Ok well adding to my previous comment, MP3 quality is the least of your worries, you're never going to get great sound in a car simply due to the lack of acoustics. It's simple and it's to do with the way sound travels. The speakers aren't mounted in a way that would produce ideal acoustics and well the car isn't shaped in a way to provide ideal acoustics. So when you start arguing about the quality of an MP3, it's kinda ridiculous because if you were going for quality, you'll never really reach it.Well we all have different ears and opinions and theories. But suffice to say the technology is all about smaller and better.
Oh yes ive pressed the record button to in a studio once!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yeah I have mate, I am going with an iRiver!! I just zoned out from the arguing haha! Thanks to everyone who contributed!Why can't you achieve sound quality in a car? Just because your midbass drivers are generally off axis to you when listening, dosen't mean you can't build something that sounds good. Speaker placement, while crucial, is just one small factor when dealing with an install.It dosen't matter what type of enviroment your dealing with , whether it be a car, home, boat ect, there are always going to be issues with the room accoustics.But if you can change something, even something small,(such as the source input) and get an imrpovement, then it all helps.
Anyway's OP, have you made a decision on which type of player your going to buy?
I was about to say, I use my N95 exactly the same way, 8 GB music, phone calls come in over the stereo (mutes the music) and GPS, works pretty well for me.I use my HTC Magic when the musics:rockon: and a phone call comes in
it switches the call through to the speakers then back to music when the call is over
hands free :w00t:
