i got mine today. put it through hi-fi (panasonic) and it sounds great. no cutting or peaking. put it through genelec monitors and it sounds good too. range for me is about 5m. still though, i had breakfast this morning in the kitchen, put on spotify while browsing the net on my phone and listened to soothing sounds coming from sitting room. its pretty cool!

@captain midnight. would love to know what its like on multiple devices too.

Complete impulse buy here.
Can anyone tell me where the usb goes and where the 3.5 mm bit goes.

Unfortunately, i don't think my speakers will work with this.

Likewise, although for me, it was the solution to the problem I never had in the first place! (Much like all great solutions)

Logitech x240.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Logitech-970.../dp/B000RY58PG

Speakers -> via 3.5mm -> Subwoofer.
Subwoofer -> lead -> control centre (with power on/off switch).
Control centre -> lead -> via 3.5 mm -> smartphone/laptop etc.

The only usb slot would be on a laptop.

You plug the USB into a power source. I use a spare iPhone plug ie pop the USB into the plug and plug straight into a power socket.
Then just pull the 3.5mm into your source in to the speakers. That's it. For now I have a really basic cheap set of Logitech speakers purchased from lidl a few weeks ago. This solution is perfect. But I plan to pick up a better set of speakers.

If you use the speakers for pc or laptop you could feed the blue tooth audio out into the laptop line in or mic

Or the just directly to the speakers with some stand alone usb power

Got it working.
Never knew you had to plug it into the wall.
Not bad.
One less wire i suppose.

Mine arrived today.

It really is well worth it for the money.

Plugged it into a USB plug and the 3.5mm from my dual phono cable coming from my speakers.

Sounds fine to me

Folks can anyone tell whether this would work to connect this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/WD-Live-Stre...31&s=computers to my speakers across the room?

Does it matter if the audio out from the WD LIVE TV isn't done via usb?

Thanks for the swift reply, that's a pity. Wonder is there any alternative that could be used.

I'm just after receiving this but don't know how to get it to work. I have speakers with a usb port on it and also with an auxiliary in socket. I have the bluetooth dongle plugged in and the 3.5mm lead out of the dongle and into the auxiliary too. Don't know if that's right but the laptop isn't picking up any bluetooth devices around?
