One of these will do it. You can find them at Walmart, Best Buy, etc.

If the Topping has a 3.5mm jack, you can also use a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable. readily available at Walmart, Best Buy, etc.

It is an amplifier. It amplifies an audio signal to play on speakers. I have no idea why mp3 is even relevant to mention? Is your friend perhaps in a special ed class?

Yes,Saturnus is right.And it is actually can connect with mp3.The way is:use the mp3 as voise source.Then connect 3.5-RCA with mp3,and the other one connect with the amplifier.It is done without any effort.

According to my experience,this one TOPPING TP21 - NEW TA2021B 2*25W Class T Amp Headphone Amplifier+14V4A AC power adapter.
As the chip is better performance and it with headphone as the price is only $6 more than tp20.So my advise is tp21

I'd recommend the TA2020 based one. Overall better bass performance. But it's actually so close it probably wouldn't matter unless you got seriously good speakers to detect the tiny differences between the 2.
