Great little device. Works as receiver OR transmitter BOTH.
I really like this product.
The description of this device does not do it justice.

It is "bi-directional". It has both RCA in and out jacks on the back.
The device will pair with BT A2DP stereo profile compatible headphones for listening.
__OR__
It can also be paired with a laptop or BT enabled MP3 player/cell phone to RECEIVE stereo audio streams to your home or car stereo system.

I have tried both configurations and it works very well.

This unit can be powered by a USB jack whether that be an PC, Cigarette lighter adapter or in-dash head unit.

I purchased my from Radio Shack for $20.

I have a Treo 750. It paired with the device and worked great. I want to use this for tailgating. I have a 4gb card in my phone. Now I can DJ from my phone and use ORB if I want to have access to everything. I can't believe how far it worked. I was easily 40 feet from it through 3 walls and there was no intermittence. I'd recommend it.

I received this item just a few days ago. I recently bought a GE 99000 Bluetooth USB adapter at a near-giveaway price at Tuesday Morning ($12.00), so I just had to have something to use it with. The Motorola DC800 Bluetooth receiver/transmitter was the cheapest thing I could find ($37.00 INCLUDING shipping) so I bought it through Amazon. My intent was to use it to connect my laptop to my stereo receiver. It arrived very quickly. It was a much smaller physical size than I thought it would be. Hookup was a snap, just plug it into the AC receptacle, hook up a pair of RCA cords from the Motorola DC800 output terminals to the input terminals of my stereo receiver, plug in the GE USB transmitter to my laptop, and it worked instantly - no other software was needed. Sound quality is not the greatest, but is plenty good enough for my needs, as I will be using it mainly like a pair of plug-in computer speakers. Don't get the wrong idea, music quality is not at all bad, but is not up to an audiophile's standards. I haven't had any skipping or flutter, but my laptop is only about 20' from my stereo receiver. In short, I'm very pleased with the Motorola DC800 and give it an unqualified recommendation based upon a few days' use experience.

The Motorola DC800 will also act as a Bluetooth transmitter, and it has a pair of RCA input terminals. I have not tried that feature, and probably will not have any need for doing so.

I read so many things about this product that was not sure if I did the right thing when I bought it.

But I can say now that I do no regret it, it works great and the sound quality is great. I hooked it up to a Yamaha receiver and got it working in seconds.

The only bad thing about this products is the transmission distance, although the manual says it works up to 30-feet, it should better say up to 20-feet. Also, you cannot pair multiple devices.

I will definitely buy it again.

I've had the DC800 for more than six years now, and it's still going strong. Initially, I bought it to play music on my PC through my home stereo speakers. Now I use it to stream music from my smartphone to my home stereo. It has never failed -- what few dropouts there have been have always been attributable to any of the 4 different smartphones (iPhones to BlackBerry) that I've used. The music quality is perfectly acceptable, particularly because we're talking mp3 files. Unless you have an audiophile system, and an ear attuned to these kinds of things, you won't notice any difference between playing music through the DC800 and playing it via more conventional means.

I have also paired the DC800 with the Motorola S305 Bluetooth Stereo Headset, which enables me to go the other way -- that is, listen over stereo Bluetooth headphones to what's coming from my home stereo (usually audio from the TV or DVD player). The only problem here, and it is inherent in Bluetooth, is a quarter-second delay or so in the audio. That means that audio from the TV or DVD player is slightly out of sync and behind the image on the screen. It's not much of a problem with sporting events but it can be annoying with talky movies.

If you have a home stereo system, and you have other Bluetooth capable devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, etc. with music, the DC800 is a must-have.

I loved it! It allows you to hook up a non Blutooth product and turn the audio into a Blutooth format which then allows you to hook up to Blutooth headphones. I strongly recommend that you purchase the Turtle Beach PX5 Headphones for the XBox 360 or playstation video game consoles? You can use this device to pair up say your T.V to them and listen to the videogame and still watch your favorite program like me at the same time. Yes with out a dought it gets two thumbs up!

This device actually does what it says and it was very easy to set up and pair with my bluetooth headphones. I currently have it connected to my TV so I can listen to the shows or movies I watch while I ride my bike on the stationary trainer. I have also used it as a receiver to play music off of my iPad through the home entertainment system.

My neighbors are also happy. They don't have to hear my TV when I ride because I am using my headphones instead of cranking up the volume on the TV so I can hear it over the bike. The range is excellent also. I've been at least 30' and several walls away with out a skip or reduction in quality. The range may be more than that, but I haven't had to go that far.

I highly recommend this device.
