You shouldn't have a problem hooking up your player to your home system. What you need to do is to check what type of input sockets your system has & then go down to your local dealer & ask the nice man which cable to buy!


I don't own a system at present, so I hook up to dynamic speakers when at home, but I recently took my player on holiday, along with a portable DVD player. It seemed a bit silly to take seperate speakers, so I bought a suitable cable to plug into the back of the DVD player, & everything worked fine.

use a cord that has two ends to it, like a two headed snake:one yellow and one red. Then hook it up through your headphone jack.
