I was interested.
If you bought a cheap radio, like gift shop quality, and then plugged it into some expensive top of the range speakers, what would the sound quality be like?
Would it be poor quality because of the poor radio?
Would it be good quality because of the good speakers?
Or would it be a mix of the two?

Thanks very much..

Just connect them directly. Something like this would work


That's assuming they pass through an amp

If you are only playing over FM from an iPod, it's probably not worth a high quality radio as you're limited by both the quality of the music on the iPod as well as the quality of the FM transmitter. Most of the songs mp4/mp3 songs don't have great quality (good yes, great.. no) and most FM Transmitter don't really have the frequency range to reproduce high quality music.
