iPod in car with Fiio E11
I haven't really posted in this section before, but I've just managed to installl an "Aux" input into the stereo system in my car, so that I could get a hard-wirde connection for my ipod (I got fed up with the awful fm transmitter solutions that are available - why do they bother?).
Anyway, managed via various car forums, to swap in-boot radio unit (bm54) to get the version that has potential for aux input, and by the end of Saturday had ipod music coming out of the stereo - hooray!
However, the volume is significantly lower than the radio or CD, even when the ipod source is at full volume. Big problem when switching between sources and potentially distracting on the move.
So more trawling on the interweb, and I've plumped for a Fiio portable headphone amp solution, in two parts - Fiio E11 plus a line out cable from the bottom (non-headphone) big connector output. to put between the ipod and the aux input.
There don't seem to be any reviews here of the Fiio E11 - so hopefully my feedback (when I get it) will help others in similar situation.
I should get the Fiio in a couple of days, so fingers crossed.
