Belkin's New Bluetooth Music Receiver Connects to Your Home Stereo to Play Music Wirelessly

Belkin announced a new Bluetooth Music Receiver that lets you wirelessly stream music from your iPhone or iPod touch through your home's stereo system. After connecting the receiver to your home stereo system using the included cables, you'll need to pair your device to the Receiver wirelessly to listen to, share, and control your music. Like other Bluetooth connections, the Bluetooth Music Receiver gives you a range of approximately 33 feet.

The Bluetooth Music Receiver uses Bluetooth v2.0 and can remember up to six paired devices. It is currently available in the US for $49.99 and expected to be available in Canada, Europe, Asia, and Australia in March 2010.

Key features of the Bluetooth Music Receiver include:
  • Features Bluetooth v2.0 with EDR for superior performance
  • Transmits up to 33 ft. away
  • Includes 3.5mm-to-RCA and 3.5mm-to-3.5mm cables
  • Compatible with all devices enabled with A2DP stereo Bluetooth, including:
    • iPhone 3GS, 3G, and first generation
    • iPod touch 2nd generation

This is cool, but I already have a Whole House Transmitter that connects to any device and broad casts to any number of Radios at a distance of 150 feet or more.

They guarantee a 150' range but I get about 200' at my place. I stream internet radio or just MP3's and set every stereo in the house to pumpin' de jam, mon!

Haven't had to worry about this one myself: My stereo is right near my arcade cabinet, so I connected the audio outs and just control Amarok on the cabinet via SSH -X.
