13.1. Connecting the iPod to a Stereo System

CD players that can play discs of MP3s cost less than $100. But if you have an iPod, you already have a state-of-the-art MP3 player that you can connect to your existing system for under $20.

When connected to a stereo system, the iPod's wide frequency-response range and 60-milliwatt amplifier give it the audio oomph to fill a room. To link the iPod to your stereo, you need the right kind of cable (page 256) and a set of input jacks on the back of your receiver. Most audio systems come with at least one extra set of inputs (after accounting for the CD player, cassette deck, and other common components). Look for an empty AUX jack, like the one shown in Figure 13-1.
