How to run 20 feet of 3.5mm to RCA cabling?

What's the cheapest/simplest way for me to run sound from my iPod/laptop (3.5mm jack) to a stereo (RCA) about 20 feet away? If it were a shorter distance I'd just get a standard audio cable, but I'm worried that something like this will lose a lot of signal/fidelity. [more inside]

Please help me improve the sound of my iPod through my car stereo.

The stereo on my Toyota Aygo has an iPod jack, but the sound is AWFUL. If it's loud enough to hear, there's as much hiss as there is music. I've tried every possible volume adjustments between iPod/stereo. Will one of these headphone amps help? [more inside]

How can I loop a sample continuously on an iPod?

I have a 1G iPod Nano with 4 gigs of space. I'd like to play a sample in a continuous loop in order to get a constant stream of white noise, without breaks/gaps/clicks and taking up as little space on the iPod as possible. Is this doable and if so, how?

Sound failing in video files ripped with Handbrake

TV show episodes ripped to iPod via Handbrake (aka MediaFork) are dropping audio 3/4 of the way into the file. Arrrrrgh! Has anyone found a reliable way of overcoming it? Or do you have a better program to recommend? [more inside]

Why does my iPod lose right-channel sound?

My second-generation iPod nano sometimes seems to lose right-channel sound, on any pair of ear buds, headphones, or speakers; only pushing the jack "up" towards the front restores the right channel, and even then only temporarily. Is this just what these iPods do, or is my particular unit defective? [more inside]

A Car Mounted iPod Hi-Fi?

I want to get a decent stereo system in my car (an Isuzu Rodeo). Nothing too fancy, but decent. I got to thinking: could I just stick the iPod Hi-Fi in my back seat? How would that sound? Any ideas on positioning, or mounting? Also, is this the lamest idea ever?

What would ELLIOTT YAMIN do? (for listening to tunes on his iPod)

I've got a similar situation to the American Idol runner-up: My right ear is fully functional, but I am 90% deaf on my left ear. However, my left ear was deformed at birth, so my earbuds don't fit in it. [more inside]

iPod speaker recommendations?

I want to buy some speakers for an Ipod. Altec Lansing and Bose have both made speaker sets that use the docking port, so that's kind of cool, but are the speakers worth it? The Bose ones in particular are $300, which seems really high. Anyone have any experience with these? Or is it just better to buy some regular powered speakers and plug them into the earphone jack?
