Re: [ARSCLIST] On the beaten 8-track...
I have used both a cassette adapter and a radio broadcaster to listen to
my iPod in the car. My experience was that the cassette adapter was
awful, lost a lot of the high-end sound, and was so bad that no music
was better. I later bought one of those little gadgets that broadcasts
your iPod on a radio band, and have been much more satisfied with the
sound quality. It isn't as good as the -- get this -- digital original,
but sounds generally as good as stuff coming over the radio does.
Caveat/disclaimer: I listen to a lot of indie rock and electronica, so
maybe the results would be different if my iPod were full of, say,
classical music or early jazz.
P.S. All the cheap rental cars I've driven in the last 5 years or so
have only had CD players/radios -- no cassette tape players, so don't be
so sure your next car will have one!

Some of us, or at least I, currently drives a car with a cassette

anyone had any luck with the cassette insert adapters for use with
IPOD's or portable cd players?
