Stock iPod USB cable -> Total Bithead

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi,

I am thinking about buying a Total Bithead for use with my iPod and laptop and am curious, can I just use the stock line out to USB cable that is used for transferring music to connect it, or will I need to buy a different cable for that?  Obviously in a pinch I can use the headphone jack, but I think it's too noisy.

You need to use the headphone jack or a line out dock. A line out dock connects through the 30-pin port at the bottom. The headphone jack is not too noisy at all - that is some sort of urban legend that doesn't even really apply to noisy sources like the AMP3.

Thanks for the feedback.  I'm still a little confused why I can't use the stock cable.  It is the 30-pin proprietary connector on one end and USB on the other.

 

If you are correct, then using the headphone jack will work fine anyway I suppose.

It needs to to be 30 pin ipod connector one end and 3.5mm audio out one end

The cable that came with it works for charging and syncing, but not for audio output. You need to get as mentioned above a line out dock that enables the line out function of the iPod from the 30-pin. These cost from 15-500$. PM me about one if you want. I've a couple extra ones I may not need.
