Discover the freedom of sending a wireless broadcast of any audio to any FM radio anywhere in your home, car or office! The FM Transmitter 2 uses FM radio waves to send sound from any device you choose to any nearby radio or stereo system. The only wire you have to connect is from the FM Transmitter to the headphone jack. It's as simple as that. Since the Transmitter works with any device that has a headphone jack, you can use it with your iPhone, Wi-Fi internet radio and even satellite radio. One of the unsung qualities of C. Crane's Digital FM Transmitter 2 is its extreme versatility. While most people use it to send music from their computers or MP3 players to a nearby radio, some customers have told us how they use it with their guitars, portable DVD players or iPod (a lot of fun in cars) and even other radios. It is perhaps the only FM Transmitter with adjustable audio input so it can handle virtually any level of audio input. Though the original model had a reputation as perhaps the best FM transmitter around, the FM Transmitter 2 is even better. It broadcasts cleaner audio with higher fidelity and at a lower price. The side mount thumbwheel allows you to adjust the input for perfect quality and an LED indicator for overload. One customer told us she plugs the FM Transmitter into her TV, and sends the audio to a small radio she keeps by her ear. Many health clubs use it to broadcast music to motivate workout routines. AC adapter included, or use 2 optional "AA" batteries. Our FM Transmitter is one of the few transmitting devices available that is FCC compliant. Choose any FM frequency between 88.3 MHz and 107.7 MHz Portable, fits in the palm of your hand. Weight: 5.8 oz. Size 3" W x 3.5" H x 1" D. (Patent # US D483,024S)

Next, my rig. First, I live in a single level home, so I centrally located the unit, placed on my fridge (get it as high as possible). I use the AC adapter, and I use my laptop for a source as opposed to my phone. The reason for the laptop is because quite frankly it should be a better "music source" sonically than a phone will be. For me, it keeps background FM hiss to a minimum in comparison to my phone and tablet. You will have to adjust both the source volume as well as the input on the unit to the highest level where the peak LED stays in the green so you will not clip your sound. This will take some time to find the sweet spot, and expect to use your amplifier volume a bit higher than normal.
Lastly, I know most people nowadays won't be able to do this, but for me it worked best. When searching for a frequency in your area, go to https://radio-locator.com/cgi-bin/vacant and plug in your zip code. Look for a couple frequencies next to each other that are "BEST!" on the results you get. For me, I had both 89.9 and 90.1 available. However, I have old school analog tuners that can tune into any FM frequency. So I set the FM2 to 90.0 - which seems to work much better than 89.9 or 90.1. There's no broadcast station in the US that uses 90.0...so it seems that at least for me, I get the most quiet tuning capability doing exactly that - with practically zero hiss or adjacent station artifacts. For those that don't have an analog tuner, look for 3 in succession (for example 89.9, 90.1 and 90.3 - pick the middle freq).
Anyway, this is what worked best for me. My 3 stereo rigs are roughly 20 to 30 feet away from the unit, and the sound quality is for what we're actually doing here, excellent. I noticed while driving my car away from home, I was able to pick the broadcast up for roughly 150 yards (my Chinese aftermarket in-dash tunes in ".1" steps, not ".2"). If I had to wish for anything in future versions, it would be that the antenna is at the very least twice the length (I have read some people have clipped a wire onto the end, hanging it straight up - to get better gain/range/quality), as well as wishing the transformer and audio cables were also twice as long to isolate the unit from the source. But overall, with a little effort and positioning trial/error...this thing is a pretty sweet piece of equipment for the price. Quite frankly, I didn't expect it to work/sound THIS good.
This is also a great solution when one person wants to read while another wants to watch TV in the same room. The TV watcher listens through the headset, while the built-in TV speaker volume is muted so the reader can do so in a silent room. A win-win situation!
Out of the box the range is awful. I performed the so-called 'mod,' which is nothing more than opening the case, adjusting a small dial with a screwdriver, and closing the case. Very simple and also reversible. Now the range is incredible.
A feature I'm impressed with is the volume control which allows you to adjust the incoming audio level so it won't overload the transmitter and distort the sound. A LED changes color from green to red to indicate an overload. Also you can use any of the frequencies available in the entire FM band. Very useful for large cities with lots of FM stations.
An adapter is included with left and right RCA plugs so no need to purchase that separately. Also included is an AC adapter.

I received the FM2 on time, in original packaging, with all OEM instructions, registrations, etc..
As to performance of the FM2:
I live in southwestern British Columbia. Terrain,(mountains,valleys, even time of day, will affect FM transmission. Add to those variables - my area also has local interference from strong broadcasters from Northwest Washington State (not a bad thing - depending on ones listening choices).
I could not find a "clean" FM channel - so I chose the weakest (still receiving weak signal - 90.3 FM). The FM2 was good - it easily provided a clean signal to all FM radios on the same floor - my home is 3 levels on a steep hill. Keep in mind - I am severely challenged with FM reception from FM broadcasts from towers more on my "plane" - regardless of my choice.
I read about the available "tweak" (undocumented, yet available. Thank you, C.Crane) and it is AMAZING!
All three levels in my home now have excellent reception.
I installed it in my car (on AA battery power) - and I am able to drive throughout the lower mainland with NO interference.
I'm a HAM radio guy, and I appreciate conservative claims, possible adjustments, excellent results.
And ... if you want to see what the FM2 has coped with, just goto to
