So I figured I would give this HomeSpot NFC Bluetooth Audio receiver a try while shopping for an amplifier that will receive bluetooth & is within my budget. I needed a Y connector with an 1/8" male to attach to this HomeSpot & an RCA end to connect the speakers to as well. I figured I could get enough out of my phone & this unit to use one speaker but was skeptical of getting both speakers to work.
So I was very impressed when I heard sound out of both speakers, streamed from my phone. I can't turn it up loud enough to rattle the windows like I use to with the stereo, in fact at a little less than full volume from my phone & the speakers distort but it is loud enough you'd have a hard time holding a conversation with someone in a room of 25 ft X 40 ft. My family doesn't like it too loud anyway & I don't want to advertise my stereo system for the next five-finger discount. So this little unit has saved me over $150 for an amplifier.
The only downside I have found with this unit (reason for 4 stars) is it seems to lose it's connection every once in a while at random. I've had this unit since March 2016 & have lost the connection four times so far (today being the end of May). When the connection is lost there is no sound what-so-ever. The phone is still connected to the unit so the sound doesn't transfer to phones speakers but the unit will not put out any sound to the speakers. I need to completely unplug the unit from the wall to reboot it, turn off the bluetooth on my phone then reconnect everything again. Bit of a hassle when you just want to sit back, relax, & listen to some tunes with some deep base but so far, it's only been a few times I've had this issue.
If your looking to re-invigorate some old speakers (shelf speakers are the best for this little unit but it will handle some larger floor speakers (10" sub-woofer, two mid-range, two tweeters per speaker)) then this little unit will handle the load nicely.
[Update 11.3.2017] - I'm getting a bit more disappointed in this unit as rebooting it is becoming a big hassle now. Almost every other week I have to reboot this unit on average. Sometimes it's twice in a week, then it'll run for three to four weeks without a hiccup. Then I have to reboot it again. Still, it does better than a new $800 system that no one uses anymore because there's Pandora, Amazon music unlimited, iHeart radio; everything is streamed nowadays.
Here is my opinion after I returned HomeSpot and bought Mpow Steambot
- Power stays on all the time, so you can connect music source anytime without touching the unit.
- Good sound.
- NFC will connect and disconnect music source automatically.
- Include Power AC adapter.
- Lower priced.
- Very poor BT connection. No matter how close to the unit if anything in between the transmission, music will be disrupted.
- Very strong BT connection. Almost no disrupted even through walls and barriers.
- Good sound.
- Unit power will automatically shut down in few minute after no BT connection.
- To reconnect, you have to manually turn the power on, it is very annoying.
- NFC only used for to pairing BT, so turn on and off the music, BT connection has to be done by manually.
- No AC power adapter included.
- Higher Priced. (But few more dollars was worth it.)
What is big deal of good sound if signal is constantly Disrupted?.

I can't comment on the efficacy of the NFC feature - no idea how to use that with an iPhone, so I just paired the phone to the Rx in the normal way.
I'm going to buy another unit for my car, to replace the old BT receiver I put in there a couple of years ago. This HomeSpot one fits the bill perfectly for my particular use case:
* I don't want a built-in battery - who wants their car broadcasting BT messages for hours while parked, until the little battery conks out?
* When that little battery finally dies, after weeks of charging/discharging in the car, the BT module may be unusable.
* I don't want hands-free calling built in - my current BT Rx has this, and it's a royal pain with an iPhone. I never know whether the iPhone's call audio will go through the Ford (Sony) radio or through the BT Rx. Several times somebody's called me while I was driving, and I had to open the glove box and SHOUT AT THE BLUETOOTH MODULE TO MAKE MYSELF HEARD!
* Micro USB input means I can hard-wire it into the car using a dashcam hardware kit ( Spy Tec Dash Camera Vehicle Hard Wire Kit - Micro USB Compatible with Mini 0806, Mini 0806 and Mini 0803 | Car DVR Camera Recorder Dashboard Dashcam | Black Box Video Recorder ).
I use it with my Samsung phone connected via a Yamaha amp and Cambridge Audio minx speakers - sound quality is quite acceptable streaming Spotify or mp3 files stored on the phone. Connection is good and stable, pairs straight away and works quite happily with the box in the front room and my phone in the kitchen (speakers are in the kitchen too) - so 5 or 6 metres through a brick wall.
The box itself is small and discrete with a complete selection of cables in the package. As others have said, the instructions aren't particularly informative but it isn't rocker science.
Overall I'm pleased with the performance and value - hopefully it'll last for a decent length if time (unlike a lot of "cheap" tech.).
As regards detecting any distortion, the best I could come up with was to compare a direct phono lead connection from a Maplin USB DAC driven by a desktop against a cheapo Bluetooth audio transmitter plugged into the headphone jack of the same DAC plus the HomeSpot. Then listened on Grado SR80 open-back headphones on a RASMA professional audio mixer with headphone output. No difference in audio quality detectable though my ears ain't quite as good as they used to be. The direct connection might be just a tad brighter (which difference could well be in the BT transmitter), So definitely up to HiFi standard.
There's a half second delay using the BT transmitter and receiver combination. Don't know whether this is in the receiver or the transmitter or both.,
