    Default Connect MP3 to NCDC 2013 ??

    As I'm fed up with listening to CDs, what FM transmitter would you recommend to connect my MP3 player (cheapo 2GB with just a mini USB connection) to my NCDC 2013?

    As the NCDC 2013 doesn't have an auxillary input jack feature, the FM transmitter needs to be totally wireless.

    Any ideas guys?

    Try searching for 'transmitter'.

    There are any number of FM transmitters, but they will most likely connect via the headphone socket not usb.

    Doh, silly me, I do have a headphone socket on the MP3. Now I'm on the right lines?

    Thanks mate. So on this one http://www.amazon.co.uk/Belkin-Tunec.../dp/B000F37GOU, I'm guessing the mini jack shown in the pic goes to my MP3? Then it's simply a matter of tuning the Belkin to a spare FM channel?

    There are plenty WAY cheaper than that, like the ebay one in my link, or this one.

    But yes, mostly though you tune the radion to one of a limited number of transmitter frequencies. The more you pay, usually the more channels you get.

    I was thinking of Belkin as my daughter's boyfriend has one and says there's little or no interference.

    D'you think in the case of FM tansmitters, "you get what you pay for" or is the chaepie worth a punt?
