Tech-Approved Deal: Digital FM Transmitter

Many people want to send sound from a connected device to a nearby FM radio or stereo. For some of them, Bluetooth isn’t an option. There is an option for these folks: the Full Spectrum Digital FM Transmitter 2, or FM2, from C. Crane. All you have to do is connect the FM2 to your device’s 3.5mm headphone jack. This lets you send music from your computer or MP3 player to a nearby radio or stereo. The result is clean, very high-fidelity stereo audio.

Usually, when I do one of these stories, I talk to a Solid Signal tech. They give me the details about why you need this product. This time around, I’m going to take the place of the tech and recommend this product. There’s a good reason for this: I’ve already bought a C. Crane full spectrum digital FM transmitter 2 for a family member. She loves it, and I have a hunch that you will too.

Why I Bought an FM Transmitter…

… It’s all my mom’s fault. Okay, it’s not really her “fault,” per se. I wanted to do something nice for her and I knew she wanted to listen to the music on her phone’s playlist in her car and at home. The problem was that she drove a 2005 Saturn at the time and it doesn’t have a cassette deck, Bluetooth, or headphone input. (This lack of tech savvy clearly runs in the family.)

I got her an FM radio transmitter that was NOT made by C. Crane. As you might imagine, Mom wasn’t happy with the way it performed because it was of a very poor quality. I didn’t blame her. I took the cheap way out and re-learned the time-honored lesson of “You get what you pay for.” I mentioned my problem to a few of the techs here at Solid Signal and they all said the same thing: “Get a C. Crane FM2.”

I then bought the FM2 and I was very happy with it. More importantly, Mom loved it, too. C. Crane uses high-quality parts to make this very high-quality device. Mom found it very easy to use and she often switches it between her car radio and home stereo. Now she can listen to all the Barbara Streisand songs she wants… just not when I’m visiting her. That just triggers some bad childhood memories. (The Yentl soundtrack is an absolute dog from beginning to end, IMHO.)

An FM Transmitter and More
