Low profile plug and line level connection to the AUX input.

I also use this one in an older car and it works flawlessly:

I have that exact charger/line out adapter and the sound from the line out always comes out way over-gained. I regret getting it, and wish I got the belkin with the gain adjustment.

Ok i just got it in the mail just now And I Had to come and tell you all what a difference it makes! I ordered this one...http://www.sendstation.com/us/produc...neout-usb.html

AND WOW!!!

I don't have logic 7, but I couldn't imagine a better sound! I will say audio quality inproved about 70 percent! Bass response is much deeper and I am hearing parts of songs I never heard! I love it! I wish I would have known sooner! If you have an ipod and you are using the headphone jack STOP!! Order a line out and you will be amazed!! I also like that the volume on the ipod is set without control, so it can't be too high or too low from the ipod end! I would have to say this is the best 27 bucks I have spent in a long time!! :rocks:

+1 I agree. Once I figured out that you can change the AUX IN volume this sounds fantastic on my Logic 7. For some reason the AUX IN volume was turned to full and was distorting some songs. Turned it all the way down and now all my songs sound great.

if you mean the BMW Interface for iPod, yes, of course, that's the whole point; if you mean via the aux- in, no, how could it possibly do that?

First time I've heard a complaint with the Monster product. Have you tried changing EQ settings on the iPod or adjusting the AUX In port volume?

Where do you adjust the AUX in port volume?

From the Owner's Manual - left clip is non-IDrive, right is IDrive.

On the non-IDrive version the AUX input volume adjusts separate from the main volume by pressing the buttons under VOL-AUX when the AUX input is selected.

The attached clip for IDrive is real clear on how to adjust the actual input volume. It looks like after adjusting the volume you select 'Set' to fix the volume level. I don't have IDrive so I've never done it, but I'm sure Jonathan or someone else will come along clear it up if you have IDrive.

I have the idrive but have not been able to find a way to adjust the aux volume. I will take a look at what you said and see if I can find it. Thanks
