  1. 1

    Plug each of the two RCA splitter cables into the two RCA "Audio Out" connection ports on the rear of the device. An RCA splitter cable looks like a "Y," with the single, bottom connection plugging into the RCA out ports. This transforms the two RCA audio out connections (use by one device) into four connection ports.

  2. 2

    Attach the two sets of RCA audio cables into the two "Audio Out" ports you've created.

  3. 3

    Insert the opposite ends of the RCA audio ports into the two different devices (two cables into each device for stereo sound).

  4. 4

    Turn on the equipment. The connected audio devices are now able to produce the audio signals at the same time.
