SiriusXM Audiovox docking station

Have a Audiovox Sirius dock which receives home satellite music. Problem is it only has a RCA mini jack output. I want to be able to broadcast this signal to a wireless speaker via Bluetooth. I have a HP desktop computer which has Bluetooth capability but I don't know what else I would need to accomplish this. iTunes doesn't work so any help would be greatly appreciated.

You need a Bluetooth transmitter like this one https://www.amazon.com/TaoTronics-Bl...NsaWNrPXRydWU=

Get an RCA to 3.5mm female adaptor and plug this in. Connect your speaker to the signal transmitted by this unit and it should work.

Problem is I don't have an amp to plug into and I want to broadcast the signal wireless (Bluetooth / Wi-Fi). I do have a desktop computer which has both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi but don't know how to make that connection. I assume I would need a media player app (so I could control the volume) which would receive the signal from the Audiovox and broadcast to the speakers via the computer. The problem with that is my HP Desktop doesn't have a RCA mini in port (only an out one). Is there a stand alone Bluetooth transmitter that I could use which has volume control? My wireless speaker (Bose) doesn't have a way to control the volume)

An inline volume control would work - or find a transmitter with volume control...

But as an alternative, don't all SiriusXM subscriptions include streaming services now? If you've got WiFi and Internet access, just stream from any mobile device instead of even using the satellite?

Your Bose speaker does not have any volume control? Is it a powered Bluetooth speaker or just a passive speaker requiring power and a Bluetooth receiver? Can you advise the model number of the speaker?
