So, work's getting me a van to use daily instead of my own car. I might be in it 2-3 days per week. I've used a colleague's van of the same type and the sound system doesn't even pass the basic level of fisher-price toy sound quality. It sounds like the music is piped through a telephone, regardless of settings I still use my own car's sound system because although it isn't exactly hi-fi, it does get the basics right across the frequencies so it is listenable if unexciting. I know; 1st world problems and all that, but bearing in mind I cannot change the sound system in my work's vehicle, what to do !? What are other people's 'coping strategies' in similar situations? I am a hug hifi snob in that listening to music in ultra-low-fi mode actually makes me feel like my ears are being polluted and the music is being ruined for me. Help ! Has anyone heard of any kind of portable in-car audio that can be placed in the vehicle without installation ?
