Question

Entry Level Receiver / Sound System

I have a small space, I don't want my speakers taking up a lot of room. I'd like to accommodate my inputs - android box, dvd player, chromecast and a spare HDMI, just in case. I'd really like to take advantage of a small speaker, like a bose wireless, bluetooth speaker.

My list of my 'requirements' are simple:
- 4 HDMI inputs.
- I don't need a soundbar, surround sound or any of that (remember I'm dealing with a small, condo-like space).
- Audio from the HDMI inputs need to be output to a wireless speaker.

FWIW - my TV doesn't support audio out (silly me, I didn't think to look for that when I purchased the TV). Hopefully someone can recommend a receiver that will support these things.

Clarification Request
Most of the entry level receivers now have BT

But usually only for receiving and not transmitting. I know the Sony STRDN1080 offers both though, it’s overkill for your needs though.

I would consider any of the entry level AV receivers from Onkyo, Denon, Yamaha, etc. Going with simple bookshelf speakrs will sound much better than any bt speaker system. It’s really easy to hide a couple of modest runs of speaker wire.

See my reply above

Sure, but Most of them have BT *receivers*, not Transmitters, which is what the OP desires.
