"Very fun, but some limitations"3.5 stars
Pros: Great audio clarity
Cons: May have problems in car radio for major metros
Summary: iTrip FM transmitter run time:
Seems to run about 4-5 hours on a fully
charged iPod at 3/4 volume setting.
Other notes: The more remote you are on the
highway, the less interference from other signals;
the better the sound.
Sometimes the 'fit' of the attachment isn't perfect
and you have to give it a 'love tap' on the
left corner of the iTrip to set it in place.
I'm impressed with the sound quality whether it's
on my car radio or on the reference system
in my home. I use full AIFF files, as opposed, it
MP3. I was astonished at the resolution via
the FM signal when compared to the same
audio file being played, via CD,
through a $ 1,500 CD player. It maintained
at least 80 % of the audio quality. That is amazing
and explains why Stereophile magazine loves
this little gem of a player.
Lastly, I still haven't gotten it to program a
different frequency. I haven't gotten the three
quick flashes yet, it's probably just me.Updated
You MUST have tyhe iPod volume at
atleast 3/4 max or the signal is not
strong enough. Alternatively, at
maximum volume you begn to get
distortion. This is a significant
