"You never know how much of an inconvenience something is until you experience a functional alternative and Belkin's Bluetooth Music Receiver does exactly that for those listening to music in the home. If you have an existing set of speakers or home theater system and you want to connect your iPod, smartphone, or MP3 player to it, you either have to use a direct stereo jack or your stereo must support a dedicated dock connector."
Wirelessly streaming music is a wonderful idea! So wonderful that a few companies have made attempts at offering whole home solutions as impressive prices. While some may be able to afford the absolute best in a music system that spans dozens of rooms, all synchronized with block rocking beats, others wants a simpler, more economical solution. Belkin has made an entry that makes sense. A lot of PMP like devices, from iPhones to Android devices, to your laptop notebook include Bluetooth, with most of them capable of streaming through the A2DP profile. The music is not quite up to audiophile standards, but good enough for casual listening. I have used it in the past and have certainly been pleased with the results. Does anyone else have a low cost streaming setup?
