ipod to UCD Balanced
I still have some UCD180ST modules lying around and would like to make a iPod "dock" with them. The only thing I´m not quite sure about is how to connect the iPod output to the balanced inputs of the modules in a simple way avoiding too much connectors/adapters etc.
First method would be a cable (6 core). 2 times hot, cold and ground from the two amps soldered directly to a 3,5mm stereo jack. 2 x Hot to left and right out, 2 x cold and 2 x ground to iPod ground.
This should work but is not really elegant.
The second method would be to put a female 3,5mm connector isolated in the chassis (of the stereo amp), connect it in the way described above and use a short run (15-20cm) of cable with two 3,5mm jacks to connect the iPod.
This way the ground and cold connections (4) would run for a short run of cable through the same core.
Would this be possible or would this give hum or other problems?
