    You stream music through the "line in" or blue tooth in the car, in the old ddays you have a "cassette" adapter. The thing I have found with an Ipod is, even on shuffle you get bored with your music files and want to listen to something you dont have, then you have to resinc the IPOD etc.

    So, with no line in or Bluetooth it's worthless.


    Got it, thanks!

    You can buy a bluetooth receiver/adapter that gives you an audio out that you can plug into your amplifier with RCA connectors, or if you have a 3.5mm mini plug (headphone size) INPUT on your dash unit, you can get one with that fitting.
    Also very easy to convert from RCA to mini & visa-versa if needed.

      Well you could buy a Bluetooth speaker and go that route.
      I have done that in my old cars without tunes.

        Since I have Amazon Prime I use Amazon music. No ads at all. Some songs I like are on unlimited which you have to pay for I do not. So those artist can kiss my ass. I like it I can download my playlist and listen offline.

          The biggest issue with streaming music over phone is bit rate. The sound quality is not very good...

          That's why thumb drives work if you have a USB.
          I did not know it worked that way until I was at the Harley dealer and some dude told me.

          One thing I personally like about cd's is that if a computer takes a dump, you still have music.
          I guess external hard drives and thumb drives take care of that.

          Sound quality is fine streaming on my iPhone SE. Stream via Bluetooth tooth to the Alpine receivers in two different vehicles and to a Bose Wave radio in the garage, that one has a blue tooth adapter plugged into the auxiliary input.
          The sound quality on Spotify premium is great. Much better than the free Spotify or SiriusXM.

          Round here the radio SUCKS. Every station plays the same 5 songs over and over and over and over…

          With Spotify (or any of the streaming services), you can listen to music for hours without hearing the same song twice. You can pull up old and obscure music you haven’t heard for 25 years that no radio station will play. I have a personalized Waylon station, and I can’t remember the last time any of these stations played Waylon.

            Yeah I saw you disagreed with my post that I listen to the radio. Here's a clue. You cannot disagree with that because it's what I do. You can however, agree that YOU DON'T do it. See how that works? You flunked English class, didn't you?lol

              Haha, I was disagreeing with how you said it works. To me, playing the same 5 songs ALL day long does not work for me.

              I listen to Spotify and when I have no choice the radio.
              I also have a Bluetooth mp3 player that I have downloaded a few thousand songs on.
              I listen to that often as well.
              I believe each has its time and place.
              Really most radio stations blow in my opinion.

              Speaking of flunking English class, something cannot work “good.” It works “well.” :rofl::poke:

              I have an 8 Track Tape player that still works great. Plus I have quite a few tapes.

                By the way, et cetera, meaning "and so forth" is abbreviated etc. It bothers me when I see ect. I see it wrong much more often than right.

                  Know which one gets me?

                  If someone abbreviates years, like 1972 to 72'

                  There is one member on here who signs his posts like that

                  Well if you can " Grow your business"... your radio can "work good"...

                  I listen to the radio in my car only because I am too cheap and lazy to install a more modern head unit in it .
                  But in the garage I listen to Pandora etc. or Podcasts. I love old country and as mentioned already you just cant find it on the radio .
