I've posted before that my mini shelf 3 cd disc changer has finally died and quit playing discs. The radio and speakers still work great and I don't want and really can't afford to purchase a new system. I already have a 3.5mm line in cord that works with the Audio in jack on the system--I tried it with my Iphone already. Sorry for the long winded post but I am trying to find the cheapest way to be able to play all my CDs--currently burning to the computer-when I sleep. I am having trouble deciding which ipod to purchase. I don't need an Ipod Touch..I have an iphone and rmini. I just need a simple ipod to play music at night while I sleep...so good battery life is needed at least 6-7 hours. So far I have about 180 MB...so 16 GB is overkill really. How good is the Ipod Shuffle? What about the 6 Gen Nanos? Thanks for any suggestions. I did try the search feature but couldn't find exactly what I was looking for.
