Default Connecting my Zen Vision:M to Logitech Z-5500

I have just purchased a Logitech Z-5500 for my home theatre set-up. In the manual it shows that you can hook up your MP3 player using a 'Y-adaptor'.

Here is the back of the unit I need to hook into:



It says I just need the 'Y-adaptor' to connect the player into the three coloured connections on the left of the above picture. Does anyone know what the connection I need is actually called? I have searched under Y-adapter but nothing that I clearly need comes up.

Here is the manual showing the diagram on how to hook it up under the section 2b. (I just need to know exactly what cord to get and perhaps where from - BTW, I'm in Australia): http://logitech-en-amr.custhelp.com/...494083&p_olh=0

Hmm..... I believe you need a male 3.5mm Mini-phone to x3 male 3.5mm cable.

I've actually just got a male 3.5mm to male 3.5mm and are using the headphone jack (there is an input on the side of the receiver for a 3.5mm audio plug).

I don't even know if the three to one 3.5mm cord exists (can't find one anyway).

I haven't seen one in stores either, but I have seen them home-made before.

I couldn't really be bothered home-making a cord to fit. Using the headphone jack seems to work fine except for the volume level. It doesn't really crank very loud compared to when playing a CD or DVD.

It isn't really that hard and it would probably be worth it judging from how you say the playback is through the headphone jack.

I was able to mod a camcorder cord about 6 months ago to allow me to play the Zen through our TV so the modding thing isn't totally foreign to me. Having said that I was playing my player through the speakers on the weekend and the volume was actually quite good. It was VERY loud on about 66% volume so I might just keep with the headphone jack solution.
