The FM 558 system package is a complete turnkey solution that includes 4 PPA R38 receivers and an FM+ transmitter for both FM and Wi-Fi transmission from the same box.
This system features the cutting-edge PPA T55 transmitter (replacing the T45 FM transmitter) with multiple digital audio input options and an OLED display with easy-to-manage navigation and network control features.
Each FM R38 is a multi-channel FM receiver with a high-resolution OLED screen. The receiver comes with earphones and batteries but is otherwise identical to the PPA R38. The R38 offers a quick view of receiver status and immediate entry to all user settings. On-screen channel selection with easy access to 17 pre-set, wide-band frequencies (72-76 MHz). The system is expandable, accommodating any number of listeners. This system complies with 2010 ADA guidelines for hearing assistance all for nearly the same cost as traditional FM systems.
Note: Firmware is model specific
