Hi, I have an Apline CDA-7893 receiver in my car. This receiver claims to work with CD changer(Apline only). However Alpline claims that its products will only work with other Apline products but i have a profile Amp. that works just fine with it- SO my problem is that i have 3 pre amp outputs- Sub. -Front Out- and Rear Out. I have an ipod that i connect with a headphone jack to RCA connector to the receiver. In Auxilary mode i can listen to the ipod but none of the functions on the receiver work, ex: i cannot adjust volume, bass, trebele, frequences etc. Is this because the preamps outputs are OUTPUTS?? help please!!

The outputs are meant to be used to connect the front/rear/sub signals to an amplifier, then to the speakers...therefore bypassing the amplification on the cd player.

If you browse around on the message board, you'll see that this topic is being discussed (how to connect the ipod to your HU)'s a few I found.

also, you can use the search function for the message board (upper right on screen) and search for more discussions... good luck!
