SONNET ANNOUNCES PODFREQ™ FM TRANSMITTER FOR THE iPOD®
IRVINE, CALIFORNIA — April 26, 2004— Sonnet Technologies, the worldwide leader in processor upgrade cards for Apple Macintosh® computers, announces the new PodFreq, a portable FM transmitter designed for serious music freaks with iPods (with dock connectors). PodFreq easily tunes with any available FM frequency, and transmits music from the iPod with a very high-quality signal. The PodFreq is ideal for anyone wanting to listen to the music on their iPod through a FM car stereo, home sound system receiver, or any portable FM radio device.
The attractive and integrated design of the PodFreq encases the iPod in a durable, translucent shell, providing added protection to the iPod, while maintaining convenient access to the iPod controls and the headphone jack. PodFreq’s digital tuning enables the user to choose any frequency from 88.3 to 107.7MHz in 0.1MHz steps.
“Sonnet is excited to offer the PodFreq,” states Sonnet CEO, Robert Farnsworth. “iPod owners have been eager to expand their iPod’s versatility with a high-fidelity FM transmitter. The PodFreq is specially designed to transmit music with exceptionally low harmonic distortion and a strong and stable stereo broadcast signal. Furthermore the PodFreq embodies a striking industrial design consistent with the popular iPod.”
The PodFreq utilizes the iPod’s line out signal (instead of the headphone jack) accomplishing superior input level sensitivity from a stable signal volume that ensures a higher signal-to-noise ratio resulting in better fidelity. The user is also able to independently control volume through their FM receiver and headset volume via the iPod. The integrated FireWire and mini USB ports allow the user to synch with iTunes and/or charge the iPod using industry-standard cables without removing it from the PodFreq.

The PodFreq is compatible with any iPod, Mac or PC version (with dock connector, excluding the iPod mini).
