Bluetooth Audio Options

BucketmanBucketman Call meSkraggRegistered User regular
Hello forum,

I was musing about this in the TV thread, but I feel like it doesn't belong there. I was looking at sound systems and due to the limits on my TV I wound up with a Sony HT-CT 150. Not a bad system overall, but its older and didn't have bluetooth built in, or an ipod dock or anything. Now sony has special adapters for this, but they cost around $200 and thats more then the speaker system. I have 3 HDMI ports, and Digital in/out and AV sound ports on this thing, so I was wondering if there was any kind of adapter I could buy that would fir into one of these and allow for bluetooth signal?

Thanks.

    Monoprice has a couple Bluetooth music receivers you can try, and you can hook it up to your soundbar with a cable like this; or at least I think you could cause that port on the Bluetooth receiver looks like a standard 3.5mm stereo port. Cannot vouch for these kind of devices, but that's basically the same thing as the Sony adapter except the Sony adapter uses a proprietary DMPort which may give you a bit more functionality (e.g. like the ability to advance to the next track by pushing a button on the soundbar remote or something).

    I put this in the TV thread, because I don't pay attention, apparently, but here it is:


    There are all kinds of options available for dock connector -> HDMI that should work, or that soundbar has RCA in, so you could do Dock Connector -> RCA (RCA being the red/white cables).

    You just won't have the wireless bluetooth option, but it's a lot cheaper.

    Logitech makes a Bluetooth receiver that puts out stereo RCA as well. It works decently. It you wanted to go wireless.

    (Runs somewhere in the $50 to $100 range)
