  1. There are many music streaming hardware devices out there designed to allow you to beam tunes around your home or office, and now Motorola has its own solution with the Moto Stream. The tiny unit works much the same way other...

  2. Other than the fact that multiple devices can "Simultaneously connect" (Why would you want more than one audio source at a time??) what is the difference between this and my 5 year old Bluetooth receiver that I bought for $20?

    If anything, I'm waiting for small devices like this that can "bridge" their bluetooth connection to allow better wireless streaming among multiple speakers (ie A speaker in the front of a room and one in the back, without being attached via speaker wires) would that not make more sense??
     
  3. Does anyone know what the latency will be. Is there any chance I could use this for amateur DJ-ing?

    Your 5-year old BT device can be attached to a receiver? and if so, would you be able to control it from your phone?

    Some of the middle to higher end receiver have this functionality but you have to buy a separate BT attachment ($100+ for my Pioneer receiver).

    I'd like to purchase, but a little pricey at $50 for the functionality it offers.
     
  6. My 5 year old BT device can be attached to any receiver (Audio Out to the Blue Tooth Device, which is then paired with any compatible laptop/tablet/smart phone). If control it you mean streaming audio to the device with simple volume up & down then yes - Even when Vista came out I could use a laptop with a bluetooth adapter to stream from my laptop to a bluetooth receiver? Any Blutooth device with a headphone jack can be connected to 10+ year old radios, most had the RCA inputs, which you can get an adapter for mic>RCA and be able to stream from your device to the radio? Bought my recent receiver for $15? Google "Bluetooth Audio Receiver" the price range is huge but I've never had a single complaint about my $15-$20 receivers.
