Very cool FM transmitter and easy wiring question
Just thought I'd point out the FM Transmitter I just purchased. I've tried the Belkin (apple Ipod) one, and the C Crane and Co. transmitter, but this one is way better (and naturally more expensive) According to the owner's manual, range is 2 miles with the right antenna! (look out for the FCC though...)
The sound is very good, unlike the cheaper ones. a picture is attached.

I do have a question for you guys though... The input voltage is +9V DC, what is the best way to convert my +12 DC into +9V DC? My other +12V stuff is running off the Opus PSU, but I think for this I don't need to go through the Opus, I just need to convert battery voltage into +9V DC. Or maybe you know differently?
I have a DVD player, Hard Drive, Eden Motherboard, and Datalux monitor all running off the 90 Watt PSU, so I think I might be getting close to the limit of what I can run off the PSU. The power adapter that came with the FM Transmitter says 500 miliamps.
Please let me know what you think the best way would be to drop the voltage from 12 to 9 Thanks!
