you just need a 1/8" or 3.5mm cable male-to-male
i.e. google " 1/8" stereo mini cord " or " 1/8" mini cable "
If you care anything about sound quality you need to dock your ipod and then connect the dock to the 1/8" jack in the console. and gold is better. you only need a 12" length.
my third gen came with a dock.
on the back of the dock is a small jack (1/8") which is not amplified (like the headphone jack is) which when run through your AUX has MUCH better sound quality than the headphone jack. BTW you don't use the iPod volume control when it is in the dock-just use car stereo controls
Good find CL9K24NJ!!
u r right there will be no problem with using the headphone jack.
But on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 is best) my rating of sound quality for the various connections are:
iPod headphone jack to AUX jack(TSX 06) at volume <12 =6
iPod headphone jack to AUX jack(TSX 06) at volume 20+ =4
iPod dock or adapter LINE OUT jack to AUX jack(TSX 06) at volume 0-30 =9.9
I just realized that instead of the dock a charger adapter (which I own [MonsterC]but is packed in storage) is much simpler solution for the connection for optimal sound quality....it is the same as using a dock since it is not amplified.
I think the sound is good (not the best) but it comes in real clear. I think if your looking for something cheap and has good sound I would go with the audio cable from Radio Shack and if you need that perfect sound then there is other options out there.
