      The difference: $5.00

      The Precision Interface Electronics part is just a generic version of the actual Pioneer CDRB10. They'll both accompish the same thing. As far as sound quality goes, I'm not sure how there could be much of a difference. It's just an analog audio input.

        PIO/P-RCA Reply to Thread

        Thanks. I'll probably go with the PIO/P-RCA because it has a smaller connector on the end of the harness which will be easier to run under my carpet.

          Just make sure if you're using the CDRB10, that you don't have a Pioneer CD changer in the system. If you do, you will lose the ability to use your CD changer. If you want aux inputs and keep your Pioneer CD changer, you need the CDRB20.

              Don't buy either...you can do it yourself. the forums, there was a post that had the pinout for the CDRB10 CDRB20 auxillary in on the back of Pioneer head units. I used the diagram of the pinout and some old CD-ROM audio cable harnesses to use to plug directly into the four pins on the back of my pioneer HU for the RIGHT + / RIGHT - / LEFT + / LEFT - audio inputs. I soldered the other end of the wires to a miniplug (can also solder to composite RCA inputs) Works like a charm and saves you from having to buy a part.

              If you can't find the thread, I still have the jpgs of the pinouts somewhere, let me know if you need it posted.

                    old thread I know. i have a pioneer p7400mp hu. currently i connect my ipod directly to the aux ports on the back of the hu. it works ok but the sound is very low. if i buy one of those adapters will the volume output increase with the cable vs not having one.


                    thanks!

                      Moonshiner,

                      I tried your approach, and may be missing something. I used a mini headphone jack, split out the wires into the R+, R-, L+, and L- then spliced them onto 26 Ga butt splices. I inserted those butt splices into the 4 individual pins on the back of my Pioneer car stereo. I suspect there is more I need to do. When I connect my MP3 (Sansa) player and try playing it through the CD, the input does not seem to be enabled. Do I not also have to enable some switch, and not sure how to do that using the pinout diag. you posted.

                      Any help is appreciated. I'm trying to save money and be innovative.
                      Thanks.

                        pioneer AUX input connection for IPOD

                        did you ever figure this out?

                        Did you enable the aux input in the function menu?

                        I need to know if the direct pin method works - I would rather do that than spend 35 bucks on a damn adapter...
