MP3 Players With Line Out Capability
by gosfan / February 20, 2005 8:20 AM PST

The dock for the iPod adds a line-our jack to the iPod. You can also connect a charger to the dock at the same time. The dock for the iPod Mini allows the same capability.

At least two Sony CD/MP3 players (the D-CJ01 and the D-NE710) feature a line-out jack, in addition to the standard headphone jack. The line-out jack uses a standard 1/8" stereo plug (the same as used for a set of headphones).

I hope that helps.

Thanks, but i needed more

Its the line out jack that takes the 1/8" stereo plug that i was looking for, but only on an MP3 player alone, rather than a CD player with MP3 capabilites. I am a little unsure what you mean about the iPod dock letting the iPod have line-out, but i assume that because you mentioned the dock, u need it with you to use the line-out capabilites. That rather defeats the object of having a portable device!! I guess the answer to my original question is "no" then, there aren't any sole MP3 players out there with line-out too?! Thanks though mate. Gaz

MP3 player line out

I have the same need. I've been looking for a 40gb player. The only one I've found that fits my needs is the Rio Karma. It is only a 20gb but comes with a docking station that has stereo line out jacks.
