Our take on the Focal Bird USB Dongle by Crutchfield's Marshall Chase
With this handy USB dongle, you can wirelessly stream music from your computer to your Focal Bird powered speaker system. And that's not just the music stored on your PC, either it also streams any audio source your computer can access online. So you can enjoy Internet radio stations, Pandora®, SlackerFM you name it. If it plays through your computer's speakers, you can stream it to your Focal Bird system to enjoy with far better sound quality.
The dongle plugs into a USB port on your computer, and has a transmission range of up to 33 feet.
Works perfectly love it! but the first time I tried to sync it to the power bird it took a little bit of time and a few tries.
