Belkin Bluetooth Music Receiver for iPhone 3G/3GS / iPhone 4 / iPod touch 2nd Gen (F8Z492-P)
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It will connect.

Cons: Abysmal audio quality. This is the only con that matters.

Other Thoughts: The audio on this thing is horrible. The theory that it's the transmitting device which is the problem is bogus, not because it might not be the case, but rather because other Bluetooth audio receivers work properly.

With an iPhone, EVO 4G, Samsung G III, and multiple laptops connected to this Belkin I got universally wretched, compressed audio. These same devices streaming through the equivalent Logitech device work perfectly (and the range of the Logitech was also vastly superior, even after removing the weight plate from the Belkin). Note my audio setup is B&K Pro preamp -> Marchand electronic crossover, feeding an Adcom multi-channel amp driving bi-amped home-built Dynaudio speakers.

These same sources also work perfectly with my Etymotic Bluetooth headphones (not counting the annoying ever-present amp noise in the Etymotics). It is NOT your device, it is the Belkin - I suspect it just doesn't have sufficient resources to encode at high bit rates, but that's just a WAG.
