View Full Version : Plugging iPhone 4 into Insignia 200w 2.0 receiver

Hello all,

Recently, I have been putting together a 2.0 system for my home gym. I tried plugging in my iPhone 4 to the reciever, using Belkin AV cables, it sounded really bad, and I was unable to listen to my music. Fm radio and CD player work fine.

So my question is, how do I need to connect my iPhone to my reciever so I get superior sound quality? I listen to downloaded music and Pandora radio. I keep hearing I need a dock, but they can be expensive, and I want to see if there are any cheaper, but still good, alternatives. If a dock is best, don't hold back.

Thank you,

A dock may be the way to go or some other type of small portable device
