Enjoy KCRW.com on your home stereo!
It’s easy to connect your computer to your stereo receiver and enjoy KCRW’s web
streams, archives, and podcasts in the beautiful full stereo of your home audio system. It only takes a couple minutes and one little cable.
To get hooked up, follow these simple steps:
STEP 1. Purchase an extended cable adapter with a stereo mini-headphone jack on one end and left and right stereo RCA-type plugs on the other end. RCA plugs are those red and white plugs that hook into the back of your stereo receiver. You can find this type of cable (also called a stereo 3.5mm Y Adapter cable) in various lengths at your neighborhood electronics store or through many online retailers.
STEP 2. Plug the mini-headphone jack into your computer’s line out. If your computer does not have a line out, use the headphone port.
STEP 3. Connect the two RCA plugs on the cable to the AUX or TAPE input jacks on your stereo receiver.
STEP 4. Turn on your stereo and switch to either AUX or TAPE input (whichever you used to connect the RCA cable). If the audio is loud or distorted, turn the volume down on your computer.
STEP 5. That's it! Now you're ready to enjoy KCRW.com in full stereo with your home audio system.
