Like others, I am ripping all my CD collection into MP3's for those long travels away from home (whilst preserving high quality, I have been able to capture my CD collection of about 320 discs onto30 MP3 CD's which are all nicely catalogued, and grouped by genre, for hours of listening pleasure). For me the challenge was how to approach the playback, as I already have high quality sound systems in both the car and the van, though neither incorporate an MP3 facility. The solution appears to be using a small FM Transmitter which connects directly to any portable MP3 player (or PC, or any other audio device), and you can then tune your radio in to one of 3 channels, and presto, good quality playback without any expensive upgrades. Cost is $50, see my item under "How Much Do You Pull" for more details and picture. I will re-post with comments on the quality once I try it out, but for $50 there's (hopefully) not much to lose.

I can now confirm that this device works very well.

Yup, I'm back after 580+ km cycling from Mt. Hotham to Mornington. Nine days of hell and fun! Regarding MP3, which player do you have? I just purchased the iPod 40GB. It will hold 10,000 songs and has a line out. Loaded it with 2500 songs and used it while cycling this past nine days and worked like a charm with a Sony traveler speaker. Does go through batteries. Cheers, Jay

Jay, Am currently loading all my CDs to a 40Gb iPod. You're right - it does drain batteries quickly. How did you recharge while on the bike ride? (the iPod , I mean)

Life's too short to drink bad wine.

Hi Pete Didn'! Used the Belkin battery pack for the iPod. Worked very well. Bought Duracells in bulk - much cheaper to buy the 16 pack from Office Works. Ahh the cost of entertainment! Cheers, Jay
