    Is the Apple headphone port spec different than other computers - I always have problems with them playing through my HiFi - on all sorts of Apple devices?

    The problem seems to be with the cable that connects the headphone port on Macs to Amplifier cables Aux In. Often the sound will come out of a one speaker only unless you wiggle it around in the headphone port. I get this with either Mac laptops, iPhones or iPods and have had it with several cables.

    Does your amplifier have any usb inputs, and have you tried lod cables? A logical guess would be something wrong with the amplifier, if multiple cables and sources do the same thing.
