I wanted to set up "whole home" audio around my house and yard. I didn't want some "toy" transmitter that goes 30 feet - I need a good signal out to a couple hundred feet. I ordered the Fail-Safe recently as it was on sale for $99.95. Though it was supposedly back-ordered a month away, I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived in about a week. I opened the package and was on-air within 5 minutes. It does everything it claims to do, and I am quite pleased.

The unit is quite compact - not much bigger than a bar of bath soap. The Xmtr looks a lot like the HLLY units you can find online, and like the HLLY, this one is Chinese-made, despite Fail-Safe's claims of "American made." In truth, they are "American sold." These are generic transmitters mass-produced overseas sold by numerous companies around the globe. That being said, I still chose the Fail-Safe over the lower-cost HLLY and others due to the good reviews about Fail-Safe's tech support. Nice to know I can call somebody in Indiana if I have a question or concern. Better to pay $100 and have domestic support than to pay $60 and give your credit card info to some guy in Guangzhou.

I set up the Xmtr in my home, at ground floor level, perhaps 6' height above average terrain (HAAT). I connected the antenna, plugged in the power supply, turned it on, set freq to an empty channel and connected my mp3 player. I set the power to low (100mW) and turned on radios around the house. The signal was rock-solid with very good fidelity. There is a small amount of noise in the signal, likely due to the switch-mode power supply. The noise is only apparent between songs, or when the music is very soft. Most of my music is very dynamic, so it won't be an issue.

I got in the car and drove around the neighborhood.

Ordered on March 2nd and received on March 4th. Quick shipping! I found on the net through reading about similar transmitters that the power output is actually adjustable. To adjust the power from .500 watt to .100 of a watt. Here's all you need to do: Push in and hold the power on button then plug in the power cord the LCD will read "H" by using the frequency up & down buttons you can switch to "L" then unplug the power cord, then plug it back in and power on and now your broadcasting at low power which is perfect for working in the yard & around the house. Thanks Amazon :)

Stop if your looking for a good qaulity FM transmitter, look no further. I live in a City accross from Detroit, MI. Where alot of music stations are powerfull.
I got this Unit and right out of the box, WOW. I set it to 87.7 and I got in my car and drove blocks and the radio station was still playing my source, (ipod).
I tried others and found them weak, and fade in and out, but not this guy, good sound al over my house. So if your in a market for a FM transmitter this is the one.

Shipping was great, 2 days to get unit.

Very happy....

The unit transmits three times the power it states. I measured my version 1.2.3 unit purchased in May 2012 at 320 mW in low and 1.5 Watts in high, the specs state it should be 100 mW and 0.5 Watts respectively. When the unit was in low power (320 mW) I could pick up the station 1.5 miles away via my car antenna. This was surprising as the unit was transmitting via the inferior "rubber ducky" antenna and was inside a wood-frame building. I did not test the range of the high power but would guess it's more like 2.5 miles.

This higher power may be seen as a plus but as you know the FCC regulates your Part 15 FM Transmitter output much lower than this. If you mess with a licensed signal and they report you to the FCC a field mobile unit will drive by your home, direction find you, and then send you a notice to stop in the mail. If you don't follow their instructions they typically fine you $10,000. They do this to pirate stations 60 to 120 times a year and typically to the major offenders, but still, it's our government being our government. If you do a search for, "fcc field issued citations" you'll find these notices of apparent liability they send out with fines. Also, as of this review transmitting out of Part 15 is a felony in New Jersey, Florida, and New York, meaning it's not just a civil fine it's a criminal on your record sort of thing. I don't mean to ruin anyones fun or freedom here since I don't agree with FCC's rules on micro power FM Transmitting but I do want to make everyone aware of how things stand with the said enforcement authorities today.

I'd recommend you buy a "50 ohm 10 db BNC attenuator" from eBay to knock this unit down to the 20 mW transmit range. If you really want to be confident stack a 10 db with a 3 or 6 db or try a 20 db.

All I can say is WOW! This is the best low cost FM Transmitter money can buy. I have tried several other FM Transmitters including the CCrane that can be modified to increase its range. This one simply blows them all away right out of the box. And I mean that literally.

If you are looking for a FM Transmitter, buy this one.

Shipping was fast.

Thanks guys for a super product.
