Every now and then a product arrives at NAG that makes my nerdy antennae, from the scape segment through the pedicel and all the way to the flagellum, flap around in the aiyer like they just don’t cayer, and with that my vocal cords eke out a grandiloquent noise. [Uhhh… sure, why not? – Ed.]
Logitech’s Bluetooth Audio receiver is a small, simple, yet absolutely brilliant device that’ll turn any speaker equipped with either a 3.5mm jack or RCA inputs into a wireless music streaming device. You now have the ability to turn any visit to your grandparent’s house into a momentous occasion by connecting this Bluetooth audio receiver to their gramophone speaker system to stream Papa Roach. Epic, right? [That depends. I mean, Papa Roach? Really? IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE I WAS 13 YEARS OLD, LEN. – Ed.]
Getting everything connected is as simple as you’d expect and quicker than making a cup of tea, so you’ll soon be rocking out with Nana and Gramps.
The Logitech Bluetooth Audio Receiver is ideal for anyone who has an awesome, high-powered, but old-school hi-fi system at home, because it’ll turn said system into a more modern audio-streaming device. Its wireless range easily covers a large living room area and extends into adjacent rooms with little to no connection loss. Outdoors, your range extends to around 15 metres. You can also simultaneously pair two devices to the receiver, so Gramps and I had a great time switching between Papa Roach and Neil Diamond.
Great value for money
Simple one-push pairing button
Would’ve liked digital output
Could do with a USB power option
8I recently purchased a Bluetooth-enabled audio system specifically for streaming from my phone. I could’ve purchased Logitech’s Bluetooth Audio Receiver as an upgrade to my previous speaker system, and it would’ve saved me a couple thousand rand.
