Accessory Lets Your iPad Stream Music Wirelessly to Any Speaker

iDevice accessory maker XtremeMac has two new products on the market today – the BT Connect and the BT Home Connect Portable Bluetooth Audio Receivers. These receivers allow Apple owners to turn their accessories, such as home or portable speaker systems, into wireless devices.

With the BT Connect and the BT Home Connect, previously non-wireless audio systems can be converted and controlled by an iPhone or iPad, and with Advanced Audio Coding sound quality, music from these devices is guaranteed to sound great.

So how does it work? The BT Connect is attached to a non-Bluetooth enabled speaker through the audio jack, and then it is able to function like any other wireless device. The BT Connect works for 10 hours on a fresh package of AAA batteries, so you can keep the music going all night long for that next party.

You’ll also love the small form factor, which makes it easy to take the BT Connect on the go.

The BT Home Connect works in a similar way, but it is designed to be used with a traditional home speaker system, equipping the system with Bluebooth capability and better sound quality. It has a 3.5mm-to-RCA converter for use with a wide variety of home speaker systems and audio receivers, and its plug-mounted design is a clean and simple addition to your home theater system.

You can get the BT Connect for $59.95 and the BT Home Connect for $49.99. Both receivers can be purchased from retailers like For more information, visit the XtremeMac website.

    I have been using a similar device (Miccus BluBridge) for over a year. It’s great! Smaller than a tube of lip balm–I keep it on my keychain. Much better than this IMO because it’s so small.
