I'm on the hunt for a product that doesn't seem to exist, and I figured if anyone had heard of it, they'd be on here.
On the deck in my backyard, I have some very nice speakers mounted around the area. I originally had this wired directly into my stereo's receiver, and then I would play music through that stereo to the speakers. I have simple speaker wires running to these speakers.
I have since gotten rid of the entire "stereo" setup and replaced it with both a Zune and my Windows Phone. (Feel free to give me crap about my Microsoft bias, but they're both amazing devices, IMHO).
Anyways, I'm looking for a simple dock that would allow me to play any MP3 device (iPod, Zune, phone, etc.), and transmit the audio directly to the speakers that I've already got wired up. Bonus points if the dock can be mounted inside a wall, and even more points if it has a remote for volume.
Have you ever heard of anything like this? My best searches are coming up empty in a sea of iPod-specific boomboxes and speaker docks, neither of which I want at all.

If you just want something to output audio into your speakers which only have RCA inputs, then the following is the only thing you need.

Just buy a decent amplifier that allows for the proper outputs, and for RCA input, and boom, done.
