Hands-On Review: Logitech Bluetooth Audio Adapter streaming seamlessly to your A/V receiver from your smart TV, Roku, phone, or any Bluetooth device.
This thirty-dollar powerhouse adapter from Logitech is a godsend!
For those who scoff at the tinny simulated surround sound, sans base, in soundbars and have a true audio/video receiver amp independently powering separate speakers and hooked up to a thumping subwoofer, especially surround sound setups with a true five-plus speaker setup, this device is for you.
You can also plug it into any speaker with a headphone jack and transform it into a Bluetooth speaker instantly.
Nice as a new expensive amp is, your old expensive amp has worked delivering the best quality audio for years or decades.
Maybe you have an old one for a gaming setup in the den and a newer one for movies in the living room or bedroom.
Either way, you do not need to buy a Bluetooth-enabled A/V receiver to reach the Bluetooth sound with Logitech’s reliable genius and quality sound in this little cube of a gadget.
The Logitech Bluetooth Audio Adapter has a 110v power cord, a button on top to link Bluetooth devices, and three inputs: one audio input to fit 3.5 mm jacks and one RCA jack with the traditional red and white inputs.
This thing could not be easier to use.
I bought a new TV that would only fit far from my surround setup in the living room, and I was resolved to not have surround for the foreseeable future.
Well, a good friend says to me: “see if the Samsung 4K has Bluetooth.”
And what do you know, The Wolf solved my problem!
Going in and selecting Bluetooth in the sound menu on the TV, I saw the Logitech listed there once I pressed the button on the mini-cube.
And then, BOOM, the bass rumbled throughout the house and perfectly clear audio of great range came from the array of speakers, just as if the TV was wired in.
The same worked with the iTunes and Spotify on the smartphone.
Crystal clear sound projected perfectly!
The Logitech Bluetooth Audio Adapter for Bluetooth may be tiny but it packs a wallop of great sound abilities into its $30 encasement.
The only complaint I have likely has more to do with my TV: once enabled, the Logitech cube will not stop playing through the amp or when the amp is off attempting to connect sound to it, interrupting the use of the TV.
If you have a little one napping, like I do, you may have to unplug the Logitech and the big sound, but there is no off button and the TV kept on bringing up a prompt to connect every ten seconds, even though the amp was off.
But that is a small price to pay for superior sound on-demand via Bluetooth!
