Customer Reviews

The item works great....transfers signal very well.

No one in tech support (non-native English speaking) could produce any specifications to determine whether the unit was operating as designed so I returned it.

I use this most of the time to connect the Bluetooth audio output from my iMac to the stereo, so that I can listen to internet radio using real speakers.

I was seeking a way to watch t.v. in my basement while running on the treadmill and lifting weights in the early morning hours. The T.V. had to be turned up way too loud so that I could hear it while on the treadmill. I started by purchasing an FM transmitter and using my arm-band fm "walkman" type of device. The reception was terrible unless I stood right next to the transmitter.

I bought the Motorola S9 stereo headset and the Motorola DC800 stereo adapter. These two paired easily and the sound is unbelievable. I can run on the treadmill and watch "loud" T.V. and there are no reception problems. I would highly recommend this set-up to anyone.

I use this most of the time to connect the Bluetooth audio output from my iMac to the stereo, so that I can listen to internet radio using real speakers. The computer and the stereo are in different rooms, not even adjacent rooms, and the DC800 has no difficulty connecting to the Mac. Sound quality is very good; I have not had the problems that some other reviewers mentioned about sound quality.

The DC800 will do more, though. I can listen to whatever the stereo is playing, such as broadcast TV or a DVD, via Bluetooth headphones (I use Motorola BT820s). I can listen to my iPod through the stereo using a tiny Bluetooth iPod adapter (from Sony) that attaches via the iPod's docking connector. Now, it's easy to connect an iPod to a stereo by just plugging a stereo cable into the iPod's earphone jack, but then you have to leave the iPod near the stereo or use a long cable. With a Bluetooth connection, you can sit across the room, holding the iPod, and use the iPod's controls to select music. You'll also need some sort of remote for the stereo's volume control, because the volume setting on the iPod has no effect on the volume of the Bluetooth connection, at least using the Sony adapter.

The DC800 was easy to set up and easy to pair with the Bluetooth devices I have. It has no controls other than a power switch (I leave it on all the time) and a button to press for pairing. It just works.

One thing it WON'T do is two Bluetooth sessions at once. I can't play the computer's sound through the stereo via Bluetooth and at the same time listen to the stereo's output via Bluetooth headphones. There's no real need to do this (just pair the headphones directly with the computer), but I tried it to see if it works -- it doesn't.

I definitely recommend this product.

Great idea. Very convenient and easy to set up and use, but the novelty

is going to wear off quickly as the sound quality is quite poor.

We've used this to stream music from bluetooth devices to a stereo

system and it doesn't perform well, even with the bluetooth audio source

right next to the DC800. As it buffers the incoming audio, the pitch

varies quite noticeably. It's like playing an old record, with one hand

on the turn-table alternately slowing and then speeding up the playback.

It'll drive you nuts! Save some money and buy yourself a decent cable instead.

I've owned this product for 2 or 3 years now. I love it, period. I came here hoping that Moto still made these so that I could grab a second one for the bedroom.

The way I understand it is, the majority of users fall into one of two categories: 1) People want to use this with bluetooth headphones in some way/shape/form, and 2) People want to play the music on their computers and hear it on their home stereos.

I've always thought Mototola mis-marketed this thing. I don't know all the possibilities with the first option, but the second one is dead simple. I can play music and not have to run a long cable from my PC to my stereo. Moto pushed the first option because they could also sell the matching headphones.

At the time, I was so happy to find this device because it meant that, aside from electricity, my laptop experience was completely wireless. And at the time, this device cost me 2 Jacksons, which was a bargain. The only other device at the time that gave me similar functionality cost about 2 Benjamins. I see now that there are a few other manufacturers that make a similar device in a similar price range.

The pros:
-easy to set up. My laptop has integrated BT, and it sniffs out the DC800 no problem.
-audio plays. That's all I want it to do, and it does it well. The quality is good, and the way I figure it is, if you're happy with headphone jacks then you'll be fine with this.
-there are so many devices and software packages out there that will also do audio streaming, but they require codecs and network configurations and so on. If all you want is to use your stereo speakers instead of your pc speakers, this is for you.

This product fits my purpose. I have a home theatre and I get yelled at if it's too loud. I put on my headphones and voila, silence in the house. If I get a cell phone call it rings through the headphones and silences the stereo. Works great.
