edit: When I posted this review a few days after getting my BrightPlay, I mentioned occasional tiny / momentary dropouts from my two Android devices. I don't know why... perhaps some kind of crazy adaptive behavior between the BrightPlay and the devices, perhaps the colder weather or something... but either way, in an add'l week with many hours of listening to the BrightPlay, the micro-dropouts have gradually disappeared to almost-never occurrences, AND overall "clean" range on tap from both devices has improved to boot. I still can't get solid playback off my probably-non-aptX laptop though, and I'm still not holding the BrightPlay responsible.
***

There are a lot of "I'm not an audiophile, but..." reviews of this posted. At the risk of self-qualifying, I *am* an audiophile (or at least a pragmatic one). I've tried previous generations of Bluetooth receivers to hook up to home stereos before and they were basically unlistenable on a halfway decent system. On the whole, the BrightPlay sounds way, way better than any of those I tried, including a Sony receiver that cost twice as much (and which still seems to be for sale at the same price!).

I won't say it's equivalent to a direct wired connection, because so far, it's not. Dynamics / overall sense of punch do suffer a bit. But it's still night and day vs. *all* previous-gen receiver designs I've toyed with, and probably as good sound-quality-wise as Bluetooth audio currently gets. It's probably fine for all but the most critical listening applications. I've been listening directly in front of the speakers all day and have actually been surprised at how much sonic detail *does* survive Bluetoothification via the BrightPlay.

This review is in comparison to the Belkin F8Z492TTP Bluetooth Music Receiver:

Audio Quality:
The BrightPlay receiver is miles better than the Belkin in terms of Audio Quality. I use it at my desk to connect to my desktop speakers. The Belkin sounded like my old Napster songs with very low bitrates, even with distances between the receiver and phone at < 3'. The BrightPlay comes in crystal clear and equal in quality to plugging in an aux plug directly into the phone.

Power Input Design:
This is the only downside to the BrightPlay. Rather than having the small brick with a long wire plugging into the back like on the Belkin, the BrightPlay plugs directly into an outlet. I found it as an inconvenience, as my power outlet was rather far away.

Build Quality:
Overall the same, but the Belkin has that infamous piece of metal to add weight and reduce range, whereas the BrightPlay seems great all around.

Conclusion:
I'm glad I found this, after much searching and reading reviews on Amazon. Audio Quality is the most important feature in a bluetooth receiver, and I agree with everyone else who reviewed this one that it is better than the rest.

I set this up to my home stereo (independently very highly rated audio amplifier and speakers) and found I had no true stereo image. Some sound from one side only. Switching the RCA inputs reversed the lack of sound from the speakers to the other side. I then tried this unit on my computer and found it seemed to work more like it should, i.e., speakers seemed to have a better balance. I returned to my "audiophile" system only to find the same thing happened again and this time I used an upgraded mini to RCA set up (not the one included with the BrightPlay Home HD 4.0). I sent emails to the company two times regarding my findings and both times there has been no response from BrightTech. It appears that a nice audio set up reveals a weakness with this unit, or I simply have a defective unit. It seems BrightTech doesn't want to address the issue for me. Advertising says CD quality but I don't know who makes a monaural CD player. Am I being misled?? I have apparently wasted my $ since I assumed it would work and threw out the packaging and cannot return it now and the company will not respond.

Plugged it in, connected the speakers, tested with an iphone 5, ipad 2, Surface Pro, Nokia 1020, Nokia 810 and kindle fire HD, all recognized the device instantly. Sound is as good as any other bluetooth adapter, price is fantastic. It works, its easy, its convenient. Very happy with this.

This has completely changed how we listen to music now. I have two sets of good speakers wired in my walls so when my receiver died, I just wanted to replace it. But I also wanted to be able to stream music from my iPhone 5s without having to plug it in all the time. I found few highly rated receivers with built-in bluetooth. Or the highly rated ones are very expensive. So I found a solid, inexpensive receiver (Sony STRDH130) and added the Brightech Brightplay. It works flawlessly. I have it paired with both my iPhone 5s and my iPad mini. Unlike some reviewers, mine works even without having a direct line of sight. If I go upstairs it will disconnect, but I if leave my phone in the kitchen, about 20 feet away from the Brightech and behind a wall, it still works great. It was simple to install and simple to pair. Highly recommended.
