    Works great with one hitch.

    The Bluetooth receiver works great, but it does have one hitch, whenever you get within range it will automatically connect and make an annoying beep (through the speakers, not the device). It really isn't that big of a deal until you go in and out of the range and it makes a beep for every connection and disconnection. The other flaw is that it will default to the receiver whenever you are in range, in theory this is nice, but whenever you try to just sit down and try to watch a video on your device you wont hear anything unless your speakers are turned up, then you will hear it way louder than intended. For example, I have my receiver plugged in, in my upstairs bedroom, I was downstairs on the other side of the house. I was still in range (which is a pro to the device, the range is great!) and I was trying to watch a video on my phone, but couldn't hear a thing. So naturally i just assumed my phone's volume was down. I then proceeded to crank the volume up. Little did I know that it was connected to the receiver and to my speakers which happened to be turned up to a decent volume. All of a sudden from the other side of the house I hear this booming sound coming down the hall as everyone else in the house was confused as to why tartarus was opened in my bedroom. I realized then the power and range of that auto connect! I then had my speakers volume down at all times just in case it happened again. It got to the point where I just unplug it when I don't want to use it because it just starts to get annoying. It also will put itself as the highest priority Bluetooth device and hijack the signal. I have been using another Bluetooth speaker of mine and then got in the range of the receiver and all of a sudden couldn't hear what i was playing anymore, but the music was still playing on my device. I then noticed that the signal was hijacked and was playing on my speakers which were turned down. So its flaw is that it works too well. Otherwise this is a great device with excellent signal and strength. The audio quality is fantastic and sound great while playing over my speakers. It comes with a stereo to male 3.5mm plug which you then can plug into your speakers. I only took 1 star off just because I have to constantly unplug and re-plug the devices power rather than just having an off switch or something. It isn't that big of a deal so it didn't warrant 2 stars off because it really is a fantastic little device, just with a small annoyance factor that you can easily get past.

    My Panasonic plasma has a Bluetooth output but no analog outputs. My Yamaha receiver sounds great but is old and has no hdmi or optical audio inputs. By hooking up this Bluetooth receiver to my Yamaha and by connecting my tv through the Bluetooth out, I am able to use my old Yamaha receiver to play any audio coming out of my TV, including: Xbox, blue ray, and verizon fios. These other items have hdmi going into my tv. Due to the Bluetooth out from my tv, I get the full sound. I realize it would be even better with a new receiver with hdmi capability, but this little Logitech serves me well and saved me $500-$800 on a new receiver. I compared this to the rocket fish and the Harmon kardon. The Logitech allows two connections at the same time. This is great as I can connect my iPhone as well to listen to amazon prime, iTunes, or anything else on my iPhone through my Yamaha. The rocket fish requires to disconnect the Bluetooth from one device to reconnect to another - very annoying. The Harmon kardon also was not great for two connections at the same time. I noticed the rocket fish had louder sound pumping through compared to the Logitech, but I equalized that simply by turning up the volume on my Yamaha to compensate. I did not notice much of a sound difference between the Logitech and the Harmon kardon (and the hk was 2x the price of the Logitech). Overall, this Logitech has been a fantastic solution for me at a very reasonable price.

    I bought this device to stream audio from my Mac to a Sony surround sound system in my man cave for what when I watch on my projector. At first it was working flawlessly, watched a few episodes of The Flash and all of the sudden it started cutting out something terrible. I unplugged it for about 30 sec and plugged it back in and it worked fine for another hour or so. I'm confused as to why it's doing this so if anyone knows please comment. The Mac and SS are only about 9-10ft apart. I also noticed one time I left the room and heard it cutting out. So me or something getting in the way of the signal can't be it. Anyway I think I'll return it and try another one, maybe I got a defective one?? Hopefully a new one will be better. If not I'll try another brand. I'm gonna recommend this product even though I'm having trouble with it because I believe mine could be faulty. After I exchange it I'll write another review. My daughter's old room. Still need to paint!!

    Great...but one caveat

    The sound is great (compared to other bluetooth receivers) with one small (well large to me) problem: It refuses to let go of a bluetooth connection. Let me explain. I have the Logitech bluetooth receiver connected into my Pioneer audio receiver. I have my Amazon Echo connected through the Logitech (via bluetooth) to the audio receiver. I want to have the ability to play music through the receiver, but other normal Alexa functions through the speaker on the Echo itself. In other words, when I want music: "Alexa turn on blueooth." When i just want normal Echo functions (without turning the receiver on) I can turn off the bluetooth. Here's the problem: Whenever I instruct Alexa to disconnect the bluetooth connection, the Logitech receiver automatically reconnects. There's no way to stop it. None. The workaround: Plug the Logitech Bluetooth receiver's electrical plug into the switched amp plug on the back of the Pioneer audio receiver. Doing this insures that the Logitech is powered on only when the Pioneer receiver is on. You turn the audio receiver off, and the Echo drops the bluetooth connection. It works.

    I own an identical model (that works just fine) and I bought this one to use in a different area of the house. The Bluetooth source that I tried to link this adapter with recognizes the adapter but will not (after a dozen or so tries) link. I tried the new adapter with four different sources, all of which worked with my original but would not link to the new. I tried switching power supply cords (with the original) and even the connecting cables, all to no avail. The old one works with all setups and the new one with none. Conclusion - it is defective and I will try to exchange it for another. Can I arrange to do that over the phone - no - I have to come into the store. OK - I go in. There are a minimum of thirty uniformed employees in the store, ONE of whom is working returns. There were six people in line in front of me and the employee running the operation did not exactly inspire confidence. After 10 minutes in line with no one's return having yet been accepted I left, hoping to come back at a more reasonable time, but I have no idea when that might be, as the place does not even open until 10 am. After the logistics involved in acquiring the original and the second one I will simply go somewhere else for any future needs. I thought Radio Shack had devolved into the worst customer experience possible and was not at all surprised when they folded, but Best Buy is on a far worse track, at least in my opinion.

    A clever use for this Logitech bluetooth adapter

    We have a couple of Sonos amps in our house and I have always wanted to be able to stream music off my iphone or ipad to them. But Sonos limits you to using one of their approved music services (we have a Spotify account that we use for this). However, we wanted to be able to stream music from other music services where we did not have a pay account (which does NOT work with Sonos), or to be able to stream CDs and purchased music from our iTunes account. To do this I plugged in one of these Logitech Bluetooth adapters into the 3.5mm jack on the back of the Sonos amp (the cord comes with the Logitech adapter), then went into Sonos and enabled that input, and turned up the volume to 10 on that input (very important). The result? We can now stream music on our iphones or ipads to the Sonos amps!

    Easy setup, poor quality

    I very much enjoy Logitech as a company. I am still using my 2.1 PC speakers that I bought Summer of 2004. I have Harmony remotes, wireless mice, keyboards, iPad devices, and all sorts of add-ons from this company and have never once had a single issue with a product from them. which is why I was thrilled to see that they had one of these as I was hoping to make my receiver BT that I have sitting next to a window for outdoor use.... Plugged it into the receiver it paired up absolutely fantastic! was crazy easy to pair and was great. My phone LG V10, audio quality was poor, quiet, skipped a lot and didn't have range beyond 20 feet (they claim 15 meters in the box and 50' on bby.com). hooked up another phone, a 2013 Moto X which has better audio quality, same volume, skipped not quite as much but had around a 10 foot range. Figure I may just return this and get the Google Chromcast Audio as that will work via WiFi network and do both the Pandora and Google Play Music that I use. Came highly recommended by the sales person who said he can use it all over the house without problem.. not that I doubt that as I see many fantastic reviews but this one definitely didnt work well for me. I may exchange it for another but we will see...

    I cannot recommend this device enough. Main advantages: -15m range (most BT adapters are 10m, higher end Class 1 BT adapters are 100m, but will cost closer to $60 at the minimum) -Multi-point BT: connect 2 devices and switch seamlessly between each as the playing device. Most BT adapters only support 1 device connected at a time. Missing feature: -No AptX: this is needed for higher quality streams over BT. However, consider that you need a speaker system that can produce the sounds and a source that is higher quality (ideally lossless). The main drawback is that the playing device needs to support AptX, and there aren't that many that do... (currently NO Apple product supports this, but many Samsung devices do). My nexus device does not support AptX, so I did not need an adapter that supported it as well. -RCA connection as opposed to digital Coax: this isn't even a limiting factor for this particular model, and is even less relevant at short cable lengths. -No NFC: only useful for the initial pairing--I'd call this more of a gimmick than anything else. Devices need to support NFC and need to have the setting for it on. Doesn't save much time and would hardly be used in my household.

    this product by far exceeded my expectations. It was exactly what I was looking for. plugs into the wall not batteries because I'm never gonna move it. i own a smaller rechargable style and it has problems. if you need one for traveling or moving it around sure. try one with batteries. otherwise this box is perfect companion for an older stereo or entertainment center that doesn't have bluetooth. use this small box to steam your audio from your phone or tablet WIRELESSLY to that old sound system that still rocks. I use this at work everyday and it is a game changer for anyone who hasn't had the privilege of owning a device like this. and for the cost I should be bought two. I would recommend this to anyone that likes to listen to music/ podcasts. forget the radio. pick online station and play whachever u want. whenchever you want. this product combined with a Bluetooth enabled device that streams audio from the internet or any audio you wish. will turn just about any old sound system into futurized "smart sound system". i give it 5 staaas.

    Don't get to carried away with this device... It say's the connection can go up to 50 feet away but for me it might be a couple feet over 30. I love logitech and their products, but it was way smaller than expected so i feel like it would have a higher probability of breaking, and its probably only a inch thick and the device is the size of my palm, but if your a full grown adult it would be half the size of your palm, and it seems the sound quality is a little better when plugged in with a auxiliary cord and you cant put a password on the device through your phone so anyone can connect even when your playing music to switch it to there song of choice or whatever you would need this device. I don't regret my purchase but it would have been better to know how small it was and how far you can actually go before it stop's whatever you are doing.

    I connected this Bluetooth receiver with the cable supplied to an old Sony receiver's RCA jack CD input figuring that would allow for maximum frequency response and used my laptop's Bluetooth to play music. This Bluetooth receiver synced up quickly with no problems. But I noticed the sound seemed bandwidth limited without much upper or lower frequency range, plus it seemed not to have much dynamic range. I noticed there are no specs available to read on these subjects onsite or in the little manual supplied. So I connected my laptop headphone output directly to the receiver using the same cable and it sounded much better bypassing the Bluetooth and receiver. If you're used to listening to music on smartphone speakers and are happy with that then this won't matter and you can just send the music to a stereo receiver just fine with this. But I'll probably give mine away to someone who is fine with smartphone speakers.

    I have an old 5.1 Bose system, that sounds wonderful, however it lacks of Bluetooth connectivity, as well as the new Bose models. So when I was ready to buy the Bose Bluetooth adapter, which is expensive, and thinking that it will guarantee the high standard sound quality, the Sales agent recommended this Logitech device, and I am completely satisfied with the product. I thought I was going to miss the NFC capability, but, it is the same result if I approach to the device and press the top bottom, it connects automatically to my Samsung cell phone and start playing the music. The sound quality is very good, I really like this product, and for the 1/4 of the Bose adapter price!

    This has been a great addition to an otherwise nice audio receiver that lacked built in bluetooth. Connects effortlessly to my cell phone for playing music and will do it automatically each time the Bluetooth receiver is on and I'm in range after making the initial connection. I have actually been surprised by the range in which it will receive a clear signal. If you're at a sufficient distance (>15ft) and the Bluetooth transmitting device gets jostled (cell phone in pocket, etc.) you can get occasional static. But if you're moving within a reasonable range of the unit (<15ft) , or you keep your transmitting device stationary (like setting it on a table), this Logitech receiver will give you crystal clear reception to quite a distance. I've set my phone down on a shelf over 30ft away and had no signal issues. Blue lighted logo is nice too to let you know when it is powered up.

    This device easily pairs with my iPad and Android phone using Bluetooth. I can now play music wirelessly through the speakers on my old stereo system. Using my iPad, I've wirelessly streamed iTunes music, the audio from YouTube videos, and the audio from a radio app to the stereo system. I've also wirelessly streamed music stored on my Android phone. It's definitely much better hearing the music through the stereo system, instead of through the tiny speakers in the iPad and phone. Sitting at my dining room table or on my sofa across the room, I can remotely select playlists and tunes to play on the stereo system, skip or repeat tracks, and even adjust the volume. Very convenient. I no longer need to go back and forth to the stereo system to change the music or audio. My wife thinks it's great. Terrific device.

    simple bluetooth solution

    My phone's headphone jack has been deteriorating, so I finally gave up and bought a bluetooth receiver for my office speakers, an old pair of Alesis studio monitors. This was easy to set up and easy to pair, and mercifully does NOT auto start playing upon pairing the way my car audio does. (Great in the car - potentially embarrassing or disruptive in the office!) I've had it over a month now, and have not had to even think about it - I come in to the office, hit play on my phone, and the music happens. The only caveat I would issue is that if it is paired, it WILL produce notifications, not that I would consider that a bad thing, but I have been surprised by it more than once! I would probably not have purchased this device if the headphone jack had continued working, but now that I have it, I think it's actually a great improvement over having to park my phone by the speakers.

    Great way to add Bluetooth functionality to an older sound system. Very easy to install and set up. I did get some feed back at first, just made sure the connections were tight and moved the unit away from my receiver. Easy to connect to all my apple products and simple to switch between what I want to play. Only downside is that it will always want to connect to the device as soon as you get home. When I click disconnect, it seems like it somehow auto reconnects every time. A little annoying if connected to your phone and the stereo isn’t on to hear your phone alerts and tones. Otherwise it gives clear sound and has a pretty decent range throughout my whole house. Would definitely recommend if you already have a good stereo and don’t want to purchase a new Bluetooth speaker.

    The range isn't really far considering the size of the unit itself, there are many simple aux plug devices that do a similar thing. This device takes bluetooth transmission as input and outputs as AV or through auxiliary cable. My only complaint is that I leave the logitech speakers that I have on and when I'm not connected to the device, the speakers will have a looped-like white noise - almost like it is searching for a device. I of course should just turn off the speaker system but I bought this device so that the whole setup could be hands free.. I definitely do not miss having to keep my phone or computer within aux cord distance to my speakers, now I can walk around my house with my iphone and I can skip the songs that I always wish my playlist wouldn't shuffle to, without running out of the shower to the speakers.

    Strong connection, RCA ports create humming noise

    I absolutely love this product so far. Pros: - VERY strong and stable connection. I plug it into my living room, and I can be at the opposite end of my house and still have perfect audio. - Easy to connect. Cons - Not sure if it's my product itself, but when I plug in audio through the 3.5mm jack, it creates a soft low pitched continuous humming noise. I attempted using different cables and plugging different speakers into it , same thing. The RCA cables work perfectly with no noise. - Blue light. It's not a problem for me, but many will complain that you can't turn it on/off. When watching moving in the dark, it illuminates fairly bright. I positioned mine inside a cabinet. - Requires wall power. This may be a good or bad thing. Requiring more power than batteries allows it to maintain a strong bluetooth connection. Only problem is it's another cable/power outlet slot taken.

    Logitech - Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Adapter

    Connected the receiver to my stereo and paired it with my cell phone. I turned up the volume on the stereo intending to use the phone to control volume. Instead of clean music, a noticeable "hum" was present. Both the stereo and the Bluetooth Adapter were plugged into the same power strip to minimize chances of ground loops and the cable provided with the adapter was used so I cannot speak about how well it was shielded. Problem was solved by turning the phone to almost max volume and then turning the stereo way down and controlling the volume only at the stereo. Results were then acceptable although not convenient. I would conditionally give this product a recommendation but not a strong one. That said, the price was good so it is a trade-off.

    The product came ready to plug and play out of the box. Simply plug the one end of the RCA/Phono Plug combo cord into the input of my Car Stereo, and the other end into the Bluetooth device. The Bluetooth device has both Red/White RCA jacks and a 3.5 Phono jack on the front. Then depending on what your Stereo has for Audio inputs RCA or Phono plug, to hook up. Then plug in AC power supply. Then use the Computer or Phone (Device) to find the Logitech device and connect to it. I did have trouble reconnecting to the Logitech device after connecting to it. I only had to disable, then enable, then reconnect to the Logitech device to make it work again. You will hear an audible tone through the speakers when the Bluetooth device connects to your Audio device.
