It really is a great little unit. Charges your iPhone or iPod, has its own headphone out if you want to use it, and I use it to feed its DAC signal into my vintage amps. Much improved over just iPhone unto same amps, using the LOD and not headphone out. I use it in conjunction with a iPhone base holder to keep it upright and visible.

This makes me feel old:

I watched that whole thing on mute at work and found it amazingly entertaining. I can only imagine what they're saying and I'm sure it would make me feel old too.

Remember when you'd see all those strung out tapes on the sides of the roads? They'd get eaten by the deck in the car and then tossed out the windows..... ah the good old days.

In Sydney?

Those kids wouldn't last 5 minutes in the 80's. I used to walk around with a Walkman practically 24/7 in my teenage years. I used to have a dozen cassettes in my school bag and a couple of extra sets or rechargeable batteries. I remember my Sony Sport cost me 240 bucks back in the day and my parents almost had a hear attack when they found out I had spent so much of my summer job money on a Sony Sport Walkman. My old Sony Walkman which my folks had given to me two years earlier for doing so well in school was relegated to tooling around the house use. Those were the days. I also feel pretty old right now.

We were mixtape junkies when I was in school. I had 100s of them.

I took great pride in my mix tapes and later CDs....I was the only one I knew that put in the effort to roughly level match the volume of them track to track (no ReplayGain back then). Everybody at work would be running back and forth to adjust the volume at each song's start, but not me.:L3000:

Blind or no, I'd like to taste-test-sample this!

I was born too late for mix tapes. I made mix CD-Rs. First it was just to condense my collection down to fewer discs. Then I tried on numerous occasions to span all the tracks I liked from my collection across several dozen discs, in alphabetical order. This never worked because I kept getting new music, which had to go on the end. Finally I got an iPod and ditched CDs altogether. I still kind of miss some of the interesting, organic combinations that came out of that scheme. For instance, Grand Funk Railroad, Elton John, and Journey all ended up on the same disc one time. You can't plan these kinds of things.

tape was not my era but I came to CD world way late, I live with the cassette till I made the move to the mp3.
