Enjoy Wireless Music with a Bluetooth Audio Receiver
A Bluetooth audio receiver, or a Bluetooth speaker adapter, is a tool that helps wirelessly connect a music source to a wire-only audio system, such as home stereo systems, computer speakers, and AV receivers. There are also audio receivers made specially to work with a car’s archaic entertainment system. Buy a Bluetooth audio receiver on eBay and bid adieu to cables, cradles, and docks.What to look for in a Bluetooth audio receiver?
Before buying a Bluetooth audio receiver, make sure the receiver covers the following basics well:
- Pairing/Connectivity: The receiver must easily and quickly pair with compatible devices; look for a one-push painting mechanism (button). Other things to consider are the ease with which the receiver reconnects after having lost connection, and how many devices it could connect to simultaneously.
- Range: The audio receiver should offer a range good enough to encompass a typical living space. Typically, the range must be 30-40 feet (unobstructed) and 20-30 feet (through obstructions, such as walls).
- Output: The audio output should be like a wired connection, if not better. The DAC (digital-to-analogue converter) in the receiver, along with other audio circuitry and audio compression for transmission, determine sound output quality.
The audio receiver connects to the speakers or home stereo using the 3.5mm-to-3.5mm or 3.5mm-to-RCA cable. These cables come with the receiver. Once the cables are connected, your Bluetooth device can be paired with the receiver for wireless streaming action.Why buy Bluetooth audio receivers for cars?
Most modern cars come with Bluetooth as standard. Older models, however, do not. Whilst it is possible to upgrade an old car audio system, a Bluetooth audio receiver is an equally viable option. Buying a new car with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is also an option. This is an inexpensive option, which should work just like any Bluetooth-enabled, full-fledged car stereo system.What is the difference to a Bluetooth speaker?
A Bluetooth speaker is a useful device if you don’t already have dedicated speakers. An audio receiver, however, is suitable if you alreadyy own speakers. This device is cost efficient and can be used with your existing set-up, even if it isn’t wireless. By using the audio receiver with your existing speakers, you will be able to ensure the sound quality remains high.
