PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT: Turn your old audio receiver into a Bluetooth system

This little box is full of tricks. I’m talking about our Bluetooth Receiver here, which may not look like much but it can take a stereo from the 1990s and give it new life. That’s only one of the tricks it can do. Here’s a quick overview.

Setup is simple

The setup is simple: connect the thing to the line-in ports on your stereo and plug it into a wall power source. Bingo, presto, instant Bluetooth speaker. Because, no one has a huge CD collection anymore, no one plays music from cassettes. Chances are most of your audio library is on your phone, and you don’t want to connect it to your stereo using one of those cheesy headphone cables. I mean, you’d have to leave the room where the phone is and that might mean missing an important text.

But that’s not all, folks

This device can act as a Bluetooth sender or a receiver. In other words, you can connect it to an audio receiver and use it to send music from your phone. Or, put the little switch in “TX” mode and it turns into a Bluetooth adapter that lets you use practically any Bluetooth headphones on the market with any device with a headphone jack.

There are a lot of devices that do one thing, but most won’t do both. This little device is just full of features.

Here’s what you can do

  • It supports two devices in send mode so that you and a friend can both listen over headphones at the same time.
  • It lets you connect to practically any old equipment, using optical or RCA
  • It gives you amazing range — up yo 200 feet — using Bluetooth 5.0 technology.

Honestly that’s a lot for one device to do. And you get practically anything you’d need in the box including cables and a long-range antenna. It’s a great value.

Advanced technology makes it work

Not only does this device use Bluetooth 5.0 technology for compatibility with practically any device, it also gives you features so advanced you probably won’t need them for years.

You get media control buttons, something you hardly ever find on a device like this. Volume and play/pause controls are right there.

More importantly you get aptX. This is a new and upcoming technology that’s going to vastly improve audio quality from Bluetooth headsets once everyone uses it. It’s a feature so advanced you probably haven’t even considered it yet. But trust me, get a device with aptX and your 2023 self will thank you.

Now your whole system acts like one massive, high quality Bluetooth speaker.

What will they think of next?
