Im throwing together a little budget system for my girlfriends new car, and I'm looking for some input on the auxilary jack's that are commonly on newer HU's now.

Her car is green, so i was looking at this:


Anyways, i see that it has the 3.5mm auxilary jack on the front of it, which she would like to have with her ipod (without having to buy the whole interface adaptor, which she wouldnt like using anyways)

Do these auxilary inputs have okay sound quality in comparison to the interface module? I mean, it doesnt have to be the best, but i dont want it sounding like *****.

mines not horrible. I kinda like being able to search through my ipod instead of my hu. I dont notice the audible differnce between mine and a freinds with ipod interface, but it was a good while ago before he got comps.

Myn works good. Its definitely not cd quality, but most people who aren't into audio won't notice.
