lots of people do it.... I will say it's not my preferred method. Mainly for controlling of the sound input, even if you only plan on listening to your ipod only, you lose the ability to equalize and fade. My preference is a deck with an accessory input/ipod control... so I can still control basic function from the deck and still have the option of other features.

The main reason I am using this setup is because I already had the parts laying around and I am cheap trying to find a good deal on a Nakamichi or Alpine deck :-p

werd if you've got the parts it's a simple and easy setup..... I just couldn't imagine buying an EQ to not run a deck, or attempting to use the EQ on the IPOD.


Mine was more of a simple statement, of if you are buying all the parts and doing the wiring, I don't think it's worth it. Since you can cheaply buy decks nowadays that will do the same thing.
