Adding another music source

Applies to:

  • SoundDock® XT speaker

You can use another audio device, such as a portable digital music player, with your system. This requires using a stereo audio cable with a 3.5 mm (1/8-inch) mini plug (not provided) that is appropriate for the connected audio device that plugs into the Aux IN connector on the back of the SoundDock® system.

Insert the audio cable from your audio device into the Aux IN jack on the back of the SoundDock® system. If your iPod® or iPhone® is not docked, the connected device will play automatically once it sends an audio signal to the SoundDock® system

Set the connected device to full volume, and then use the SoundDock® system volume buttons to adjust the level


Press and hold VOLUME+ and VOLUME - for two seconds to enable the connected device to play through the system if your iPod® or iPhone® is charging in the dock.
