Pros: It works.

RCA to Mini

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent product to hook up your Iphone or Ipod to a stereo receiver. If you don't want to spend the money to upgrade your receiver to something that has "Air Play". This is the OLD School answer.

Pros: inexpensive way to hook a smartphone or mp3 player to a home stereo system.

Cons: none

No room to charge iPod Nano

Written By Barry, Portland, OR on Sunday, May 24, 2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The cable works great with our iPod (Nano 4G), BUT you can't charge the iPod at the same time. The problem is that the mini connector's housing is fatter than the earbud's mini connector housing, and does not leave enough room for you to also connect the usual USB cable or a charger to the iPod's main port.

If I had an expensive cable to compare this with, I don' t think I could tell the difference. I use it to connect my iPhone to my car and don't hear any noise or feedback when on phone calls

Not worth it

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I recently bought the PAC Sony Unilink adapter Auxiliary input turn on from crutchfield to hook my I-pod up to my 2000 sony cd player. Not knowing if the PAC would work, I ordered this cable along with it (ignoring the other reviews stating that the cable was not very good), as I would not be out much if the PAC didn't work. Fortunately, the PAC worked. Unfortunately, this cable is terrible. Out of the box, there was a scratching sound and I had to play with the cord near the 3.5 mm end to get both sound channels. At times the sound completely cuts out. I never thought I would return anything I only paid $5 for, but in this case I plan on doing so. Bottom line - don't waste your money - get a better cable from the start.

My cord lasted about a month before it broke. The connection wasnt great in the first place and after a few weeks of use it completely feel apart. I'd suggest wires with better shielding and gold-plated connectors.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Worked for three days with my Aux input on my 2005 Mustang. Then the cable lost its internal connection and only allowed the right side speakers to play. The left played as well IF you dont mind pinching the cable.. Now I'm going to have to open up the entire dash again and replace with a Monster Cable.

Bought this cable to connect my SkiFi2 to the AUX input of my Panasonic MXE CQ-C7203U head unit. While it sounds much better than FM transmitting, I do hear some interference during acceleration. I would recommend finding a cable with better shielding.

Works as expected

Does what it is supposed to. I used this with the Pioneer aux adapter to hook my iPod to my car CD player.

I ordered this to use with my blaupunkt aux cable and the cord went to crap after about a week of use. The wires were loose inside the cord, I had to bend the cord a certain way to get the cord to work...maybe it was the brand of cable... I'm not sure
