So, you have a cool Bluetooth enabled device like an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, right? You obviously want to play your music on your sweet stereo, but it doesn’t come with Bluetooth support. No problem. XtremeMac has you covered.
The BT Connect is a snazzy little dongle that has all of the innards you need for wireless music streaming over Bluetooth. You plug it right into your stereo using a regular aux connecter, and you’re good to go. Pair it with your iDevice, and you’re done. You can now stream music wirelessly whenever you want.
As it stands, it works with the third generation iPad, iPad 2, the seventh generation iPod nano, iPod touch 4G, iPod touch 5G, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, and iPhone 5. It’s only $59.95 USD, and it should be available at most popular online retailers (Amazon, Best Buy, NewEgg, et cetera) very soon. If you’d prefer, you can always go with an Airport Express to deal with your audio, but that will be substantially more expensive. Once this device has been out for a while and we get to see all of the reviews, this will likely be the device I’ll be using personally provided it delivers on what it promises.
If you want to explore more great products from the folks at XtremeMac, you can browse their website and find some of the coolest gadgets and accessories on the market. Thanks so much to SlashGear for turning us on to this wireless wonder.Follow @macgasm
