I have an older reciever, an onkyo TX-DS787 which doesnt have bluetooth . I was just wondering if there is any type of adapter that I can buy to recieve and transmit a bluetooth signal to and from the unit. My goal is to be able to listen to music from my ipod through my system, but more importantly I would like to be able to somehow listen to the tv/radio with my bluetooth ear buds at night when everyone is sleeping. Any ideas out there? Thank you for any info you can offer.

You may need both a Bluetooth receiver, such as those mentioned by jdsmoothie, AND a Bluetooth transmitter, plugged into the receiver's headphone jack. This would have to be fed by sources connected to the AVR's analog inputs only, and it would introduce audible time delay between picture and sound when used with video sources.

With both devices you will likely have to manually pair every time you use them. And be careful to choose only devices that (a) come with AC adapters or at worst can be charged via a standard USB connection and (b) actually can operate while plugged in and charging. Surprisingly, many BT portable devices do not meet these criteria.

Now that would do the trick! There would still be audio sync issues for video-- impossible to avoid -- but at least it provides both send and receive functionality in one package, and is designed for indoor AC powered use rather than battery-powered portable applications.

Nice find!
