Amplified mp3

I want to play my mp3 player through my amplifier but the player isn't powerful enough. I'm connecting it through the av out on the Zen and into the aux input on my amp. I've tried connecting it through the headphone output but that gives even less oomph.
Thoughts and suggestions?

Does your mp3 player have an eq?

In reply to: Amplified mp3

Check if your player has and EQ feature on it if you can change the settings you should be able to get better sound. Also what bit rate are your recording your songs at? The higher the bitrate the the better the sound of the song but the more space it will take up on the player.
