Making Your Speakers Mobile: Logitech Bluetooth Audio Adapter Review
Posted on April 12, 2014 12:00 AM by Techgage Staff
Have a pair of speakers kicking around, not being used? Want to kick back and stream audio from your phone, rather than sit in front of the PC? Both of these scenarios can be aided with Logitech’s new Bluetooth audio adapter. Connect it to a set of speakers, pair up, and listen. As we find out, it truly is that simple.
I listen to a lot of music at home, and I would wager that a lot of you do as well. Our living room television has the Pandora app built right into it, and when we aren’t watching something on XBMC, we are listening to music. When not in or around the television, I leverage the pair of Logitech Squeezeboxes, reviewed here and here, to listen to music. These are nice because they allow me to keep my music library in one central location and share those files with the networked Squeezeboxes with relative ease. Finally, when I’m on the go, I stream audio from my iPhone to my Mazda’s stereo via Bluetooth. My point in all of this is, I like music, and being able to leverage my devices is an important part of my daily routine.
For this review, we are looking at the Logitech Bluetooth Audio Adapter. What it lacks in a creative name, it more than makes up for in ease-of-use. The concept is simple: It’s a small adapter, only 2″x2″x1″, that connects to a Bluetooth-enabled smart device. Once paired, it allows the user to stream audio to whatever powered receiver or speaker that they might have. This can be done via a 3.5mm or RCA cables.
