    Just a quick, simple question -I think.

    What are the inputs on the back of a Concert II system for an iPod? Are there any simple phono inputs, or is it a more complicated arrangement?

    It looks like a series of small squares, about 6 long, in two rows on top of each other. I think this is a standard car audio connection.

    Is it possible to buy a cable that will connect the iPod (via the 3.5 mm jack socket) to the stereo?

    I'm trying to connect it on the cheap ie. without buying an ice>Link. I have an iTrip, but the sound quality isn't great.

    I suppose if your headunit has those red and white connectors (Cinch/RCA) on the back you could try to use one of those cables with Cinch/RCA on one end and the headphone type connection on the other. You would have no control over the iPod with the HU though. Not sure about sound quality.

    Popeye - with the ice->Link you don't HAVE to buy the cradle you can just get the cable. I found the iTrip is completely WOEFUL in London because there literally is not one frequency that is completely devoid of radio signal. Outside of London, say in Cornwall, I have managed to get a decent transmission but still squelchy. Funny because it worked fine when I lived in Los Angeles.
    Check out the following links for ice->Link info:
