Idea for nifty bluetooth device

9 posts in this topic

Posted

Does anything exist that will plug onto a 'Phono' input on a stereo and recieve bluetooth Audio signals from a Bluetooth enabled laptop? Its just I've sold my desktop in favour of a centrino laptop, and I want to go totally wirefree. I have a big bedroom, and the stereo is the other side of the room. Just for tidyness, I thought that this bluetooth thing would be a good idea.

I think you may have misunderstood. I want to play my MP3s on my Laptop, but hear them through my stereo without using a stupidly long audio cable. Plus, when SPV2 goes bluetooth, it would be pretty cool to play your music through your stereo, whilst it's in your pocket.

If you havent misunderstood, then I'm sorry, but what would WinAmp do? ( I use WMP).

Thanks

Sorry - You're right, I was probably being dense

Somebody else had a thread about the CarBaby or iPod attachments that broadcast over FM. I thought they were illegal (still do actually) but what do I know? They're still for sale apparently. Dunno if you can connect one to a PC, but it might fit the bill.

As an added bonus you should be able to pick up the signal on any radio within a reasonable radius (50m?), but then so will your neighbours... hhmmm

I dunno if a Centrino Laptop has Bluetooth... I was under the impression that it was just WiFi..

Of course u can always buy a bluetooth USB dongle.

Yes, that was my intention. The laptop i'm getting is the Dell 500m, which doesnt have bluetooth built in.

You could just DIY mangle a £49 jabra headset to build a 3.5mm audio out. i'm sure it'd be a doddle to install, and bonus you could blootoothly do voice recognition from the other side of your bedroom.

However, would your pc have a profile for headsets?

I wouldn't know. I think that would depend on the Dongle I get. I'm not too up to scratch with it, but don't Bluetooth devices have specific Classes that determine what profiles are available? Also, would the current audio profiles support Stereo audio? I guess i'll have to read some white papers on the Bluetooth standard. It'd be interesting to know exactly how the Audio is transmitted. Would a Dongle or profile have to convert any output Audio into MP3 format then transmit? I doubt pure audio without compression would fit into the standard Bluetooth bandwidth.

I've just had a brief read through of this whitepaper...

Advanced Audio Profile

If you read the section on 'User Requirments and Senarios' and 'Audio Streaming - Send Audio - Recieve Audio' then it seems to me that the profiles/technologies are available to do this kind of job.
