I am trying to setup a couple of iPod docks on the main floor, and run them to my outdated stereo reciever, so I can listen to music through my main surround system.
I have the iPod docks and they have a usb to plug into the wall, and an aux out, to run to the stereo, which is a 3.5mm miniplug.
My stereo has a few rca inputs available.
I would like to do this as cheap as possible and was thinking about making a minijack to RCA wire, that would be around 30ft long.
Im wondering what the cheapest way to make this wire would be, without jeopardizing sound. Can a wire like this run 30ft? I would also like to run it inside the wall, is this a problem?
I also know that I may need some type of small preamp in between the ipod dock, and the main reciever, to boost the signal so that I dont have to crank my stereo and iPod way up to be able to hear it.
If you've taken the time to read this long post, I thank you!
