My car only has a cassette deck, but has input for CD changer. I need to add a line in to the system. Which option (they're in the poll) do you think is best for sound quality and best bang for the buck?

I should add that eventually I want Bluetooth headset and A2DP capability in the system.

I think casset adaptor U can get for about $5 or $10

FM thing is about $10 or $15

If U want the best of the best.. go with Nav with input and ipod docking and etc. :D

Another option is headset... isolation.. a good one now runs about $10.

Probabally too late, but I'll share anway. Best bang-for-the-buck is the cassete adaptor. I've used a couple on various vehciles, and was typically impressed with the results. Thats coming from an automechanic/electronics and sound engineer!

Not to mention they cost 5-15$. (pros:cheap, cons:ugly!)

FM transmitters can be a problem, for starters costing 10 times as much. Not to mention your upper limmit on FM for audio frequency is about 15 or 16KHz.. ideally. Enough to cutoff percussion/chimes the like. Depending on the location of the antenna, there can even be interferance problems.

How can you compare bang-for-the-buck of a 5 dollar adaptor to a 250 dollar radio? :D
