You don't need any additional gadgets to connect an Ipod to 5040A & 6010A. The 6010A's come with two sets of signal cables: 3,5 mm minijack-to-2 x RCA and 2 pcs RCA-to-RCA. Use the minijack-to-2RCA cable to connect your ipod to the 5040A and the RCA-to-RCA cables to go between the sub and the 6010A's. This leaves the minijack connector on the 5040A free for another signal source.

Do your local shops loan equipment for testing at home? The ideal way to decide would be to get a set of Boses and a set of Genelecs for a showdown in the premises where they are intended to go. My money would be on the Genelecs, but I might be biased...
