    Potentially connects to a stereo audio source via the usual 3.5mm audio plug.

    The FM transmitter circuit is cheap:
    1) It is missing a voltage regulator so its radio frequency slowly changes as the battery voltage runs down.
    2) It is missing pre-emphasis that all FM radio stations have so its sounds heard on an FM radio will sound muffled like your stereo with its treble tone control turned all the way down.
    3) Is its range farther than across the street?

    Hopefully not, if it's interfering with other people's FM reception :).

    If it interferes with other people's FM reception then it is useless. It should be tuned to a clear channel that does not have a radio station.

    The jack plug shorts left and right stereo signal source channels together which might destroy the signal source. The simple transmitter is mono, not stereo.
