Birthday gift: A new audio receiver for my car

Amy went to a local audio system installer and surprised me with a Pioneer DEH-X6600BT, along with an appointment.

My cassette tape adapter broke several years ago, and I didn’t want to deal with another FM transmitter. Those never worked well.

Of course, since my commute is super short (20 feet), getting an MiFi–compatible audio receiver wasn’t a priority.

Now, it’s super fun listening to the music I want, on–demand, without CDs.

I can finally enjoy Rdio in my car. If Amy and I had a long drive, I can import a movie into iTunes, sync to my iPhone, and orient the windshield mount in landscape.

Oh! There’s a small microphone mounted on my rear view mirror for phone calls via Bluetooth. If I get a phone call, I won’t need my iPhone earbuds, especially since Amy said the sound quality was really good when we tested it.

Thank you so much, Amy! 🙂

  1. Ha, I just bought my mom the FH-X700BT [[]] for Christmas because she broke the stock disc changer. She’s really happy with it. They had to mount her mic on the dash because it’s a convertible, but everything still seems to work great!
