What brand, are you using it in for "hi-fi" or just on your kitchen radio, and are you happy with it?

I just saw this video, recommended some BT to speaker setups.

"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

"Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise" - Barry Goldwater

My earlier post with one Amz link Rolando had suggested.

bezosville "Best Sellers" list (take w/ a large grain of salt)

imho $20-30 should be the 'sweet spot'.

sorry, I missed that earlier post, MrNoBody.

Fritz: not for car use, home only. RCA outs would be appreciated vs. miniplug.

thanks, Rolando. I'll watch.

I'm also scheming on making a BT boombox, but that may need something more like what you all posted about in that other thread.

I use the 1Mii B06 Plus Bluetooth Receiver, which is the #1 pick from the link above. Works well. Note it can only pair to 2 devices.

I'm not understanding why physical outputs (to what?) matter for wireless audio. What's you music source?

You may not need Bluetooth depending on your source. For a kitchen speaker consider something like the one IKEA has. It uses Airplay 2 and Sonos connectivity. Actually there's one more, it can use Spotify Connect also.

How would I get the sound to the stereo without physical outs?

You asked for something that receives audio wirelessly but now I realize you're looking to ADD bluetooth capability to an existing, standard system. Carry on.

Regardless, my other comment about a Y-cable should still make the physical connection. [www.amazon.com]
