I plan on getting a receiver in the near future - and obviously I will use an optical cable to hook up my cd player. I do use my ipod/itunes a lot for music - so is it worth it to buy one of those ipod adapters for a receiver - wouldn't anything that adapts to the 1/4" headphone jack be just like using basic AV cords?


Let me know, thanks.

I think he means headphone out to stereo line in - aux inputs or other


There is a minijack-> stereo RCA adapter, but I also think the general consensus is that this method is noisy

It really depends on if you want to be able to control the I-pod from the receiver and charge the I-pod.


I bought my wife a car stereo with an I-pod dock, it's kind of slick as the song title and info scrolls in the stereo display and the stereo has full control of the I-pod so we just leave the pod in the glove compartment.


If you do not care about stuff like that then a simple 1/8 inch stereo to RCA patch cord is all you need.

So are you in Canada, eh? (not to be misinterpreted that "stupid" questions come from Canada or that this even is a stupid question).

what you need is a 3.5mm to RCA cable. Can't speak as to whether the dock will sound any better. Personally I wirelessly stream my itunes from my laptop to the receiver using an apple airport router, which connects to my receiver using the cable as mentioned.

That is a real cheap-o, they have some better ones under the Dayton brand.
