Connecting Creative Zen to an Amplifier

This is not strictly a computer question but recently I brought a Creative Jukebox Zen and then I found out that I could buy a 3.55mm to 2 RCA cable and hook it up to my amplifier. I have brought the cable but there was no instructions with it on which slots should I plug the connectors into on the back of the amplifier, The packaging did refeer me to a cable wizard on their website but this did not tell me either. How do I hook up my creative Jukebox Zen to my amplifier?

I'm trying to get to grips with what you are trying to do. I have downloaded the manual to see what sort of outputs it has. I notice it has 2 line output sockets, one for the front speakers, the other for the rear speakers. Usually these outputs are 100 - 300 millivolts, although the manual doesn't make it clear, so they need to plug into the high level input to the amp, this are probably maked Radio or Aux.

Have I understood your question?

The phono plugs can be plugged "L"eft & "R"ight to a vacant position in the back of the amp. DO NOT use the phono / record player input on the amp if there is one as this is not suitable for anything other than a record player. Then plug the 3.5mm jack into the headphone socket on your jukebox. That will give you sound output into your amp!!!!

any connection on the amp will be fine (aux,cd,line in etc)as above dont plug into phono,it will work but will be loud(very)and may damage the speakers.
