Well spam magnet, there you go…


#4

What does this even do?


#5

Allows you to use a bluetooth audio device with something it was never meant to work with. Like your old walkman tape player.

$33 on amazon and relatively good reviews:

I have a question tho: can you plug it into an input and receive audio from another device? I want to use BT from my phone to my car’s receiver, but i dont want to but the $100 BT receiver add-on. will this work if i plug it into the aux input?

edit- nvm there is a receiver model specifically for what im looking for: http://www.amazon.com/Miccus-Mini-jack-RX-Bluetooth-Receiver/dp/B0038MA11U/ref=cm_cr_pr_sims_t

No, you need a receiver, not a transmitter.


#9

Yawn. Really?


#10

hahaha BOUGHT IT!


#11

Most bad reviews complain about short range and battery life.


#12

I’ve had bad luck with Bluetooth audio transmitters and receivers insofar that the cheaper ones tend to not transmit low frequencies well (or at all). Can anyone find a frequency response range for this gizmo? I’m coming up empty.


#13

All of my audio needs are on my tablet, phone, or laptop to go outbound to an audio receiving device. I need that port to be a innie not an outie. Isn’t that the usual situation most face? You know to receive bluetooth from my devices and send the sound to a device that actually produces sound.


#14

i just found the receiver/input device on amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Miccus-Mini-jack-RX-Bluetooth-Receiver/dp/B0038MA11U/ref=cm_cr_pr_sims_t


#15

Umm, when you Woot-Off something made by Mini-Jack, is it now a Mini-Jack-Off? Just wondering.


#16

Then they need to not call it a transmitter,or you need to double check.


#17

… I got nuthin


#18

Now, I’m really confused. I assumed that since it was a male 3.5 jack that it is expecting an output not an input.

UPDATE: Ok… I get it now. I can see how this would be useful. I was looking at things from a portable device-centric point of view and not understanding it’s real purpose.

I can actually see one really good use for this, however I really don’t want to shell out the money to see if it will.

If it did work, this would be exactly what I need to plug into my Amplitube iRig

Im sure it does work great, but I am really not willing to take the risk…
