Audio cassette recorders and induction loops

It is possible to plug a neck loop into the audio(earphone) output of an audio 
cassette player. Good "T" coils are necessary, but the quality will still be 
limited by the hearing loss, and the interactive characteristics of the loop and 
"T" coil. Still, while it produces a diotic and not a diochotic signal, it sounds 
pretty good to me (compared to the alternative!). You can get a stereo sensation 
by using silhoutte inductors with an adapater (one to two) from radio shack. But 
often this produces a lot of distortion. Or you can try to use the same adapter 
for a direct audio input into the two aids (if you have a BTE aid with this 
feature).
