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.

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.

It works. Too easy to install. The proof is in the sound. The range from my iphone is fantastic! The fidelity of the sound is CD quality, and the dynamic range is fantastic! If you want a BT receiver that sounds as good as a wired connection, this might be for you! I've bought four different kinds, and this is the best!

Works perfect! Its easy to connect and it remembers your last connection and connects back automatically when in proximity. The range is outstanding. I was able to connect at 50 ft. There is no loss in quality whatsoever from my Ipod being being physically connected to the speaker and through this bluetooth unit. If there is, I'm sure you need some kind of electronic equipment to analyze it. I like the fact that I can have it connected to the electric wall socket and ON at all times. This is one of the few products that work as advertised.

The Brightech Home HD just gave my OLD 1982 Onkyo receiver a new lease on life! It is paired with my phone and I use it to stream Pandora. Super easy to install and sounds very, very good. You will not be disappointed with this purchase.

I bought this as part of my minimalist bedroom system with a Topping TP22 amp and Pioneer's BS22 speakers. I use an iPod Touch as the input. The sound is clean and nice.

Pairing is also easy - I've had no issues there. You can pair two devices at once (as advertised) but not while the first paired device is playing, as an FYI.

What's not immediately apparent from the picture is that it's designed to plug right into a wall, as in, the wall prongs are right on the back of the "puck". In order to get it onto my dresser, which affords better BT connectivity and easier access, I used an extension cord. I would have preferred that there was a cord. But, it's a small gripe for a well-thought out product.
