alright, first of all i do know that there is an ipod question thread. I would just like an answer before next week. thanks.

I'm just asking all of the iPod owners how they listen to their ipods in the car AND in their house (without headphones). I want to play mine in my car and my house. I don't want to buy a speaker system (bose for example) that is designed for ipod and costs just as much as one. I have a nice speaker system. I would like to be able to buy a transmitter that plays the ipod over the radio without having to be plugged into the cars lighter plug. All of the fm transmitters i've seen that aren't pieces of crap need to be plugged into the car lighter plug. There's the itrip, but i've heard they suck.

So what do all u ipod owners do? just buy that bose system so u can listen in your house and buy an fm transmitter just for your car? I wasn't planning on spending that much, but what other options are there? don't say headphones. I hate headphones.

thanks for replies.

In my house I use my computer. My radio transmitter got stolen with my old ipod, so in the car i just do Cds and radio. The cassette deck adapter for the ipod allows it to come in clearer then the radio transmitter, especially when you're listening to a very bassy track.

just save up for a stereo system that has a 3.5mm input and then buy and adapter and as for the home setup get a cheap av adapter from radioshack or a good monster quality one from best buy , then you 100% perfect quality output

if you have a cassette player in your house/car, you should definately choose the cassette adapter over shitty fm transmitters. this is because the cassette adapters have a much better sound quality, as they provide a direct, solid connection between your mp3 player and the stereo, as opposed to fm radio signals, which are often weak and make the sound quality shitty.

At home, I either use itunes or just plug your ipod into my amp with an adapter (clean channel only of course). I have an FM adapter that doesn't need to be plugged into the car, but it just runs off the ipod and drains its battery like crazy.

I have an AirPlay FM transmitter, it works fine in the car, but when I'm at home, I use my Bose speaker dock. It owns the shit out of everything else.

thanks for all of the posts, they're really helpful! I think this is the first time that everyone has actually said something helpful, instead of talking about butsecks. Thanks very much!

My car is a honda accord, and unfortunately it doesn't have a cassette player. So instead of downgrading to a different stereo system for my car, I'd rather just use a transmitter. But thanks for helping me out!

AirPlay! Thats what I've got, I just can never remember the name. Sounds good, but bad for battery.

And something else that should be added... with FM transmitters, you can jerk people around if you know what station they're listening to, and then transmitting your songs over that station. Works especially well with death metal transmitting over the top of Oldies 104.1

i bought one that plugs into the cigarette lighter in Japan for AU$16

works nicely and as opposed to a tape deck i can use it in any car with radio, not just ones with cassette decks

oh and the bass response issue doesn't happen cause i bought a creative zen Plus V
