Just picked up 2010 shamrock 19 Friday, went to hook up
iPod on aux port, could hear music but it sounded terrible.
Unit does not have a name on it. Any ideas?

Thanks

Among other things it's called impedance mismatch. You probably hooked headphone out of the ipod to aux in of the radio. Headphone out impedance probably 300 ohm. Aux input impedance most likely 50 ohm, and looking for line level input voltage of not over 1 volt peak to peak. Can you fix it? Not sure without a few details, such as manufacture of radio. Will at least take a matching transformer and some cabling.

yeah, I did the same thing and you're right, it sounds horrible. I think the brand name is Concertone?

Call me curious, but did you ever get it working OK ?

I am picking up a 2010 Shamrock 19 soon, and I will want to use my iPod as well...

Regards,

Denis
