I know I could run my phone into the tape deck, but that sounds crappy.
i would highly suggest against a tape deck aswell. I ran a tape deck to mp3 b4 and it was unbearable.
As far as your plan as cheap as decent decks are nowadays i would still buy a new 1, but if you plan on getting the amp anyway it would be cheap enough to at least try out your plan.

i'm unsure on what speakers you are using aswell, but i would make sure they are of good quality as i've blown a lot of factory speakers with just the headunit let alone amping the speakers
