Get an ipod and a cassette adaptor. Sound is awesome and this way you can
have ALL of you music with you wherever you go vs having to burn yet more
CD's

I've found that having a car stereo that can read MP3 files off of a CD-R
disk works well enough for me. Sure, FLAC support would be ideal, but with
road and vehicle noise, MP3 quality is sufficient for me.
You can get a CD player that supports MP3 for under $150, if you look
around, and any stereo that costs more than $250 should have it.

Don't forget a 12v power adapter. Bummer when the batteries die.
