I have an iPad, my wife has the new Google Nexus 4 smartphone. In the past I've just hooked up devices like these with a good old mini-stereo to rca style cable to get my music to the receiver. However, now that I have been using air play with my iPad to my Pioneer SC-1222k, i'd like to pursue an option that would let us both go wireless with our other receiver (pioneer 1020k) in the living room.

Has anyone had much experience with bluetooth receivers?

I was looking at this option from Belkin.

or this one from logitech.

I was just curious how the sound quality was streaming over bluetooth. I wouldn't use this set up for critical listening, but it would be nice to go wireless while cooking, etc.

I have that Logitech and it works fine. It's in an AV cabinet and I am able to stream to it from a Thinkpad about 15 feet away (in an interference-filled NYC apartment). Bluetooth audio isn't the best but I think that "cooking" is the perfect application for something like this.
