    Turn any old stereo into a Bluetooth sound system

    I have to admit that I was skeptical at first in trying out this item, but considering the alternative of purchasing a brand new stereo system for several hundred if not thousands of dollars this was a no brainer. For a meager $50 you too can turn any old stereo, like the bookshelf system in my bedroom, or even just a pair of computer speakers into a Bluetooth capable sound system. Measuring in at a mere 4 x 3 inches this tiny Bluetooth receiver isn't very impressive until you plug it in and actually use it. Pairing with my iPhone 6s was a breeze. The receiver is highly responsive with no lag whatsoever and delivers crystal clear sound to the speakers of your choice. It is powered by an AC adapter provided in the box, and also features a 3.5 jack for speaker output. This receiver even has a fiber optic cable output if you decide to connect to your speakers via that route. Over all, you can't beat this little device especially with its $50 price tag. As a matter of fact, soon as I get a chance I'm getting one for the old stereo in my living room.

    Great for complete home speaker systems!

    When I moved into my new home, the pervious owner put in a complete home speaker system using a receiver and a source that connects to that amplifier. I didn't want to have to go back and forth into the shelf where it was located to change the music, rather be able to use a tablet or my phone away from the system to control what is playing. Enter this product.... It plus directly into one of the optical outlets in your receiver as well as into the wall giving it power. Once turned on, the option was available within my Bluetooth choices on my iPad. I connected to it and have had no connectivity issues at all.....as long as you stay about 15-20 ft away from it. That's the only down side. I have a deck outside that is only about 25 ft from where this is installed and it's connection is lacking at best. Although it does a great job with doing what it says it will do in playing music, it is still not able to go the 30 ft that it suggested. It's a minor problem since the main purpose for getting this was covered and I can still use the Bluetooth enabled device to play music.

    Everyone should have one!

    Being a long time and even old fashioned perhaps hi-fi buff, I always view these types of "solutions" with much skepticism. Experience has been that the result is usually far less than satisfying. This is not the case with the Rocketfish! When I am most satisfied, my immediate thought is that "everyone should have one of these!" It doesn't happen often, so it is very clear to me when it does. This is a must have device that would please all but the most discriminating audiophiles. It works perfectly; easy setup and surprisingly excellent sound quality. For around $50, you can't beat it. I'd put it up against units costing twice as much. The unit itself is small and compact for placement almost anywhere and it is a snap to hookup; power cord and RCA plugs to your output source. As others have noted there are no admin type functions allowing to change the SSID, but this is a minor shortcoming IMO esp. at this price point. So since everyone should have one, what are you waiting for!

    Solid Performance

    Product is easy to set up and use. The unit performs well and ranks good in the sound quality department. I use the 3.5 mm connection into my receiver for a stereo listening application (kitchen and outdoor speakers - A+B setup). As an audiophile I was pleased with the sound quality from this setup with the expectations that the system provide music fill at moderate listening levels. The small size of the unit and the more than adequate wiring provides for versatile application, see further comments below. The unit does stay connected to one device, that being the last one connected to the unit. This can be a nuisance if the unit is left powered on after you are done listening. An easy way to combat this matter is by using a "green" power strip (which I was already using) and plugging the unit in one of the energy saving slots so it shuts down when the receiver is powered off, thus disconnecting from the device when done listening. The range on the unit is sufficient. When making a purchase of this product be mindful of walls, doors and other obstacles. Again I have combated this by relocating the unit when required with the excess wiring provided. Overall it is a cost effective way to make a legacy receiver more functional with today's music streaming devices.

    Good Sound but Auto connect is Anoying

    Posted

    It seems to have good sound but sometimes I think the music sounds flat and lacks depth and seems kind of muddy but also seems to lack Bass but maybe it is the MP3 file or the device I'm using or because I'm tired. I don't notice any hiss when the music is stopped or at a quite part. The one really Annoying Thing is the Auto Connect feature, if I disconnect any device from it by selecting drop connection or disconnect on my Bluetooth device the Rocketfish it's self will automatically reconnect to the device making it impossible to connect another device, the only way to prevent this is to turn off the Bluetooth on my device and then connect another device. I have several Bluetooth Speakers and 2 other Bluetooth Receivers and non of them have this problem, they will only connect if I manually reconnect to them from what ever device I want to connect to it from. Also it takes several tries to get it to connect to my devices. I only paid 23.59 for it because it was open box so for the price it's a good deal but for the full price of 50 it's Not worth it, better of getting the Belkin Songstream HD that has coaxial and optical and analog audio out.

    Terrific Product

    Easy to hookup and use. The sound quality is great considering I'm using this with a high end Meridian system that resolves very minute detail. Yes, the Rocketfish product does not have the same sound quality as, say, a high quality source like a SACD player but it's not supposed to. I purchased this product because I've turned into as tightwad as I've aged. Considering the source is an iPhone, I could hardly expect more. It sounds very open, clear and the soundstage is resolved nicely. Terrific product and I'm delighted with my purchase.

    Love the optical digital output

    I've got an older Pioneer Elite receiver with optional Bluetooth. If you can even find a Pioneer Bluetooth Adaptor the price generally runs well over $100. I bought an Amazon Echo dot to connect to the receiver through the audio cable connection but the sound had an annoyingly brittle quality. I picked up this and connected it to the receiver using the optical audio output. Then I use the Echo Dot to send it the signal streaming from my Amazon music storage account of my own uploaded highest quality MP3 rips. The resulting audio quality is almost indistinguishable from the the sound played back from the the original CD. I imagine it's helped along a bit by the processing done by the receiver as well. For non-critical listening I find it quite satisfying for daily background music. I'm amazed at how clean the sound is for bluetooth.

    This is an inexpensive route if you want to stream music with older components. I have been looking at Sonos Speakers and the wireless 'Connect' receiver. I didn't have the $350 to spend on the Sonos Connect plus more for the speakers, so I opted for this Rocketfish for $50. With the Sonos, you connect via WiFi so your sound isn't compromised. The Rocketfish is blue tooth, so since the signal is compressed, you will notice a difference in the sound quality. I have an older system that 20yrs+ old, but wanted to stream music thru it. So for this application it works fine. You plug in the RCA connection to your receiver, and you're good to go. If you're looking for more upper end quality, look at the Sonos.
