Turn Your iPod into a Portable Stereo

Tired of listening through headphones? Turn your iPod into a boom box.

The iPod is a great portable audio device. We all know that. But sometimes you want to listen to music without (gasp!) headphones. With a simple cable, you can hook up your iPod to a boom box or stereo. And, with the addition of a couple products, your iPod can become the boom box. Imagine, a boom box with full access to your entire digital library and the small size and portability of the iPod.

Connecting Your iPod to Your Stereo

The easiest way to connect your iPod to an external speaker is by buying a headphone-jack-to-RCA audio cable from an electronics store such as RadioShack. Plug the cable into your iPod headphone jack (or your iPod dock if you have one) and then plug the RCA audio jacks into your stereo receiver. Now, all the music you have on your iPod can be played on your home stereo. The sound quality is surprisingly good. You can also plug your iPod into your boom box this way.
