Re: Installing stereo help

Yes, Bluetooth has obsoleted the CD the same way that 8tracks, cassettes, 33-vs-78...the whole long line of dead technology. It also costs manufacturers way less to put a $5 bluetooth chip in a stereo, than to waste space and money and moving parts putting in a cd or tape player. That stuff is still perfectly good, and arguably bt isn't cd quality, but in the real world if you aren't buying into bt already, you're roadkill.

And oddly enough the folks at Apple have never updated their iPod classic to offer bt with it. That's the only pocket player to offer a 160GB hard drive, which is enough for about 2500 full albums in very high quality.

A decent car stereo, am/fm/bt no discs, can be found for $50 these days.
