To connect your iPod to your home stereo or powered speaker system, you need the right cable to go from your iPod's headphone jack or, even better, dock line-out jack, to the inputs on the speakers or stereo. Griffin's iPod Home Connect Kit is a sure bet to get you hooked up right, thanks to its two cables with gold-plated connectors. Both cables have a miniplug on one end that can be plugged into your iPod or dock. The other end of the 6-foot cable provides left/right female RCA plugs, perfect for connecting directly to the inputs on most stereo receivers and amplifiers. The other end of the 7-inch cable provides left/right male RCA connectors, which can attach to an existing pair of stereo interconnects. Or you can connect the two cables together to get a single mini-to-mini cable that will let you plug into most portable and "computer" speakers.
