    Can anyone suggest a fairly robust mp3 player to plug in to a Makita site radio?.
    And what type of cable would be needed for mp3 player to radio AUX socket?.

    something solid state, not disk driven.. depending on the number of files you want, someting cheap and cheerful is a better idea than a more expensive one.. you don't mind as much it someone spills a can of paint on one that cost you £20 as you do if they spill it on your Ipod touch..

    isn't an aux in just a 3.5mm stereo jack?

    Yep, just me beavering away all on my tod, one year down the line with the 2 storey extension, now well on with second fix. Wife not interested in even looking round it until it's time to spend loadsa money on the furnishings!. (doing a complete renovate/extend on end terrace for retirement.)

    ColJack, thanks for advice. I didn't actually know what an MP3 player was until yesterday when i found the radio in a second hand shop, I'm afraid I'm stuck in the sixties! In fact my old cafe racer is sitting accusingly behind me as I'm writing this, waiting to be reassembled and relive the glory days! How effing sad can you get eh?.
    Thanks again, I'd still be sitting puzzling over problems if it wasn't for the help I've had from you guys on this forum.
