How to add Bluetooth streaming to any speaker

With this inexpensive gadget, you can turn any standard speaker into a Bluetooth-enabled sound system.

Bluetooth speakers are finally becoming more abundant, allowing you to wirelessly stream music from your phone or tablet. No docking stations, no auxilary cables. Ahh, freedom.

Ready-to-go Bluetooth speakers are convenient, but what if you already own speakers that you know and love? With Logitech's adapter , you can add Bluetooth streaming to just about any speaker for just $40.

A plug-and-play solution, the Logitech Wireless Speaker Adapter acts as a bridge between your existing speakers and your Bluetooth-capable phone, tablet, or computer. Here's how it works:

As with any wireless streaming solution, there will be audio compression. Meaning, you'll see a slight degradation in sound quality. If that's a no-no for you, consider looking into Wi-Fi based streaming products, or if you're an Apple user, consider the Apple TV. Be warned though, these alternative solutions will set you back much more than $40.
