I'm trying to connect my cell phone (output = 3.5mm male) to an analog receiver (input = 2RCA male). From what I've read I need a DAC (Digital to Analog Converter). However the DAC's that I've seen have a coaxial or Toslink input. Any suggestions on how to set this up?
OK, I figured out the problem. The cell was connected t the receiver. but I had also connected the cell to the USB of the cable box. That's where the distorted sound was coming from. Unplugged the USB and sound is fine.
Key point is the 3.5mm headphone output level to the AVR is controlled by the phone's volume control, keep this @ about 50%..
Just my $0.05...
I've got the volume at ~30%
The fuzzy sound coming through is sound from whatever channel is playing on the cable box. I also tried to connect to the USB on the TV and got the same issue. Very strange. Oh well, I'll just have to plug the cell into a wall charger.
