Apparently, yes, it can. I have been plugging things into other things for years (former DJ), and this is without a doubt one of the nicest pieces of cabeling I have ever used. The plugs/connectors are beautiful and appear to be of very high quality. This is not a heavy-duty commercial grade cable, but it is far and away the nicest home-use cable I've ever owned (including some Monster stuff). Lovely piece and well worth the price. The three connectors are color-coded to match the colors of the input jacks on yout TY: yellow, red and white. If you spent the bucks on a nice iPod, it deserves a nice cable too. You will not be disappointed with this item (and I'm very particular about my gadgets).
