- As seen in the pictures, I connected the red and blue jacks to their respective ports in the back. The 3.5 mm jack is then connected to the iPhone (your MP3 player)
- I then chose the 'aux' or 'auxiliary' option on the CD player.
- Once I connected the iPhone (any MP3 player with 3.5 mm jack) I played music from the iPhone (MP3 player)
- Works well and flawless! Highly recommended!
It really is a great product for the price but the model I received has a small flaw that is annoying. The 3.5mm male sheath is too "fat". I have way too many tablets and phones than a normal person should have so I had plenty of devices to test this on. They all have cases on them and most of them had issues with the large profile of the 3.5mm sheath making it to where I had to push hard to get it in or it wouldn't fit at all without removing the device from the case. It's cheap and I can still use it so I'll keep it. For some of you it will work just fine and it will be a 5 star product but others will have issues with their case and it fitting properly.
For purposes of this review, I tested the Belkin cable as follows:
1. While the Radio Shack cable was connected to the Line 2 out jacks of an Onkyo TX-8222 stereo receiver, I connected the Belkin cable to the Line 1 out jacks. I then used each with a laptop playing a web radio station (WQXR FM, which plays classical music), switching back and forth while listening for any audible difference in sound quality. (I switched by connecting and disconnecting the mini-plug on each cable to the headphone jack on the laptop.) My ears detected no difference.
2. With the Belkin connected to the laptop and the Onkyo set to Line 1, I turned off the streaming web radio and turned the volume on the receiver up to the maximum level (the volume on the laptop was already at the maximum level). There was, as I'd hoped, zero hum and "total silence" (as in the scene in Fargo when Steve Buscemi's character attempts to engage his crime partner in conversation).
3. I then connected the Belkin to a Sony Walkman MP3 player. No problems whatsoever; the sound was crystal clear.
4. I twirled the mini-plug in the laptop headphones jack to which it was connected and listened for any electronic noise. There was none. I moved the laptop around (e.g., from the bed to my lap), and there was no noise.
The cable came neatly wrapped in a Belkin cardboard and plastic display package, and the cable itself looks and feels rugged and durable and appears to be of excellent quality.
Update, 8/7/12: Since writing the above I purchased two more of these cables, one directly from Amazon - which was identical to the first one I bought - and one from an Amazon marketplace seller - which did not come in a Belkin package and which consisted of thinner cable than the authentic Belkin cables. I contacted Amazon about this and was able to return the imitation Belkin for a full refund. So if you order a new one from a secondary seller and it does not come in a sealed hard plastic and cardboard Belkin package, you probably got a cheap imitation. (Neither the authentic Belkins and the imitation have any markings on the actual cable itself that would identify it as a Belkin, so one must go by packaging and in my case by being able to compare two that I know are authentic Belkins to one that is markedly different in terms of cable thickness.)
