 The Radio Shack Bluetooth Cassette Adapter #1201526







 Ok, I was anxious to try this approach as I have a number of cars with
the original AM/FM Cassette radio that works fine. FM programming leaves
a lot to be desired, and who doesn't have a MP3 device/Smartphone with
all the stuff you personally like.

 The corded units work just fine, but a Bluetooth version is the real answer.

 In this video I have used my 1985 El Camino and it's original AM/FM Cassette
radio that is in "typical" condition. It's a little scratchy and ordinarily
sounds a bit dull sending music to it's original speakers.

 I have pared my iPhone 5S, running Sky FM ("free" sound quality level) to
the adapter via Bluetooth.

 So here are the results...

 A big thumbs up in my book!
