Default Feed Internet Radio to Boombox?

Please Login to Remove!

Even though I pride myself on my geekness, I had never really embraced internet radio and Pandora. I had XM radio on my car for about a year and ended up thinking it was lame.

So, I ended up trying Slacker Radio and diggin it and was also willing to pay for the Premium service.

I tried driving Slacker through my phone -> USB cable-> to an MP3 boombox in my bedroom but it did not work. Has anyone figured out a solution for this. Basically to improve the output quality versus headphones (which sound great btw).

TIA.

The way I do it is.....if your radio has a line in spot then get a RCA cord that fits in to the headphone spot on the phone and then plug the other end into the line in spot on your radio. Works great for me.

Thanks Dude....you inspired me once I realized it was do-able and easy. I went to Radio Shack and bought this cord for $4 and I am good to go.

If you really want to do it in style, there is an OEM BlackBerry accessory that lets you do it over Bluetooth. Instead of patching in the phone to the speakers (requiring your phone to be within breathing room of the speakers and possibly causing interference in them), you patch in the Bluetooth device and pair the Bluetooth device to the phone. No tether. No possible interference. And, ONLY music is pushed to the speakers, not your ringtones or inbound calls.
