I agree. I just got the iTrip mini, and it has been great when playing music. The occasional hiss in an area like DC has not been a bother. But listening to audio books has been a bit disappointing to a degree. It is like listening to Am depending on the area I am in.robbieduncan said:I've got an iTrip too. The sound quality is OK as long as you don't expect it to sound better than normal FM. The problem I have is finding a spare frequency to use that does not change all the time. In and around London it's so bad the whole thing is basically useless.
Depending on your ears, in a word yes.Jdm_rsx said:taped ones are usually better?
sorry for diggin up an old thread but like most ppl said SEARCH!
any idea where i can buy one of this and cost?slipper said:if you have a cassette player, use a cassette adapter. if you only have a CD player then i recommend the Monster Cable iCar Play Plus. Its by far the best, but one of the more expensive units. The other FM transmitters take signal from the mini stereo jack whereas the iCar Play Plus takes the signal from the dock connector so its a lot less prone to distortion.

I believe so, yes. You certainly can't buy them from stores based in the UK. I think its because they could interfere with the emergency services frequency, although that's probably not the actual reason. I'm sure someone else will know the real reason though.Sol said:By the way, aren't FM transmitters illegal in England?
It's covered under the Wireless and Telegraphy Act, 1949 - so it's more a technicality than fear it'll interfere with emergency services.shortyman said:I believe so, yes.
