Hopefully someone knows the answer to this: I hooked up my iphone 6S up to my Marantz PM 6005 amp using an RCA 3.5 adapter, but when I listen through the headphone jack, I get static on piano tracks--specifically, I noticed it while playing Debussy's "Clair de Lune."

I've read elsewhere a good set of headphones will sometimes overwhelm the headphone jack on some amps. Unfortunately, my speakers haven't arrived yet, so I can't tell if this problem is just with the headphone jack, or with all outputs.

Any thoughts? They'd be most appreciated.

Thanks for the response. And I think you're spot on: this morning I turned down the volume on my iPhone and (presto!) the static disappeared.

I'm still kinda curious about the physics of it all, though: I wonder if there's something about piano music that requires a lower volume level, since none of the other tracks produces static, regardless of how high I have the phone's volume. In any case, thanks again!
