USB stick or even better Micro SD slot if it has one, that's what I did. Just dropped all my beats onto a memory card and it lives in the stereo.

I've been toying with getting one to sit in my living room to pipe music to my stereo. It has a USB but it would ruin the aesthetic to have something sticking out of it and I think the control would be easier from a console than fiddling with the remote.

I still have a Raspberry Pi sitting underneath it as part of my plan last January to build a media streamer that would do something similar. I never got round to it when I realised I could just play BBC Sounds from my phone to get the same result.

Of course, if you are in the market for an audio player, there's always this one .

That is what I did, as my latest car does not have a CD player. Although most of the time I have spotify or podcasts.

I wish! :)

Although it sounds more like a vaudeville act.

I always loved the absolute bollocks written in What Hi-Fi and Audiophile magazine by high end hi-fi kit makers.

I copied all my purchased/downloaded music from my iPod to a USB stick easily enough and the car media player plays them and shows the titles, artist and album details.

So far, so good.

Unfortunately, that's only 278 songs out of 3307 on the iPod. All the others were either ripped from CDs or recorded off-line via Audacity and hidden away in the iTunes Library, but I haven't worked out how to copy them on to my Windows PC, which still has iTunes working on it. All the others are also in the Music app on my MacBook, but for some reason they won't drag and drop on to the USB drive. There must be a away around this, I jut have to keep looking for it.
