Logitech 980441-0403 Wireless Music System for iPod is exactly what the name describes it to be. What is more is that it actually does what it is supposed to do. I have been waiting a while now for a device like this to come out, and now that it has, it has not disappointed.
It is quite simple to use. Put the pin of the wireless transmitter in the audio jack of your iPod and connect the receiving station to your stereo system with RCA interconnect cable and that is it. Now your iPod works as a remote control to a wireless audio system.
It comes with a wireless transmitter for iPod with AC adapter for charging and music receiver for the stereo system with AC adapter. The AC charging for the transmitter means that it is made to not to drain the battery of my iPod. Even though it is more sensible not to consume my battery on an external source which requires more power, still it adds another device on my panel to be charged. The box also includes stereo RCA interconnect cables, remote control, information manual and a 2 year limited warranty.
It not only works for an iPod but also for any mp3 player. As it comes with a standard 3.5mm jack hence a device with the same jack can also be used. I have also plugged in my headphones instead of the stereo at the receiving end and it works just as fine.
One might argue that the sound quality gets reduced due to the interference present on the wireless medium but the Logitech Wireless 980441-0403 Wireless Music system has excellent sound quality, much better than any FM transmission.
It can be connected to iPod shuffle, iPod nano, iPod 3G/4 and with the transmission range in excess of 30 feet it can be used to connect the sound system present in multiple rooms with multiple receiving stations. So I can create a party ambiance in my home with music in every room and the control is on my finger tips.
Another interesting feature of this device is how easy it is to sync the transmitter and the receiver. Just press and hold the button on the transmitter for 5 seconds, it searches for the receiver and the devices get synced at easy as that. And when in the idle mode, where there is no audio transmission, the transmitter shuts down to conserve battery.
The device is a bit pricey for my liking but with excellent sound quality as compared to previous FM transmitters, it is totally worth it for me.
