How to Change AUX Input to a USB Port


An RCA cable plug is typically used for transmitting video or audio to electrical devices that have RCA connections. To use an RCA plug with an auxiliary ("Aux") input on a device such as an amplifier with a USB connection, you need an RCA-to-USB adapter. The adapter conforms the signals transmitted into the RCA-type connection into those that can be recognized and used by a USB connection. You can obtain the adapter from an electronics or computer store. You will not need to modify the RCA cable or the USB connection in order for them to work together.
