Belkin Announces Bluetooth Music Receiver for Wireless Streaming
Accessories manufacturer Belkin today announced the launch of its new Bluetooth Music Receiver to its lineup for short-range wireless streaming. The adapter takes audio from any Bluetooth device that supports the A2DP stereo format, including many cellphones (such as the iPhone) as well as portable media players that recognize the standard, such as the second and third-generation iPod touch. Range is limited to the Bluetooth standard’s 33 feet but should be enough for wireless music in the same room.
The kit includes the receiver with cables to plug it either into a 3.5mm jack, such as on computer speakers or an aux-in jack, as well as an RCA connector for full-size home stereo components.
Belkin is shipping the adapter to the US today for $50 and hopes to ship it to most other parts of the world in March.
