Connect Iphone To Old Receiver


Recommended Posts

I want to connect my iPhone to an old home theater receiver in my garage I am sure there is lots of ways to do this just trying to think of what would be best.

 

I have an iPhone with no headphone jack. Not a problem I currently put it on a dock with a speaker. That dock has a 3.5mm out that I should be able to convert into something that would work as an input to the receiver?

Here is the back of the receiver, its an old ONKYO that I had set up as a home theater many years ago. Its been collecting dust in the basement and I still have all of the speakers so I thought, hey I could really jam out in the man cave with some good speakers if I can get everything hooked up correctly

 

I could go 3.5mm to rca (red and white) and I think that would get me stereo and not mono?

 

Or could I go 3.5mm to digital optical or 3.5mm to coaxial? See all my options circled in red below?

ok I got it figured out, not sure its the best solution but it works.

 

I thought the 3.5mm jack on the jbl speaker was an output, but its an input so completely scrapped that. I was hoping to go that route so it would charge my phone at the same time.

 

So instead I opted for this option instead:

 

 

It works and I have left and right stereo and its not mono. It sounds ok but I may splurge for a 3.5mm to  digital input cable and see if its worth it.
