Re: Ipod Connection cable to Stereo Receiver?
A phono input is designed for EXTREMELY low voltage output (average of .5 millivolt) - a headphone output into a phono input would yield nothing but distortion. A headphone out should go into (with the iPod's volume set to no more than a quarter-of-maximum) a LINE input only.

Ooops, I knew there was something different about phono inputs but I didn't try it with ours either. I just know that when I tried it, you had to set the iPod's volume just right or it was too "noisy", if I recall correctly. Problem was, I could never get it to play at a nice, loud volume.
Similar issue occurs when people try and connect them via the headphone output to their car stereo. I bought a proper interface for our Odyssey that uses the iPod's bottom connector. It works perfectly this way (for one, it disables the iPod's own volume control) and it also keeps it charged.
