How to connect Xbox 360 to older Sony stereo amp? Answered

Whenever I plug my Xbox into my amplifier, the sound comes out extremely loud and distorted. I am only using the standard RCA plugs, because my TV is kind of old. I would really like to use my Xbox to play music and movies, but my TVs speakers are pretty awful, and I would like to have volume control when using my headphones. The audio settings on the Xbox are very lacking, so there is nothing I can do there.


Sounds like you have the output of the Xbox plugged into the PHONO inputs on the stereo when they should be plugged into an AUX or LINE IN input.


Use either the CD or VIDEO for the input. Let me know if there is still a problem.
