Logitech’s Wireless Music System for iPod will turn any MP3 player into a wireless music-streaming device, and it sounds fantastic.
The system consists of two components: a Bluetooth transmitter that plugs into your player’s headphone output, and a receiver that connects to your hi-fi system or self-powered speakers.
The transmitter has its own rechargeable battery, so it doesn’t leach off your player’s; the receiver is AC powered.
One transmitter can be paired with up to 10 receivers, but it can stream to only one at a time. A button push switches the transmitter to the closest receiver/speaker combo. Stand-alone receivers sell for $80 each, and the transmitter is compatible with Logitech’s nearly identical Wireless Music System for PC.
Wireless coverage was excellent—we had no problems achieving the promised 33-foot range. Hats off to Logitech for adapting Bluetooth wireless technology so well.
