Your iPod pumping on your stereo

What's the best way to hook up an iPod to a home stereo?
| | The easy cable way:
1. Buy a $5 1/8-inch mini-to-stereo RCA cable from RadioShack.
2. Connect the RCA end to Aux In or CD In on back of your stereo.
3. Plug the mini end into the iPod jack. Or better yet, if you own an iPod dock, plug it into the dock's line-out jack.
4. Press Play.
Afraid of cables? Check out FM transmitters for the iPod. We don't love 'em, but they may work for you.
And definitely get yourself a NaviPod wireless remote
if your iPod is often anchored to your stereo.
