Wireless Music Adapter for your iPAQ

New features and functionality broaden the product line and ensure plenty of choice for consumer

First International Digital, Inc. (FID), maker of the popular irock! family of digital audio devices and the leader in FM transmitter technology, on November 1 introduced its newest series of Beamit wireless music adapters, the 440FM and 450FM.

Beamit allows users to wirelessly broadcast music from portable audio devices to the car or home’s FM stereo and is compatible with any MP3 player, including Apple iPods, laptops, and CD, mini-disc, and tape players.

440FM: One-piece, 12 Volt Operation

For the first time, the 440FM features a built-in cigarette lighter power adapter, enabling truly battery-free operation. The device conveniently plugs into the car’s 12VDC cigarette lighter socket and the headphone or lineout jack of the audio device. Twelve channels of digital tuning allows users to choose the best FM frequency for the clearest reception of high-fidelity, full stereo sound.

The 440FM measures 3.2″ x 2″ x 1.4″ and offers 90 degree swivel action, enabling users to adjust the device’s position for best viewing of the backlit LCD display. The device’s MSRP is $29.99.

450 FM: 100 Channel Digital Tuning Equals Crystal-Clear Reception

The lightweight, uniquely designed 450FM, measuring a compact 3.2″ x 0.9″ x 0.9″, plugs into the headphone jack of any portable audio device and sends high-fidelity, full stereo sound to your favorite FM stereo. The device is powered by 1 AAA battery, but also features optional battery-free operation, when used with the included 12VDC auto adapter.

With 100 channel digital tuning and a signal distortion of less than 0.2 percent, the 450FM guarantees crystal-clear reception on your favorite station. The device’s MSRP is $39.99.

Beamit’s operating range is 10-30 feet (limited by FCC regulations), depending on the quality of the FM radio receiver. For more information and technical specifications, visit www.myirock.com.
