Today I’d like to share with you an inexpensive little device I purchased recently. This new toy is a Bluetooth audio receiver. The function of this little gizmo is to allow streaming audio from any of your Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as smartphones and tablets. The specific unit that I purchased is a HomeSpot NFC-enabled Bluetooth Audio Receiver for Sound System, and here’s my review.
The setup was about as straightforward as can be:
- Plug the device into an available a/c outlet.
- Plug the device into an audio receiver, boom box or shelf system that has an auxiliary input (rca plugs or mini-jack) with the provided cable.
- Pair your Bluetooth device of choice to the Bluetooth audio receiver.
That’s about it. Now all of the audio that would have come out of the tiny little speaker on your phone or tablet comes out of your home audio system.
Personally I have mine hooked up to a little bookshelf stereo so that when I want to watch movies on my tablet, I’ll get decent sound. It’s also nice for just listening to your music.
Here are some similar devices to choose from:
