--> This is a most excellent product. I find however that the price, the sound quality limitations and the power output limitations are disappointing. Worth purchasing just to make a schematic since they don't put one in the box. Furthermore, I would like to see it come with an external antenna, schematic, decent manual and free updates. I actually don't own this product, but I can' afford it at such an early stage. I'd like to see more people develop this kind of tech so prices go down. Pop this baby in a micro atx case, put in trunk plugged into invertor and backup car batteries with 2000w automobile audio amp between xmitter output and high db antenna as high as you can drive it in a car that can outrun cops with alternating broadcast times and you have an alternative to that clearchannel nastiness. They own 80 percent of the airwaves in the U.S.!
