Even set at 0.1 watt it transmits a full 54 db signal to my receiver about 100 feet away through a brick wall.

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 :)

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.

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....

This transmitter sounds great, good stereo and fidelity. But, it has no internal over modulation protection, so you can easily get a 'loud sound' from it on your radio, but you will be grossly over modulating the unit, and thus out of any sort of FCC modulation compliance, and easily identifiable by FCC as needing a technical visit. I'm saying this for US based users.

As best I can tell, the input audio stage of this transmitter must be carefully adjusted along with the careful adjustment of an external 'hard limiter' device to keep your audio from severely over modulating the transmitter.

If you adjust this transmitter's audio input (front panel) using your radio to get a loud signal 'just below distortion' you will be guaranteed to be in violation of FCC modulation rules for FM.

The manufacturer should have built in a 'brick wall' limiter to prevent this, but they didn't do that.

Be careful. You will notice that FM modulation monitors cost a lot of money, and that the manufacturer of this transmitter offers no modulation monitoring or 'over modulation' indicator on the unit, nor do they offer external FM modulation monitoring equipment for purchase.

If you live in an urban area this will be more of a problem than if you live in the middle of nowhere, but all it will take is one FCC scan of your transmitter's modulation and that could result in a visit and a fine.

This unit is made in China. They leave staying out of trouble totally up to you. If you have an FM tuner with a MPX output, you can add a home brew monitor to it to check your modulation, or you can find a broadcaster who will help you with their 20,000 dollar spectrum analyzer to verify your modulation and power level.

Word to the wise.
