A Look at Some Bluetooth Audio Receivers

Lastly, my wife and I have purchased some new speakers. However, even though the speakers worked fine, quickly after setting everything up my wife wanted to play music from her cell phone. After studying the manual of the audio amplifier, I realize that we would have to connect the phone to one of the inputs of the amplifier by using a Y adapter. Unfortunately, when connected this way, the phone could not be charged. This to us seem to be a major drawback. However, we then figured out another solution. In order to charge the phone, we will have to plug it in to a power supply. While we still could use the Y adapter, the plaque of the Y adapter is to take and blocks the charge connector to attach to the phone. Therefore, we figured that we would …

How Much Range to Wireless Speakers Have?

When setting up a pair of wireless speakers, it is quite important to realize what range you can achieve from the speakers. The signal that is traveling from the transmitter to the speakers is being broadcast usually in a unidirectional fashion. Now that sounds kind of technical so let me explain what I mean by that. Unidirectional means that the signal which is coming from the transmitter is being sent out in all directions equally.

So that is why the majority of wireless speaker designs put an antenna inside the transmitter which sends the waste into each direction equally. However, that means that the signal strength decreases rapidly as you move away from the transmitter.
