    Xoom to receiver or external sound card

    Have Xoom, want to connect to my home entertainment system to play my Amazon Could Drive music and other streaming. Tried mini-2-RCA cable = FAIL. Tried microUSB to gender changer to OutLaw audio wireless = FAIL. Tested both the cables and the Outlaw Audio Wireless and they work on a laptop.

    Has anyone tried this, or tried connecting their Xoom via MicroUSB to an external Sound Card, such as Soundblaster Audigy or other?

    Need something like this. For only $1.12 each when QTY 50+ purchased - 3ft Premium 3.5mm Stereo Male to 3.5mm Stereo Male 22AWG Cable (Gold Plated) - Black | 3.5mm Audio M/M Cables

    Plug it into your headphone jack to accessory port on your receiver. Cable has two male ends. Works fine, same plug should hook up to the back of your sound card. Radio Shack and Wal-mart both sell the cable, monoprice is the cheapest though if your willing to wait.

    Thanks. Will try that. I forgot to mention, but thanks for assuming, that the internal speakers work as does the 3.5mm to headphones.

    It can be done wirelessly to many modern receivers can receive Bluetooth.right now I run sound to my stereo system with Bluetooth to a laptop.then the laptops external dac hooked into my preamp.this setup produces a crystal clear sound with lossless wav files.

    If you want to do it wirelessly you could plug something like the Blackberry Audio Gateway into the receiver if it doesn't already have Bluetooth as mentioned above. They work really well and can be gotten pretty cheap now.

    I have this BT receiver. Tends to hicup from time to time though if you're still using your xoom for other things like browsing. Like the fact it has own power source, some of these use batteries.

    the hiccup is coming from using the same storage for browsing and music files.if you move your music to an external sd card it doesnt do it at all.
