So Slick!

By: Ryan - 02/09/2014
This thing is high speed! Really awesome for having friends over and sharing the music from your sound system. Such an awesome idea. Wish I thought of it first. Great job guys. Also works for poor iPhone users who don't have NFC. Just need to link directly with Bluetooth :)

BT2A is Great !

By: okiedehn - 03/31/2019
I purchased the BT2A two years ago on Amazon to connect my iPod and iPhone via Bluetooth to my Parasound Zpre2 preamp into Halo A23 Amp. It has worked flawlessly! Sound quality is VERY impressive. Music is coming from high quality Apple ripped CD's via iTunes and also on-line via various sources including XM Radio, TuneIN and Spotify. Granted, some sources are better than others, but this unit for the money is simply outstanding! If/when they launch a next generation, I'll be on board to check it out!
