Next in line for the Smithsonian


Part of getting older is remembering bygone technology. We went from vinyl records to 8 tracks to audio cassettes to CDs to iPods. I grew up when audio cassettes were big. When the CD came along, people weren't necessarily quick ...

Works well, no noise aside from the music

Cord gets tangled (as expected), may be useless in a few years

Sony CPA 9C Car Audio Cassette Adapter


Maybe I should have waited longer to write this review, but so far this cassette adapter works great. I did a comparo with a friend's FM transmitter, and this adapter has noticeably better sound quality. If you own a cassette player, don't even...

I wanted to play my new iPod in my car. I bought an iTrip (FM Transmitter) and was disapointed - sent it back. Found out some are better than others but none are very good. Tried a real old Panasonic cassette adapter that I had and it was real noisy,...

I bought this adapter in order to enjoy my Apple iPod while on the road. I was prepared for some degradation in sound quality compared to playing CDs through the same Toyota Camry sound system. To my surprise, the difference in sound quality between a...

Tried 3 FM transmitters and had problems with all. This is much less expensive, great sound, no stations to find or switch to make it work, no lost signal. If you have a tape deck this is the ONLY way to go with an ipod.

Able to plug in a cell phone and use slacker, pandora, etc. Also works for my ipod and allows full control of it. Very inexpensive and far better sound quality than the FM transmitter route.

Sony CPA 9C Car Audio Cassette Adapter


This item seems to be an older model because it references Walkman CD and MD players instead of mp3 players. I got it because I thought it would be better than the cheap one I got but it clicks almost as noisily as the cheaper one. Sound is good.

Consumer review by: robert (



I am kind of stuck with this item. I bought a sony car personal cd adapter kit, which uses this component. I have been through 4 in less than 5 months, but it is still less expensive than replacing our tape player with a cd changer. It is annoying to...
