Advantages: Clear Sound In Most Areas, Makes Old Stereos Useful Again
Disadvantages: Short Transmit Range, No Release Buttons
This is a fantastic piece of technology which has made me use my iPod even more, I didn't think that would really be possible.
The transmitter connects to your iPod and after being tuned to the same wavelength as your stereo (car/home) allows your iPod music and playlists to be played through said stereo.
It is very easily connected to your iPod and tuned. My only concern was that there are no release buttons for disconnecting, these release buttons are on all iPod accessories I own and I don't really like the idea of just pulling the transmitter out.
The sound is great but can be interfered with if you have other analogue systems in the house. E.g if I am using the transmitter downstairs and someone has the radio on upstairs it sometimes comes through in the background of the music. Another downside is through the valleys in the car, areas renowned for 'no radio signal' affect the sound quality when using the device in cars.
The distance that it will clearly transmit is quite short and I often leave the iPod on top of the stereo or car dashboard to get the best signal and sound. The downside to this is running down the stairs to the stereo every time that I want to change a song whilst I'm cleaning upstairs.
The device varies in price through the country with companies such as Argos retailing it at £20+. I feel that this is overpriced for the unit and found a supplier in the UK that was selling them for brand new at £5 making it a fantastic bargain and definitely the best gadget that I've bought probably since my iPod itself.
