However what I am trying to do is get music, wirelessly if possible, from my phone (Nokia 5800 XM) to just one stereo i.e. from one end of our lounge (where I want to sit) to the other (where the stereo is). It’s a fairly simple stereo with RCA inputs. The main thing I want to achieve is being able to control the music selection from the phone. Distance is about 7 – 8 metres.
I can run a long 3.5 mm phono cable – works but is ugly because it’s not really practical to hide the cable and potentially dangerous (tripping). I tried a Logitech FM transmitter but it wasn’t powerful enough so I returned it under DSE’s great 14-day return policy.
I could use another AV sender/receiver setup but that still involves a semi-wired arrangement to the phone at the TX end.
I have a new phone coming shortly (Samsung Galaxy S from Clove UK) which has DLNA in it. I first heard of DLNA yesterday and didn’t know the phone had it when I ordered. I still know little about DLNA but the stereo is certainly not equipped with it so I think that is not a solution unless I buy a receiver with DLNA which sounds expensive.
Is there any Bluetooth solution? I am thinking of something along BlueAnt lines but don’t know that products exist that will do what I am looking for.
Maybe I will have to run with the AV sender idea - DSE have AV TX/RX sets for $64 which sounds very reasonable.
