I will change this if anything changes but this is day 1 impression.
I have a projector that is 18' back from the main screen, I wanted to run my 5.1 surround from the front of the room with my entertainment center in the back of the room without wires.
Pros
-The unit looks good, small enough it blends in, with a small blue light that tells you it is connected and working.
-Setup was simple and self explanatory. Plug in power, plug in coaxial (or whatever you are going to use), search for bluetooth signal on sending unit and sync.
-The system found the receiver without problem and no dropouts so far with people walking between constantly.
-Connection is strong and everything works as it should.
Cons
-The sound was off from optical direct from ps4 or dvr (very deep bass, little to no treble), but was fixed with some audio tweaks on the sound system.
So as of day 1 I am completely happy with this purchase.

The so called quick start guide didn't say anything about how to pair different Bluetooth devices. I had to search and download the manual. It's actually quite easy. No setup needed. Just discover the device. Can't change the name and there is no pairing. To pair a different device, you need to disconnect the existing device. There is no switch to disconnect. So if you have many devices, you will have to remember which one you have paired before. Fair enough - for simplicity. If only this was mentioned in the quick setup guide.
I connected using the coaxial cable supplied to my DAC. Sound was good. And range was good too.
I am quite happy with it after figuring out how to use it.

Easy to pair and connect. Give you the option to use an optical audio connection with give MUCH cleaner sound.
(Added note: If you're connecting with your iPhone, you shouldn't have any issues. I bought primary to connect my iTunes with my home stereo. I noticed that the laptop had a difficult time linking with the Receiver. I learned I had to turn off bluetooth on my iPhone to give my laptop priority.)

So excited I stumbled across this! I had an Apple Airport Express. A handful of years ago it cost me $99, just so I could listen to ipod through our stereo. After Windows 10, it was not supported anymore and it has been collecting dust ever since. I stumbled acorss this, and on a whim purchased it. Works so good! Plug it in, connect to stereo, and connect bluetooth. That's it. No problems, syncing, disconnecting or anything.

So far so good; gives an older Sony AV stereo receiver Bluetooth capability. Easy connection in my case into front panel RCA input jacks with supplied RCA cable. Then connect it to AC power, enable Bluetooth on Iphone and play audio from the Iphone through the stereo! Belkin even includes a digital coax cable for an alternative hookup if desired. This also makes the iphone a new handy wireless remote for the stereo, which doesn't require a direct line of sight! Another concern of mine was whether Bluetooth signal would activate the receiver which is in a cabinet behind a glass door. ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEM WITH THAT!

I've had this for a little over 6 months at this point and all I've got to say is Belkin did a great job with this. I've owned 3 other bluetooth stereo interfaces like this at this point and this is by far the best one. I've never had a problem with my LGv10 connecting to it. And I've been substantially impressed that I can go completely in the next room with my phone and I've still yet to have any problems with audio delay. I chose this one in particular for my home theater receiver because it has an optical digital out and a coax digital out. I've got both, but wanted the flexibility to use either of them. Money well spent. Recommended.

I ordered this. The unit arrived. One I received (HD VERSION) GSA2000, doesn't have any other connection, but the 3.5mm plug. No Optical, Coaxial or RCA as mentioned on Amazon or website. It also only came with a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable, no other cables were supplied.

I was VERY disappointed.

I contacted Amazon, and shipped it back. They sent me a replacement unit (Which I only asked for because Belkin said it should come with multiple connections)

Just received new one today and YES!!! It is correct now. Apparently there is a mixture of units that only have 1 3.5mm connection with same model number.

If you order this and receive and it only has 3.5mm connection, SEND IT back. The one your suppose to receive is exactly like the one pictured with multiple connections.

I've purchased two Belkin SongStream Bluetooth receivers. One is used on a stereo system in our living room, and the other is used on stereo in a small building located by our pool. The device will only pair with one blue tooth device at a time. Others in the immediate area have to be turned off before pairing a new device. It works well within 20 feet provided there is line of sight with the device. We cannot walk around the yard with the device and have consistently good music. It is nice when a product "just works" as advertised.

1) Every time this bluebooth device starts and stops receiving audio it plays a 'dink' sound through the speakers (Its not my apps, this only happens through bluetooth and not headphones). It's somewhat annoying and uncessary, you can litterally press play/pause and you will continually hear the dink sound.
2) the device goes through phases of working perfectly and barely working. nothing is chaning with my mobile device, it is still sitting in the same place 5 feet away not being touched and the audio breaks up bad. During this time of repeatedly loosing a connection you hear the wonderful dink sound over and over.
I would recomend the belkin car model but this home model could be better. Spend a few extra dollars and get something that you will enjoy!

The quality of the sound is pretty good. The device works as expected.

The only thing I docked a star for is that you can NOT pair the device with multiple phones at the same time. The description says "The HD Bluetooth Music Receiver can pair with and store information for up to eight mobile devices, making it easy for family members, friends, and roommates to share music from their smartphones." Sneaky, sneaky! Some bluetooth speakers on the market can connect with multiple devices simultaneously, which is what we expected from this product.
