I have an older Alpine cda 7839 headunit in my maxima. I have attached the correct ainet adapter to the back of the stereo, to the radio shack 3' rca converter. I have that wire attached to the SiK auto kit so it connects directly to my 3rd gen ipod.
Anyone have any idea why my car stereo isn't recognizing there's a plug in the back? I hit source and also cd-changer on my remote and it's not changing any mode other than radio and CD.
Please help me figure it out if you have any ideas.
I've been using my 60GB ipod video in my car for a couple months using an RCA to mini cable plugged into the headphone jack and usb cable connected to the lighter charger for charging. I'm the type of person that wants the best sound possible. Everything sounds very close to cd quality but I've read some things saying you can get better sound quality through the dock port. Is this true? Would I get better sound out of the Ten Technology Flexdock? More reasons I'm looking at a different solution to what I've been using is I don't like all the wires for one, and I also don't like having two volume adjustments-through the ipod and the headunit. What about the Blitzsafe option, they don't have a very good website so I couldn't find too much info on it. Does the apple dock station have a stereo hook up option on the back? I am willing to spend money to get the best sound but if possible I don't want to go overboard. I already bought the charger and THX certified RCA cable. But I can get rid of that stuff if need be. However, if I won't get better sound than the setup I have it's not worth it to me. Thanks for any help.
