I’m here with another of my strange questions
I own a rather old car stereo, with no CD player nor USB port.
Because most of my tapes are starting to become damaged, and I don’t have anymore a cassette recorder to renew them, and of course because my wallet is constantly growling , I’m trying to find a solution.
For what I know, there are two main possibilities: getting a new car stereo or getting a mp3 player with a cassette adapter (i.e. a thing like this).
After checking for some prices, I noticed that there are no big differences, but buying a new car stereo had a huge disadvantage: I’m not able at all to install it by myself, and I’m pretty sure that bringing my car to a specialized store to install the car stereo will be not cheap.
My question is: is it worth to spend money on a cassette adapter + mp3 player? Anyone ever used these adapters? Is sound quality good (i.e. no hisses, no clicks, etc) or at least decent?
I found that there are a lot of these adapters, with a wide range of prices (from a couple of euros to â‚¬10 or more). There are some special features that I should consider before to choose the adapter?
What about the mp3 player? Is any player good for this job or is better to get a specific model?
Any suggestion is welcome
