Our take on the Arista 18-3132

by Ralph Graves

This handy cable from Arista lets you run both audio and video from your iPod to your home system. The cable's mini plug fits into your player's headphone jack. Three RCA plugs on the other end connect to your system — one for composite video, and two for stereo audio. Gold-plating on the plugs prevents corrosion, ensuring a clean connection.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
If you're looking for an inexpensive way to connect your iPod to your audio
system then this is the way to do it. I have an audio system setup for my
pool outside and was looking for a way to play my iPod through my stereo
speakers. This is exactly what I was looking for.
