      I don't know about any of those, but I spent around $50 or $70 on mine, and it sounds great. However, I have heard many cheaper ones that sound horrible. Do yourself a favor and check your local car audio shop. At least you can tell how they sound there.

        Have a look first and see if you can get an AUX-IN adapter for your current car stereo. www.connects2.com make decent ones that work with a wide range of standard head units.

          I have done quite a bit of reading on this fm modulator thing, and even though it will not give you the best sound quality, it definitely is the cheaper/easier/more efficient route if you are on a budget and dont have an aux in hu. the one i have found most people like the most is the jvc ks-if200, it has an auto power down when not recieving a signal, and also has like 8 channels to choose from. i have not used this item myself yet, but have ordered one. you can usually get a used one on ebay for about 30 bones.

              probably should start your own thread...

                  I can't remember, and I can't find my receipt. But I'll open up my dash and see on my next day off.

                        I have an Audiovox FMM100A. Looks like they are much cheaper now than I paid for mine. Here's a good pic of one. http://www.discountmobilevideo.com/items/item388.htm

                        I bought mine at a local shop over a year ago. Just remember, no matter how you get your sound from the PC to the speakers, your mp3 rip quality will have a tremendous effect on the quality of the sound. I ripped all of my music at 192kbps, and they sound great. However, if you download or rip at lusy bitrates, you'll get lousy results even with the very best equipment.

                        Sorry it took so long. Today was my first day off.

                        Edit: oops, it looks like it was the next-to-last one in your list. Cheap Price!

                          I paid $30 for my FM Modulator. It is a BOSS and it sounds great.

                            I checked on the net to see if I could find the one I got before and I came across this one. Dang good deal for a nice looking BOSS fm modulator.
