What I'm saying is that a tablet has no advantage to storing and playing music over your smartphone.

The FM transmitter I linked has a stereo input, so you can use the 2.5mm "headphone" jack on your phone to connect a standard stereo cable to it. Then just tune it to an unused FM station. It costs $16. Don't know why you'd not use bluetooth though.

A new head unit with HD radio and bluetooth functions as well as stereo inputs might run as little as $50. The cheapest tablet I've seen was the LG G-pad for about $60.

If you're determined to own a tablet, go for it, but that isn't cheapest solution to the problem playing saved tracks on your old stereo.
