    aux. input

    Hello!

    I have a Panasonic CD Receiver
    http://www.prodcat.panasonic.com/shop/product.asp?sku=CQ-DFX77

    Unfortunately, it does not have an aux. input and I don't want to buy
    another deck.
    I am looking at hooking up the a diamond rio (mp3 player) to the deck.
    I was wondering if there is a 'stereo mini jack to cd changer
    interface cable'?
    If this is not possible would it be feasible to add an aux. input to
    the deck?
    I heard FM mod. is another way to go but the sound quality isn't that great.

    thanks,

    Well there are higher quality FM transmitters that plug directly into your antenna and the quality is supposedly decent.

    Rather than spending money on that, buy a CDR and burn your own mix CDs. Good ones are $200 now. You can get them used on eBay for < $70. Why waste time on a Rio w/ 30 minutes of CD Quality when you can have a real CD? Most people here hook up homebrew mp3 players to their cars because they have far greater capacity than 74 minutes of audio.

    OK, thanks for the FM transmitter tip. Do you have any URL's of the supposedly decent sounding FM Mods?

    I have owned a burner for 3 years now!
    I have a tonne of burned cda and mp3 discs.
    When I burn a new audio disc (with the latest and greatest hits) I listen to it for about a month and then hardly ever play it.
    So, instead of wasting $2 and time to burn, why not throw it onto a mp3 player.
    I'm actually getting a 64M springboard module for my handspring visor (plays about 1 hour of music) which is enough to keep me entertained for a bit.

    Hey Dhirsch,
    You can always buy a CDRW with RW Audio CD's Hooking up a RIO is what we are try to get away from. Trust me building an Mp3 system is Fun and it takes away alot of time. If you got sometime to spend and some money hook your Visor to the PC and make a mp3 mobile player.

    They look cooler, and You can have more than 64 Mb, and when you say you get bored of burning new cd's..You will get bored of changing the mp3's on your Visor

    > buy a CDRW with RW Audio CD's Hooking

    Where can I get RW Audio CD's? are they more expensive than regular RW CD's? and will they work with any RW CDR burner?

    thanks, sorry for my ignorance

    Well yeah

    You can pick up a rewriteable drive for pretty cheap right about now. I saw Rewritable audio at Virgin Megastore in new york for about 10$ (US)
