Yes, your memory is ok. It has also AMS (automatic music search), MPX Filter and Auto Cal (calibrates the tape when recording). I have bought that about 1995.

By the way, I remembered the garage cassette player wrong, it is Telefunken, not Blaupunkt. :D

I used to love doing mix-tapes and compilations, but it doesn't have quite the same romance anymore. Not when computers are involved.

Yeah, pressing "Shuffle" isn't quite the same :(

Most of my music comes out of my BlackBerry Z30.

I'm currently loading it up with most of my music collection as I just don't get the chance to listen to music at home. Kids and family seem to consistently make sure that I get told to turn it down regularly.

I'm hoping that some time when they're older I'll be able to go out and treat myself to a decent street system (if they still make them by then!).

In the mean time I have a crappy stereo in the car that doesn't play CDs properly so I have something similar to an iTrip - a Jabra Cruiser 2 (hugely recommended) which lets me connect the BlackBerry to the thing and transmits to the radio on FM.

At work I pop the ear buds in and hope that I get left alone :). Depending on my mood it's either the phone or Spotify.

But ultimately, you've got to "feel" the music. It needs to be loud and you near the hear the nuances.

I can't wait for that again :)
