IS there any adapter I could buy that would allow me to use my Super Mini with a stationary source. I can't use a Mini to RCA cable because a mini cable is permently attached to the unit.


Thank you@!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

for a low-budget solution:
howabout something like this


Radio Shack Stereo Plug Adapter
$1.99
Catalog Number: 274-367
Accepts 1/8" stereo phone plug
Fits 1/4" stereo phone jack
Lets you connect lightweight stereo headphones to your home stereo headphone jack.

I'm sure there is a Gold version of this, as well as far higher quality adapters out there. ill post if i find any.

is the cord on your super mini long enough to reach the headphone jack on the stationary source (what kind of source?)?
im sure there are adapter cables as well.

Well...I haven't actually bought the source yet, I was thinking ahead. The problem is most sources don't have headphone outs.

If the source has RCA outputs, you could use a RCA to female mini cable.

Check radio shack.

You could also use a normal mini to RCA cable with a female-to-female coupler.

Radio Shack part No. 274-886

hmm, if you can't find akar's solution of rca to female mini, then you could still do something from that idea. get a mini to rca adaptor, then buy a rca female to male extension...just a thought.

Ok this is what I need:


Female to Female cord


Mini to RCA cord



Anyone who finds the F-to-F cord gets a pat of the back by yours truely.

Monster Cable has come to the rescue!!!


That says Y-adaptor. It's not a Mini (female) to 2 * RCA (male) cable.

It's a RCA to 2 RCA, y-cable.

I suggest that you get 2 female RCA plugs wired from the amp instead.
