I bought this device to connect either my Alexa Echo or my iPhone/IPads to my stereo receiver and easily switch between them. That is unfortunately not so simple without “forgetting the device” through your Bluetooth settings. It is quite annoying that the Bluetooth receiver will always connect to your last paired device, disabling it will not succeed as it immediately pairs it again. The only way around a “looping” connection is either to unplug the power cord of the receiver or “forget” it.
Synopsis: for the attractive price I’ll keep the receiver for now as I do not see a much better multi-device unit out there for a reasonable amount, but I am hoping for an Alexa friendly solution soon that would allow disconnecting from my sound system via voice as easy as connecting and allowing for other pairings of choice.

Have had this for a few months now and use it every day. I have a 1980s vintage Pioneer stereo receiver and some newer Pioneer bookshelf speakers in my bedroom. This system was in my living room but I bought a Yamaha surround receiver with built-in Bluetooth to replace it. I was curious to see how good music from my phone would sound through my new receiver and it sounded good enough that I decided to set up my older system in my bedroom with this Amazon branded Bluetooth receiver. It does not sound nearly as good. There's a fair amount of compression artifacting so highs and lows are lacking. As you would expect, high bitrate MP3 and FLAC files sound better than Spotify. The sound quality is roughly on par with a cassette tape player. Maybe a little better.
That being said, it still sounds heads and shoulders better than any dedicated Bluetooth speaker or sound bar I've heard. And it's acceptable for the bedroom although I'd never use this in the living room where company might hear it.
I connected the BT receiver power supply to the switched outlet on the stereo receiver so it powers up and down when I power up and down the stereo with the remote and it works flawlessly and connects immediately and reliably.
I use it for wake up, relaxing for sleep, and sex music nearly every day and it works well in that role.
Unlike most of the direct from China versions you find on eBay, this one comes with the mini phono to RCA cable needed to connect it to a stereo and a power supply.
So, I recommend it if you want to re-purpose an older 2 channel receiver without spending a lot of money. I only spent twenty dollars and was able to add decent quality music to my bedroom and keep this old receiver from the landfill.
Well, I was gob smacked when I went to install it and try it out. It not only works, but works good! Alexa found it straight away and I was up and running in no time. $20 and this thing is flawless! My Alexa…er, Echo Dot, sorry, but well, if you have an Echo device, you know what happens paired to it instantly. I happen to have her pretty close to the system though, about 4 feet away, so I don’t know the limitations on distance, but I imagine it can’t be too bad.
It is quite fun using voice commands to play music and hearing Alexa through my stereo system. (Sometimes she chooses what to play…that’s a bit un-nerving. Startled me so much the first time, I ran to the phone to call Amazon to find out if this was normal or if their robots got out of control. So you know, I was told it is normal eventually, depending on how much you use your Alexa, she eventually develops a small bit of personality).
The Amazon basic Bluetooth receiver does no more and no less than the more expensive ones. A great buy at it’s price!
