      I was looking into WiFi and Bluetooth speaker systems which were much more expensive but I already have an awesome, albeit a little older, home system. What I really wanted was to wirelessly run my family's iTunes on different devices through the home stereo without buying a whole new system. The Belkin achieves that for an incredibly low price. It could not be easier to set up and it works great. My only complaint is that the music playing device (iPad, laptop, whatever) has to be fairly close to the receiver, for example, in my house, the stereo is downstairs in the family room and I was hoping to be able to control the music from the living room upstairs but it doesn't seem to like obstructions like walls. Even in the same room, if someone walks between the device and receiver, the signal breaks up. That said, it's Bluetooth (which is not the world's strongest signal) but so simple to pair with any Bluetooth device in range, even if a friend comes over and wants to play something on their phone through the stereo. For the price, to be able to wirelessly connect the various devices and iTunes accounts in the house, I am pretty psyched with this purchase!

      This Bluetooth Music Receiver is a decent little device. Very easy to set up and use (plug in power, connect to stereo, pair your bluetooth device, and you're ready to go). The range is very reasonable (roughly 20-30 feet without any skips or signal loss).

      I have this device connected to my home stereo, primarily so that I can play music directly from my mobile apps on my cell phone.

      While the overall functionality is there, the sound quality certainly leaves something to be desired. Any device that I connect sounds like it's broadcasting from inside a tin-can. Same behavior with both my Android phone and my Windows 8 tablet PC. Other devices connected to my stereo don't have this odd tinny sound.

      I have used dedicated bluetooth speakers before without this sort of poor sound quality.

      For non audiophiles, the sound quality may not be an issue or even be noticeable. For me, it's irksome, but doesn't stop me from using the device.

          Comments about Belkin Bluetooth Music Receiver:

          I have over 700 songs on my Android smartphone. It is pretty much my source of music wherever I go. Recently, I bought a motorhome and wanted to be able to hear my favorite tunes at any given moment. I had a 7 year old boombox, which works great and for a while I was using 12 feet of 1/8 mini-stereo cord to plug into my smartphone. I thought, what if there was a bluetooth device that I could use to eliminate the cord. Voila. This works great and I since it uses an adapter, the power source is always on. I just have to connect to the Belkin in my bluetooth settings and I get to listen to my favorite songs. Awesome.

          I own two of these. One is indoors, one is outdoors. Easily connects to my iPhone. Range is somewhat limited, maybe 25-30 feet. Sound is good quality.

          I've gone through dozens of auxillary input wires from my phone and iPad to the stereo and they just keep getting worn out and the audio quality falls. Now I stumble upon this device, and now I don't use any wires! I use a male to make adaptor that just plugs right I to the device and the power cord and I'm all set! Turn on the car and podcasts and music play perfectly!

          This product is great for the price but it cuts in and out once your about 15 ft away. It works great within that range though. Sound quality suffers a little too; sounds really digital.

                I attached this to my stereo and it connects easily to my iOS devices. Unfortunately, all the music I play through it sounds tinny. You can hear a distinct echo sometimes. At first I thought "oh well, that's just bluetooth audio, I guess", but then I heard someone else's bluetooth stereo with my device and it sounded great.

                    It is a bluetooth but the range is only 6 or 7 feet, won't go through walls or people or even dogs. So if your phone is in your pocket and you turn around itwill cut out. It does have a 3.5 mm to yellow white audio so I'll keep it for that, it was only $[$].

                    I connected this to the sound board in my classroom to play examples for my students. The first one b&h sent worked for about 20 minutes before it totally died. Belkin tech support was completely inept on the phone. Luckily, b&h offered to send me another, free of charge. So far, the new one has been working fairly well. The range is pretty good, and the sound is acceptable. I just can't excuse how little the guy at Belkin tech support actually knew about the product.

                    This Bluetooth Music Receiver is a decent little device. Very easy to set up and use (plug in power, connect to stereo, pair your bluetooth device, and you're ready to go). The range is very reasonable (roughly 20-30 feet without any skips or signal loss).

                    I have this device connected to my home stereo, primarily so that I can play music directly from my mobile apps on my cell phone.

                    While the overall functionality is there, the sound quality certainly leaves something to be desired. Any device that I connect sounds like it's broadcasting from inside a tin-can. Same behavior with both my Android phone and my Windows 8 tablet PC. Other devices connected to my stereo don't have this odd tinny sound.

                    I have used dedicated bluetooth speakers before without this sort of poor sound quality.

                    For non audiophiles, the sound quality may not be an issue or even be noticeable. For me, it's irksome, but doesn't stop me from using the device.

                      Use the Blutooth receiver with my laptop and old desktop speakers all around the apartment, quality sound and distance.

                      I wanted wireless access to my Bose Wave in the bedroom, the rest of my house is serviced by Airport Express. The receiver works.. but drops connection (ex: stops playing audio for 2-3 seconds) a fair amount during music playback, enough that it irritates me. Especially irksome if streaming video content on an iPad. It isn't Airport, but for the pricetag, you can't expect it to be! Does the job.
