MP3 Player Cassette Adapters
Are you up to date with your MP3 player but not quite there in your car? Are you looking for a way to play your favourite digital music mixes? A cassette adapter might be just the ticket.
For the most part, MP3 player cassette adapters are best for the car. At home, you're bound to find more direct ways to play music through your stereo system. On the other hand, in a car you've only got so many input options. Plugging into the cassette deck is far more convenient than buying a new car, and this way you get to listen to your old mix tapes too!
How Cassette Adapters Work
Cassette adapters are a simple way to get your tunes through your car's speakers, but how do they work? In short you're:
buying a cassette case that will fit inside the tape deck, but with an AUX cord
plugging the AUX cord into your device, which sends the electronic signal to the internal write head that converts it to the magnetic field your cassette deck can play.
Other Ways to Play MP3s in the Car
If you don't have a cassette deck to plug into, never fear. You might have an AUX plug on your car stereo, in which case all you'll need is a MP3 player car audio cable. If not, you can still have your digital tunes in your car. Try an MP3 player audio dock and mini speaker to get tunes. It's still less expensive than a new car!
Of course, you may prefer the sound of old cassettes in your car stereo. There are also MP3 adapters that will allow you to record your digital tracks onto cassette. It might be just the thing for your parents who doesn't want the hassle of an MP3 player.
