While I crochet I like to listen to audiobooks or podcasts. I wanted to buy Sony ZS-RS60BT Boombox because you can plug your USB stick in it & listen to mp3's. I decided that I would wait on buying it for a little longer because I wanted a new Samsung BD-J5700/ZA blueray player with wifi more but I still wanted to be able to listen to my audio books & podcast so I figured out how I could do this with out spending a lot of money.
To Repurpose your boombox or house stereo all you need is a car cassette audio adapter. They use to sell them for your car cassette stereo's so that you could hook up a CD player. Well they also allow you to play your mp3 players, iPods & cell phones on your boomboxes or house stereo's. I found some @ my local dollar store for $3. I bought 2 of them because I didn't' want to keep switching them out from my boombox to my house sterio & ware out the wires on them. If you can't find one @ you local dollar store you can get one here @ Amazon.
Now I can listen to my audiobooks & podcast while I Crochet! :)
