    the cable hook up uses your ai-net or m-bus input and coverts it to an aux input. the ipod adapter, or ipod interface, allows you to connect your ipod directly to your hu. this gives you the ability to control and view songs on your ipod. i would recommend the simple cable since the ipod interface has some memory issues and is only compatible with the ipod. the aux adapter can be used with almost any electronic device. you can get the aux adapter from crutchfield for around $15.

    do all HU have aux input? and if i use the simple cable hook up would that give you the same clarity of the music from your mp3 player? and is there a name for the cable?

    not all alpines can use the aux adapter, but most newere models can. i use the cable with the belkin connection kit for my ipod and the audio is very clear. i believe the name is versatile-link cable, models kcm-122b for the m-bus and kcm-122a for the ai-net.

    Just get this:
    http://www.crutchfield.com/S-ohUcUiM...0KCM123B&o=&a=

    It will fit the Alpine 9821 Model.

    Should also be available at the place you bought your HU.
