    It does give a better experience to the listeners. Most (not all) automobile "environments" don't lend themselves to the wonderful atmosphere you can get in a home, or wearing headphones. A high dynamic range is a luxury. This is why most radio stations compress.

    FYI - when I am doing an outdoor gig, either with live musicians or running as a DJ/MC, I compress so that the audio stays within a specific dynamic range. Indoor is another story all together. (Controlled environment.)

    In the end it all depends on how much of a "audiophile" you are and how much you want your show to sound like it is being broadcast from the local FM powerhouse. Most people are happy with the sound there FM transmitter puts out. For those that that want a better sound using a compressor (more exactly compressor - expander) or using the 3rd link I had on my earlier post MAY give you a much better sound. A lot depends on the original audio and quality of the FM transmitter.

    Note: If there is to be a continue of this discussion a new thread should be started in the proper forum category. My original post was just give those who went to the MI meet up a quick link.

    I agree with the choices given for different units.

    I also agree that this subject should be not only in its own thread, but added to the wiki for future review. The members on here and the other DIY Christmas sites are moving from the basics into some real, well-thought-out, advanced stuff for the displays.

    ESPixelStick is going really well for me. I linked to a test video I made. The soldering was pretty easy and the setup wasn't bad.

    I have also attached a link to the post on this forum for the last group buy. I have also attached a link to the website of the creator, Sporadic, of the ESPixelStick. He said May but who knows. If you want to buy some, I would reply to the group buy and let him know how many you are interested in. It may motivate the next round or he may have some extras. Group buy rules on this forum and many others state you must be a supporting member. You cannot reply to the thread until you do.

    After this month I'm hammered at the farm until September. So I would be hard pressed to make a meet before then.
