    Is there a way to listen to my iphone (podcasts, music, etc) over my home Sony receiver? Maybe plug it into the head phone jack? Any ideas?

    you can use an auxillary cord with the jack (like what you see on earbuds) on both ends. plug one into the stereos 'aux' outlet and the other into your iphone where you would normally plug your earbuds into.

    Cut the cord!

    Get an Apple Airport Express wireless router ($99). Connect the output to an audio input on your stereo.

    Then use AirPlay from your iPhone or iPad or computer (iTunes).

    Works like a charm.

    Don't plug your phones earphone output to the aux out of your receiver. It wont work. You can get a cable with the headphone jack on one end and RCA plugs on the other and plug those into an aux input on your receiver, and the headphone jack into your phone. That's the cheap way. Or do what others have said with airport or apple tv.

    Thank you noaim. That's exactly what I meant, in fact my daughter plugs her iPhone into her car just as you do yours with no issues, sounds great too. My son plugs his iPod into his stereo the same way with the cord and it has great sound as well

    I bought Apple's dock, it was less than $30.00 It has stereo out and I got a cable that separates the dock's jack into component input for the stereo. It works with the iphone or ipad and my wife keeps her ipad 2 in the dock all the time. Has the stereo on while cleaning. It also keeps the device charged. Works great.

    I've been doing this for about 2 years now. I love it! Now, since I got my iPhone, with the remote app, I can now control my iTunes from anywhere in the house, and hear my music everywhere as well.

    Yep, sorry, I read it as her saying to plug it into an aux output (as in headphone out). My mistake!!

    fair enough, just a little mis-communication. it happens from time to time - its all good appreciate the apology, as not many people would do that
