Hello all......

I have spent a fair amount of time searching around various sites for a Bluetooth Audio adapter.
What I'm trying to find is something that will receive a stereo music signal from my phone/pda/laptop, and simply
plug in to any audio player, via RCA or 3.5mm jack..... feeding the music to whatever it's plugged into.

I've found plenty of products for bloody Ipods etc..... and they all do it backwards to what I'm trying to achieve.
That is, they all seem to have a transmitter gadget to put out a signal, to be received by Bluetooth headphones etc.
The devices I'm playing music from all have bluetooth, so I need a receiver only, and preferably fairly small and
battery operated so I can plug into my car easily.

I found some product by "Blue Monkey" that was a transmitter/receiver..... comes with both.
I was just concerned that such a product may only work when using both the transmitter and receiver together, or would
it support any signal coming to it?? That would work for my PDA, but not the phone, and I don't want extra gadgets hanging
off an already bluetooth-enabled PDA.... really need a receiver only kinda product.

Cheers in advance for any tips..... help make me a happy geek!!

OK...... I've found a few now.  Still can't find anywhere to buy them, must be very new products.

PROLinK PBR301 and....

AIR2U Portable Audio Adapter

Where can I buy one of these??
Sony also have a product, but it's desktop-style only (too big, no batteries)

Not all Pocket PCs support A2DP on their software, so using a dongle or adapter could be the way to go. For example, check our review of Bluetake HiPhono.

I am not sure this is still available, but you should be able to find this or a similar device.
