Thumbs up Externial Audio Input thru Stock Stereo?

OK, some time ago I thought I saw someone post how they took at stock (non factory upgraded stereo) for their new AS and modified it to accept an external audio source (such as MP3 player or laptop) via RCA jacks. I have a 2005 19' CCD with the regular Sony head/single disk player and speakers, and would love to know what I could do to get my PC or MP3 player to play though the Sony head and speakers.

Any suggestions?

Kevin

I'll bet if you got one of the young guys at Circuit City to look it over, they would have the problem solved in a snap. like asking your 12 year old neighbor kid to fix the computer. NO PROBLEM MON!

Sound Options

I'm not familiar with the Sony model AS is using, but here's a few thoughts. (1) If it has an FM tuner, there are a number of products that will hookup to your player and send the signal to an FM station (some preset, others can be set by you). They work very well. (2) If there's external audio inout on the rear of the Sony, you're good to go. Sounds like the Sony does not have a cassette tape deck - if it does, you can use a cassette tape adapter to play into the unit.

Kevin.

I know the answer to this, as I wanted to do the same exact thing.

You need a Sony XA-300. I got mine from Crutchfield. Under a hundred bucks, as I recall.

Hope this helps.

Road Trip

Kevin,

We use a Griffin Road Trip. It is designed for the IPod, but has some "extra features". The FM Transmitter portion of the product can disconnect from the main body, and can be powered by your USB port. So we hook it right up to our laptop (works PC or Mac), it draws power from the laptop, and is a fairly powerful transmitter (works throughout our 25 foot Safari).

All,

Thanks for everyone's input and ideas!! (I'm ashamed to say I am an engineer that can't figure out the stereo!!)

I think the Sony XA-300 is the best way to go, so I can not only hook up MP3 or DVD, but my future DSS reciever....

Thanks guys!

I bought and installed the XA-300 AUX adapter so I couls use my iPod, and I was able to install it on our first campout in less than 5 minutes. It works perfectly, and the future expansion possibilities are welcomed. At $99, it was cheaper than buying a new stereo with AUX in capabilities. I'll snap a picture today and post it.
