    Old Music Centres

    Hello, can anybody please tell me if I can connect and use my squeezebox with an old 1970's music centre please, it only has an auxillliary input, I think.

    I had this system back in the day, and absolutely loved it, I only got rid of it when I went digital because it only played records, tape and radio.

    Do you mean AUX as in 3.5mm jack? Or do you mean something else? For example many 70s Music Centres had a single 5 pin DIN connection.
    You can get 5 pin DIN to 4 x RCA cables (2 in and 2 out) and also one way cable sets (5 pin DIN to 2 x RCA)

    I bought it. I'll go through all those instructions , if I cant get it working from the computer in some way I'll get a small set of speakers and set it up in the spare room as a record player and radio
