Our take on the Apple Composite A/V Cable

by Ralph Graves

The Apple composite A/V cable features audio, video and USB connectors so you can use your docking iPod or iPhone with a variety of devices. The composite video connector lets you run video from your player to your TV. Stereo RCA plugs let you connect to most home audio systems so you can listen through your best speakers. Use the USB connector to sync your iPod to a computer — or plug it into the provided power adapter and charge your player from a wall socket.

Apple Composite A/V Cable

Written By Eric, leetown, WV on Friday, September 17, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
works great but the video plug sticks and is very hard to get out, it needs some type of
grip on it.
