Using Bluetooth technology with your stereo system is just now being integrated to allow you to stream your music wirelessly. The standard has been around for several year but has just been upgraded to allow streaming music playback through speakers. This is a huge advantage when it comes to playing music around the home or in a space that you want to be moving around freely.
Bluetooth is a wireless transmission carried over radio waves. The signal works best for with close range use, but this area of technology is still growing and will get better. (Bluetooth on Wikipedia)
How does it work?
Wireless synchronization known as ‘pairing’ allows two devices to communicate specific data and, in our case, stream music.
Why do you need this?
Every since Bluetooth came to smart phones, the market has been there. Especially after the integration of the iPod into the iPhone, Bluetooth needed to be able to play music wirelessly over radio waves. Now that it’s possible, most smart phones come with Bluetooth as a standard function, but no way to harness it’s wireless music capabilities. The Bluetooth enabled speaker systems allow you to embrace the new era of wireless streaming music and data.
