Re: RF modulated CD players?

Hi Scott,

I don't know the exact figures, but the frequency range covered by FM is
somewhere in the region of 80-15,000 Hz. The range covered by CD is more
like 20-20,000 Hz. Using a CD player that plays back via FM would lop off
all beyond the FM specs, making it sound like... a radio transmission. A
good one, with little static (at least I hope so) but no more than that.

What would be the point of a CD player then? Tapes would sound as good, if
not better! There's nothing that beats a good old wire connected CD chager
(or an in-dash CD unit). I like CD for its wonderful deep bass and
immensely clear high- if the recording engineer has done his job correctly,
at least, but that's another story.

Subject: RF modulated CD players?

I'm wondering if anyone has had experiance with the RF modulated CD
players playing through the Audi/BOSE system.  Does it actually sound as
clear as a normal CD player?  What things should I watch for?
