RE: FM transmitters - any suggestions ?

Requiring the input jack to be on the face of the unit will limit your
choices for stereos substantially. There are a plethora of devices that
have auxiliary inputs that are not face-mounted. (Face plate real estate is
at a premium most times.) I would suggest just getting a unit that has an
aux input and just having the installer run a line under the dash. That's
what I did with my Nakamichi 45Z and it works perfectly with my JBR20. (I
actually had two monster RCA cables run, and I use an RCA -> 3.5mm adapter
to plug into the Archos.)

the (legal) fm transmitters are not worth even the energy required to plug
them in. if you get one for free, try to sell it on ebay. don't waste your
time trying to use it yourself.

i bought an iRock last night, and i will return it to the seller today. if
you really like the quality of AM station when you are 100 miles from any
city, you *might* like the iRock's sound quality. it's really bad.

since my car stereo is crappy anyway, it was actually cheaper for me to
replace the thing. i agree that a line-in jack for a car stereo is a must.

you can find some models with cassette players and line-in jacks for under
$30, including shipping on

in other news... my new jukebox recorder is scheduled to arrive today! yes!
