We have an old Yamaha receiver/amplifier that has 5.1 Pioneer surround sound speakers connected to it. I've been thinking for a while that it would be nice to be able to stream music through these speakers. There a several devices out there that will turn your non Bluetooth speakers into Bluetooth speakers to stream music to and [...]

Lately, I’ve been considering upgrading my Onkyo stereo receiver. It’s about 8 years old and doesn’t have wifi, Bluetooth, USB or even HDMI. But it does have a nice sub output for my (even older) Pioneer subwoofer—but that’s another story. There have been countless times that I’ve wished I could easily stream my iPhone to [...]

Will Bluetooth ever get any respect? It will if Audioengine has anything to say about it. Audioengine – known for dynamite speakers and DACs – have released their first Bluetooth product, the Audioengine B1 Premium Bluetooth Music Receiver. The B1 streams audio from any media player (iTunes, Amarra, Youtube, etc.) and connects to any music [...]

A few weeks ago I posted an article about two of my Cummins co-workers who had integrated a Nexus 7 tablet into their vehicles. I was really impressed by their ingenuity and was inspired to inject a little more tech into my 2013 MINI Cooper. You'd probably think my car would have all the tech bells [...]

There seems to be a plethora of Bluetooth audio products out these days.  I had been interested in wireless headphones but the price has been a huge factor in why I don't have them.  Battery life is also an issue...when you have a compact device, you are really limited in how long you'll be grokking [...]

Ion Cassette Adapter Bluetooth_1

Anybody with an older car can relate to this: You have a smartphone with all the latest Bluetooth connectivity, but your car stereo is still oh so 90s with its cassette and maybe CD player. No USB. No AUX port. Certainly no Bluetooth… until now. Ion has made it possible for any Bluetooth-enabled device to [...]

My car doesn't have Bluetooth connectivity, so I have to plug my iPod into the Apple-specific input jack in my car to listen to music through the car's speakers.  If I had the Kinivo BTC450 Bluetooth Hands-free Car Kit, I could add Bluetooth streaming and hands-free calling just by plugging into the 3.5mm audio jack [...]

One of the few features Apple has yet to integrate into its iPods is the ability
to stream audio wirelessly via bluetooth. With the large number of electronic
devices and accessories either already available or coming on the market with
built-in bluetooth, it seems like Apple should finally make it a reality. But until
that magic moment, iBluon has created the TD02 (available through Brando), a small, lightweight Bluetooth audio transmitter
engineered to connect to the iPod's connector/sync port.
