Does the Sony ICF-CS15ip work with the BOOM?

The CoolStream BOOM! is NOT compatible with the Sony ICF-CS15IP using only the 30 pin connector.  You can use the audio cable included with the CoolStream BOOM! to connect to the Sony’s AUDIO IN jack.

Here are the steps of how to use the CoolStream BOOM! with the Sony ICF-CS15IP.

  1. Plug the CoolStream BOOM! on to the Sony’s 30 pin iPod connector.  This will give the BOOM! power.  Then plug the included audio cable into the 3.5 AUX Jack on top of the BOOM!.
