Belkin Bluetooth Music Bridge

Ian is a multimedia reviewer who would seriously consider selling his wife and kids to own the latest electronic gadgets.

Ever wanted an easy way to get your music stored on your iPod, phone, laptop or desktop computer to play on your home stereo system?
Well look no further because Belkin have just made it child’s play.

The Bluetooth unit can store up to 6 paired devices of your choosing. I don’t own an iPhone or 2nd Generation iPod Touch with Bluetooth capabilities, but my Nokia and Sony Ericsson mobiles connected to the Music Bridge straight away, as did my Dell Laptop and iMac. Both computers recognised the unit as Bluetooth headphones and streaming music to it was effortless.

While the sound quality might not be music to the trained ear of an audiophile, I found it to be quite adequate if a fraction tinny (which was easily tweaked using output settings at the source). But honestly, I personally only know two people who would seriously complain about the Music Bridge sound quality – and they both own $50,000+ stereo systems.

There are other products available for streaming music to your stereo, along with hard-wiring and USB options, but two thing’s are a given when you buy a Belkin product – simplicity of use and build quality, and at just $79.95 the Music Bridge is one of the cheaper options out there.

    the apple airport express is a little more pricy but extra features also come with it.... not blue tooth though (airport) so for phones etc this is pretty cool
  • Nic says
    Very classy. I always seem to lose my standard RCA cables, this would potentially solve all problems! I wonder what would happen though if two units connected to it and started playing??
  • Alex says
    Fantastic idea! Sure beats the logitech 5.1 with audio cable and ipod chilling on our flats lounge floor :p

    Better to use a media extender.

    aaah its amazing how technology is getting smaller (in size) but bigger! and its really intense! its crazy how back in the day the first mobile phone was a brick and now there are iphones! which virtually do anything!! whats next? here is a picture of the first GB of memory...with the size of todays size. Whats next? A GB will be the size of a grain of salt! Its mad. Moores law states that every 18months the power of computers will increase..this has been true! It shows how technology is growing !
