Hello,

I just got a Monster Cable to connect my MacG4 to my stereo.

When I plug the cable into the phono and play a song in iTunes I do hear something but I can't really call it music. It sounds like a song with a ton of buzzing and distortion. Can barely tell what song is playing.

Any ideas of how I can make this work? My stereo just too old (1994)?


Thanks for your help.

Sorry, I don't know what a Monster Cable is, do you have a link?

If your G4 has a headphone jack then you just need a normal headphone to red/white cable (sorry, don't know the technical words) to go between the two...

Got somewhere else you can plug it in?

Just phono, speakers (needing bare red and black wire), and video MD whatever that is...

If your stereo has Aux or CD or VCR inputs use those. Any line level input should work. Phono is not line level.
What stereo (brand, model) do you have?
