Can someone give me a link with instructions on how to best connect an ipod to a reciever? I got my girlfriend a nano for christmas
You asked for it! This
link is for the Nano dock. Only $29. Then get a good 1/8" (3.5mm for the Canadians) stereo mini plug to 2 RCA female y-adapter like This
. Plug the 1/8" side into the dock and run a pair of male-to-male RCA's
to your receiver. Note: You certainly don't have to spend $47 on the interconnects. Just went to the nearest online store, so to speak.
