    Post Where can I find adapter for IP bus ???

    Where can I find one of those adapters that has the CD changer/controller plug on one end and the RCAs on the other?
    TIA

    Try www.crutchfield.com They sell car stereo equipment. Your brand stereo has to support it. Some don't.

    Or you could make your own... it's only 3 wires.

    I have a diagram on my site... http://mp3box.2y.net/photos/ipbusdiagram.gif

    You can use RCA jacks instead of the 1/8" stereo, too.

    It's not the same for everyone. Not all pin-outs are the same. I had to put resistance in certain signals to "fool" my head unit into thinking there was a cd-changer connected.

    Ok Guys - Thanks for all the help. Thanks for the link to Crutchfield, Carlos... I recall reading about them here earlier, just couldn't remember the name...

    My current Kenwood head unit doesn't support the adapter, so I'm looking at a new head unit as well.

    Ok, so in my price range (that would be "AS CHEAP AS POSSIBLE" heh heh), I've narrowed it down to a few units:
    (BTW, all prices are in Canuck $$)

    Adapter plus Kenwood KDC-516s- $320, but lose the option of adding a changer as well.

    Adapter plus Pioneer DEH-P3300(DEH-P330 in the states) - $390.

    Adapter plus Sony XRCA300 - $300.

    So... The Sony, it is...

    I'm still at work, (got the on-call page, now just waiting for a database to rebuild ), so unless someone posts a good reason not to go this route, I'm off to Future Crap as soon as I'm outta here, to pick up the Sony unit...

    dos4who?: I have a Kenwood HU model KDC-6015 and it was only $299 at A&B Sound. I believe its a little better then the 516S (or whatever).

    Also with the Kenwoods you can buy a switcher box that will plug into the cd-changer aux in and then give you 2 cd changer plugins and a pair of RCA ins.

    Just thought I'd pass that along.

    Thank you all for your help...
    Well, for 300 bucks (Canadian) and change, I ended up going for the Sony package.
    I went to Future Shop, and they were all out of the model I wanted, and they said it'll be a LONG time before they expect stock again, so I just ordered it online. Total, including taxes & 2-day shipping was $179.19
    Then, I went to Crutchfield's site and ordered the adapter. Total there, including 2-day shipping was $109.90 US. ($166.51 Canadian).
    The math totals out to $345.70 CDN. For reference, that's $228.20 USD.
    Since I got called in for a few hours overtime both yesterday AND today, , my little weekend spending spree hasn't really come out of my pocket... Actually, I'm ahead by over a hundred bucks.
    Thanks again for everyone's help & input. As always, you'll read about the results on this board...
