Chances are the iPod adapter is the only way to add an MP3 player, i'm not familiar with all the connections available; but I think there are some devices that will convert any audio source to a standard "auxiliary input" so you could add any mp3/cd player.

But most aux stuff allows control of the device.. so the ipod conector would alow you to change songs on the ipod from your stereo; i'd doubt it'd work like that with the generic device i was talking about above... chances are it'd make it look like a cd changer with 1 cd with 1 track and you'd have to control on your player manually..

But you can't control your PSP though can you? It's direct audio at that point right?

Some AUX devices (if I understand correctly) can actually be controlled by the OEM radio with the proper AUX cable for your device; it's a serial standard if i'm not mistaken that can be adapted to many pieces of hardware for control, or can be completely ignored and have raw audio passed through with a simulated disc changer.

I don't use an ipod so I'll settle for a direct audio setup. So is there a place on the back of the stock head unit to hook one up?

The "AUX" button found on earlier model 7th gen Accords was designed by Honda/Acura for their add-on audio components including the 6-disc in-dash changer, 8-disc trunk-mounted CD changer, cassette player, and MP3 player. You will notice on some models equiped with XM radio, the button will say "XM" instead of AUX - this is yet another component that has the capability to be connected and controller by the Honda stock radio. The ipod link uses the same connection - which is why it acts like a cd changer. If you want to do a little reading, the data structure used on this interconnecting "bus" is called GA2-NET Bus by Honda, or IEBus by NEC (Honda uses NEC's ICs and has just renamed it for marketing)
