The 1980’s marked a significant change in car audio system,for this was the year when CDs are introduced and became the prime meansof recording. Since being introduced to the home market in the 1980s,CDs have become the most popular method of recording and circulatingmusic. Tape decks were immediately replaced by CD players which improvedthe way people store recorded music including higher quality audio thatdoesn’t depreciate even after a long time.

But unlike their older cassette cousins, CDs are not that easy to recordon. Special hardware and a keen knowledge in computers are required,and the blank media is rather hard to come by. Another problem is thatof cross compatibility. With the number of manufacturers and subtlevariations in media format doubling by the day, not to mention stepstaken by recording companies to curb piracy, most older CD players areprogrammed to read only original recordings and have difficulty readingCD-Rs or CR-RWs.

The massive production of music in CD format largely influenced thetrend in car audio system. Most cars that are produced after the transitionfrom tapes to CDs are equipped with CD or DVD players that will playalmost all kinds of CD-Rs and CD-RWs. You can also install a CD playerin your old car, which will roughly cost you from £80 to £150,varying according to the features that you wish to include in your system.

If you feel that upgrading your car audio system’s analogue cassetteplayer to a digital disc player is a bit too costly for you, a CD-to-cassetteadapter will do the trick. All you need is a portable CD player or Walkmanand an adapter that you will connect to the cassette deck using a wired-plasticdummy tape. And voila, you can now play CD using your old car analogaudio speaker system. The adapter also enables playing Mini-discs andMP3 without the hassle of upgrading your car’s audio system.
