    SB Touch & Car Alpine Media Player

    Hello,

    I have SB Touch connected Analog RCA with my hi-fi system Sony and it's work perfectly.

    I see the player have several output options, and i need use it in my car like a media player with my Alpine IDA X305S

    My question is if i can't connect it with alpine RCA Output and if i use the Headphone output jacks the quality sound it's the same like Red and White RCA or not.

    What's is the best solution for i can use the SB Touch in my car with the best quality audio option

    Thank you

    Red/White RCA out from SB Touch to Red/White RCA input on Alpine but the SB Touch will require a WiFi network connection I suspect.

    Yes i have 4G internet box in my car work with battery

    RED & White in Alpine it's for speaker connection and not for receive audio signal i think ?

    in description below i think it's for speaker

    And i find this accessory

    Alpine KCA-121B

    For Versatile Link compatible Ai-NET headunits; makes RCA audio signal input from any audio source possible (TV tuner, game, etc)

    Alpine KCA-235B

    To connect a portable MP3 player or similar to an Ai-NET Head Unit

    i think it's do the job

    No. They are dual purpose in/out connectors with mode presumably set from within the Alpine software

    You car speakers connect via the black multi plug from existing loom UNLESS you have an external amp in which case the amp is fed from one of the two sets of red/white RCA multi purpose connectors in out mode and the speakers would then be connected directly to the amp.

    Red/White RCA's are definitely what you need.

    Where were you going to run LMS in your car? I assume you have an LMS server at home.
