Hey folks,

Looking for something just like this Logitech Bluetooth Music Adapter, but I need one that's Bluetooth Version 3.0 or 4.0 because I need better range:

Thanks

How much range are you looking for? I have that Logitech and I can stream from across the room, about 25 feet.

I found one BT 3.0 receiver, but it's only on this wholesale site:

More than what it offers unfortunately. I want to use this when I'm outside on my deck or by the pool. So, at the minimum, 50' going through 2 walls. Ideally, 150' going through 2 walls.

That is crazy far. You're going to be better off finding a creative way to run standard speaker wires.

That's why I needs a class 1 Bluetooth 3.0 or 4.0. It has a range of 300' feet and a higher transmission speed and throughput. Speaker wires wouldn't help here unfortunately.

What devices are you connecting? Any possibility of using a wi-fi solution instead?

If you're trying to transmit to bluetooth speakers, check this one out with a reported distance of 200' ....

It's a Nexus 7 tablet. Right now I use a Wifi solution. I use a Logitech SqueezeBox app on the tablet that sends signals to my htpc connected to my home theater which is running Logitech SqueezeBox Server and controller. It works, but it's annoying. Seems like every time I go to use it, it's something. The htpc went to sleep even though I told it not to, or the squeezebox service isn't running, or this or that. I want to simplify it. I'd rather just stream directly from my tablet to my receiver. A Bluetooth 3.0 or 4.0 receiver would work perfect, but unfortunately it doesn't look like one's available. Oh well...was worth a shot.

You know....I saw that one. I'm curious about it for sure. I got scared away by the negative reviews, but I might look into it again. Thx

Often times negative reviews are the result of either user error or simply not understanding the capability of a product. The fact that there are positive reviews makes it worth checking out especially if you have no other viable solutions. Also, often the more detailed positive reviews will identify the errors from the buyers posting negative reviews so be sure to review the positive reviews as well. The nice thing about Amazon is they'll take it back if it doesn't perform to your liking.
