Works well with minor limitations
on May 29, 2017
After more than a decade of substandard home audio, I was finally able to find a skilled (marine electronics!) technician to repair the awesome Aragon amplifier-driven system my wife bought back in the 90's when we were making money.
This led to a new problem: most of her CD's are faux-pop-jazz from the 90's...Fourplay, Michael Franks, and so on. You can see why her delight in being able to use her system was actually a net-negative for lovers of fine music.
Over the last decade, I've built an outstanding collection of playlists that provide hours of bliss, but it's mostly stored on my phone and my desktop. The best desktop powered speakers are no match for what we were again able to enjoy.
We tried RCA cables out of the headphone jack on my phone, but the output was limited and we couldn't get enough input to make the stereo project.
I bought the HomeSpot device on a whim for about $25.
This has allowed us to listen to great music during dinner, as I'm able to have the phone with us about 20 feet away and control what plays and what needs to be skipped.
Sound quality is just okay, since we're talking about Bluetooth and MP3 -- but it's still better than Spyro Gyra on CD and it's better than the powered desktop speakers we were using.
I'd recommend this for anyone with an old-school stereo system that sounds better than any modern "sound bar."
