I'm pretty sure it would work, but why not bring headphones to lan parties?

My car has a stereo (the receiver part) it looks like it would fit in the comp drive, I always thought about taking it out and putting it in the comp to see what would happen.

they dont have inputs as i have found out though , so it wouldnt do much good. im looking into some other things though, the idea seems really fun i might have to get a cheap Full ATX case though if i want to throw an amp in there\receiver, would be HEAVY but it would give me a work out. would add to the cost, but i have a great old receiver right now, although im borrowing it as its my dad's, since my mom "gave" me the speakers to it as they were really dirty and ugly. i basically "stole" them from my dad

http://www.hauppauge.com/pages/compare/compare_usb.html The one with the fm radio built in.
The sound plays through the computer's sound card. Only thing you need then is a good set of speakers.

Here's the pci card version.

just be careful, as the fm radio waves could interfere with the computer. especially if you use the case as an antenna.

well there is a difference between running a radio next to it and inside of it, I don't know if it would interfere, probaly not, but I do know that radio signals can interfere with electronics if they are strong enough.

Well that's a pretty large head unit, looks like a 6 disc cd changer that you put in the back of the car. The universal size is the same as 5 1/4 If I am correct. If not, case modding time

thats not a 6 disc changer it is a single slot cd player. Usa must have smaller stereos than here in australia because i have never seen one that would fit in a drive bay here in australia.
