an old, tube amp guy like me, was able to get this to work on my 70's stereo... Wonderful! Simply, it works as it was claimed to do!

Bluetooth Speaker Alternative

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The price is right. Zero setup. Love being able to stream my devices to my old-school sound system set up in my kitchen without having to buy an additional Bluetooth speaker. Easy to hide, works flawlessly.

Pros: Super small, all inclusive, zero setup.

Cons:

Works exactly as I hoped right out of the box. Now my wife can easily play music from her phone or iPad through our Bose Wave radio and it sounds great.

Needed device to allow wireless streaming of music to older non Bluetooth receiver. To me, it sounds great. Remember to unpair your device once you are through streaming music.

I'm kicking myself for not buying this earlier. I love my old stereo gear and I didn't want to give them up for new Bluetooth capable speakers. Now, everybody is happy.

Pros: Inexpensive, ez to install.

The tiny bluetooth device you've always needed

Crutchfield customer from Bethlehem, PA on 3/25/2020

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I would give 4.5 if I could. This little device works and sounds great. It is also incredibly easy to set up and use. Just connect to power source and connect 3.5mm jack. Bluetooth connection immediately shows up on phone and stays connected... That leads me to deducting 1 star-It will be always connected to your phone once you connect to it. You have to either disconnect the bluetooth connection from your phone when you're done or disconnect the power from the device. So, that means selecting the bluetooth device on your phone every time you want to listen to it. But that works fine for me, only adds an extra few seconds. And for the price of this thing I can definitely deal with that.

Pros: Size, ease of use, sounds great

Cons: Always connected to power, meaning BT always connected

Simple installation, works great. Doesn't support the high end audio interfaces or optional codecs of some of the other more expensive add on bluetooth products but the sound quality is pretty good.

Pros: Simple and inexpensive

Cons: None
