    Hi all, I'm hoping someone can help me out.

    I'm looking for an ipod dock that has quite a specific specification. I have found what I'm looking for, apart from it does not have a headphone jack, which is pretty important.

    However, it does have a range of connectors, i.e.

    Apple 30 pin Connector, Audio Jack 3.5mm, Audio (2 x RCA) Stereo Line Out, Component Video, Composite Video.

    Is it possible I could use the RCA out or other connector and convert that to a headphone jack which is going to allow me to use my headphones with it to a decent standard, or is this simply not possible?

    If so, what option would be best?

    Many thanks

    Why not just connect the headphones to the iPod?

    Well the dock will also act as a speaker for my tv.

    Looking at the manual I can't see any way to attach headphones directly to the iStation.
