DS Lite Stereo FM Radio Converter
Site: Buy from Goldenshop
Overview : Listen to the radio using your DS Lite.
- High quality 3rd party product.
- Specially design for NDS Lite.
- Built in LCD display - easy to set up.
- No need to add extra battery - get the power from the NDS Lite.
- Stereo sound signal.
- Supports full range of FM frequency - from 87.5 to 108.5
Quality/Usability : The DS Lite Stereo FM Radio Converter operates on 87.5MHz-108Mhz frequency (Stereo signal). Inserting the FM Radio into the DS will stick out.
On the front of the FM radio is a blue LCD display that shows you the station you are listening to. Underneath the LCD display are 5 buttons; CH+, CH-, MODE, Volume UP and DOWN. To the right of the LCD display is the headphone jack.
In order for the FM radio to turn on, you must turn on the DS. You can not use the radio with the DS off. You can only adjust the volume on the FM radio. Adjusting the volume on the DS will do nothing. And you can only listen using the headphone jack on the FM radio, not on the DS Lite. Removing the headphone out of the jack will turn the FM radio off.
To scan through the stations, press MODE. This will make the volume bars disappear. Use UP/DOWN to scan through the stations. If you want to save that station to one of the 40 preset channels, just hold the MODE button down. The channels will now blink. Use the CH- or CH+ to select which channel you want to save that station to. Once you choose a channel, press MODE to confirm. To select your preset stations, just press either CH+ or CH- to scroll through your saved stations.
Pressing the buttons will require a little force. In other words, you'll have to press the buttons a little harder in order for it to recognize.
The quality of the sound is fairly decent with a little static. Dont expect any bass/tremble as there wont be any.
Conclusion : Overall, the DS Lite Stereo FM Radio Converter is a decent product. Nothing fancy or high tech. Having to press the buttons harder can be annoying. It would have been nice if it didnt require you to turn the DS Lite on. Since it does, it should have at least let us use the headphone jack and volume slider on the DS Lite. The FM radio only comes in one color, white.
