Where can I buy? ...ancient technology...Tape cassette adaptor

need to get a 'cassette adaptor'.. yah i know.. WTH.. who the hell uses that now? its not for me..but for some girl i know who got some junker with a tape deck in it. ebay has them for about $7 shipped so most likely do that...unless there is a faster way to get them locally? wouldn't want to spend more than $5-$8 i'd think. thanks.

Best Buy<Future Shop<London Drugs<The Source in the order of increasing cost.

They're not cheap surprisingly... even though cassettes are almost a thing of the past.

Maybe a dollar store will have them... at the price you want

Some dollar store ones (for 1-1.25) are actually better than the ones off DX/ebay, e.g. no static. IIRC mine was from the dollar store next to Memory Express in Rmd, but you can check out XS Cargo which is right next door.

Edit: also check out the one on Hazelbridge way near the Mcdonalds

Cassette adapters have better sound quality than FM transmitters.

Assuming I can find it, you can have my cassette adapter for free. But we'd have to meet up either at UBC during the day, or near Oakridge Centre after work. I'll check and confirm if I have it or not this evening...
