    Get a cable from RadioShack. A 3.5 earphone jack on one end, and a red and white RCA jack on the other end of the cable. That'll work just fine.
    What I have now is a Jabra Bluetooth (from eBay) receiver where you can connect your regular or favorite 3.5 earphone. Instead of using the cable that I mentioned connected directly to my iPad, I connect the RCA to the stereo and the other end to the Bluetooth device. Regardless what room I am in, I can control the music anywhere with my iPad. The best is when I'm lying down and I don't have to stand just to get close to the stereo and change the music.
    What do you think?

    Can you enlighten us a bit more? Exactly what Jabra device did you buy? That sounds very cool!

    What I have is the Jabra Bluetooth Clipper. Just connect the 3.5 end of the stereo cable to the Clipper and the RCA jack end of that same cable to the auxiliary input of the stereo.
    How do I paste a picture so it'll be easier for me describe the cable?
