Hey guys! I'm new here so I hope this doesn't sound like a stupid question... Can someone explain to me how I can hook my iPhone up to the boombox? What tools do I need and what input do I need to use? Thanks a lot for your help!

If you are in the USA, WalMart sells a dual RCA to 1/8" din AUX cable for around 5 bucks.. Just plug one end into the headphone jack of your phone, and the other two ends plug into the L and R Line inputs on the side of the M70!

Monster cables are the best, but local ones are good enough! :yes:  :-D  :-D

Beware of "premium" cables, a lot of them are too f'n thick and rigid, don't bend enough, and don't give you any sound advantage anyway.  It's just a boombox.

I've gone through quite a few cheapo cables that stuff up a few weeks in. I bought a Belkin cable and it's been great. I agree about the premium, thick cables - too stiff.

Says the gentleman with untold $ invested in boomboxes...   :-P

 

I hear you on the cables.  Gold contacts are as "premium" as I usually go.  I find that when you get into the longer cables it's sometimes quicker and less expensive to make your own.  Most of us I'm guessing have a lot of old RCA cables hanging around from over the years.  Just a thought.

 

Oh, and thanks again for the eBay lead on that RCA to DIN cable you hooked me up with a while back.  ;-)

If you wanna be old school and leverage the cassette yet have the never ending Spotify mixtape, the this is pretty neat: https://www.amazon.c...h/dp/B00I3YLHAC

P.S. You can control the gain the cassette so you don’t have to get up and walk over to adjust the volume or pause the party.

Yep, there's a thread about that here:

Much cleaner than the old style with the wire hanging out the door.
