BlueTooth adaptor for external sound system????

by jmpoer / July 25, 2013 6:47 AM PDT

(If I have posted this in the wrong forum...please forgive, and ADVISE where it does belong.)

I have an iPad.

The iPad has BlueTooth.

I have and external sound system that has an input that will accept sound from the iPad and works well.

The input is the 2 or 3 mm, three part jack like the one on the iPad.

Is there an external adapter that will allow the iPad Bluetooth to send sound to the sound system without a cable between the two devices?

Is this even possible? I think I have seen external sound systems for iPads that use BlueTooth, but I HAVE the sound system in place and working.

Looks like this might work.

This looks like it might work. There isn't a great deal of info at the link, but at least it sounds correct.

Thank you.
