  1. I have Windows 8 64 bits and it is compatible. Great little product, works really well.

  2. Does it transmit mp3 files?
    I tried this cool tip on the raspberry. It works but the files must be in wav format and mono.

  3. It probably is doing the stereo and possibly RDS encode in software and using a high sample rate DAC straight into the transmitter, I used a windows program to transmit RDS the same way as an experiment in station hijacking back before there were any legit RDS stations over here.
