector to choose if you want to listen to the CD player, radio, or cassette on your stereo. In the same fashion you need to select Aux In or it may be listed Line In.

We want to know can we put an mp3 player or the like through the original audio gear . if not can you advise us on what we can do . we have the tape deck which is not good now thanks


Hi,

Does you sound system have an input plug (RCA) of audio?

If does you could buy a cable adaptor that have an output of stereo rca. Plug the stereo jack on your mp3 earphone socket and your ready to play!

If your sound system have no audio input. You should buy a 12 volt amplifier, with an out put of 50 watts( Depends upon your clarity and bass boost) or higher! Use your existing speakers and make sure you buy that audio adaptor cable for your mp3 to connect to your brand new amplifier.

Thanks for using Fixya as a problem solver!

Sony XR-C350 Car Stereo - can't use cassette adapter for ipod!


For Sony radios you need an aux Bus adapter called the Sony XA 300. It works with the Bus IN RCA, and there whould also be another plug spot for the Bus power and signal interrupter. That is how the Sony knows to access that port.

Can I plug my MP3 player into the aux. socket on my car radio, with the appropriate cable and play the stored music?


You should be able to do that as long as you have the right cable.

Most of the mp3 players have a "mini-stereo" jack (3.5mm) and some car stereos have the same type of jack for "aux" input, and others car stereos have RCA jacks for the "aux" input.

Even if the jacks are not the same type, you can use an adapter cable that converts the mini-stereo jack to an RCA jack. You can find them at many places like Best Buy, Circuit City or Radio Shack.

Depending on the type of car stereo you have, you would normally press the source button to change between the tuner, cd player, aux or whatever you may have connected to the stereo. You may even have a seperate button to press for the "aux" input.

I hope this was helpful to you, if you need more information just ask, and please give more info on the type of mp3 player and the make and model number of the car stereo.

Buzzing sound and can't open stereo


Again RCA stereos **** for this factor, cheap transformers, replace the transformer and see if that helps as it seems to be the most problem with most RCA systems I've repaired in the past.
