Default Iphone (MP2 Player) Hookup

Hi,
This is a very easy question, but I wasn't sure if it was possible.
I have a Luxman R--117 receiver I've took out of storage. It's been idle 15 years or so, well before the digital age hit mainstream. How do you hookup the iphone (Ipod) to play as an component. I barely even use CDs anymore so I wanted to use my iphone. thanks

Something like this would work:

Line Out RCA x 2 Phono Cable for iPhone 3GS & IPods | eBay

This will give you 'line-out' from the iPhone.

Or, any 3.5mm stereo jack to 2 RCA cable that you would normally use to connect a PC to a stereo. Just plug it into the headphone jack.

Doesn't the headphone jack go through the iphone's amp? I just read this, because I saw your solution as well. I appreciate the response very much please don't misunderstand (the proverbial gift horse in the mouth)

It does. Sonics improve (at least on my Nano) when i dig out my docl which provides a line out (althou most times i'm still using the headphone jack). The biggest improvement to be made is to ensure that only lossless files get onto your iPhone/iPod.

Right, about the ALAC files, but the only obvious drawback is space.

How big is your iPod? Mine is 2 GB, i put AIFF files on it, i still have a days worth of tunes.

Quality vrs quantity. If you are playing MP3, losses thru the headphone outpit are the least of your worries.

without top shelf headphones the difference between ALAC and 320kb mp3 is likely to be pretty minimal actually IMO

Even with just stock earbuds, every single kid i've had listen to my iPod can instantly hear the difference (granted, the standard 128 or 256 AAC).
