NOT for audiophile's...!

Summary: If you are a person who is interested in high-fidelity sound reproduction, this device is NOT for you. I was hoping it had some of the qualities of the "Squeezebox" or at least something close, I was wrong. From what I can find on the internet this device uses the "SBC codec for Bluetooth Audio" to transmit audio from the computer to your stereo receiver.
Works - but buggy, and better things are right around the corner

Summary: I own the Logitech Pc wireless Music System and have been very happy with that... it's about $60 or so on Amazon these days. It allows your stereo to serve as an external computer speaker -- so basically you can transmit sound from your computer to the stereo. I bought this because it provides the added functionality of being able to use a remote (included) at your stereo to select songs/albums etc almost like looking at an iPod.
Summary: Even though I did not buy the unit through Amazon, I feel compelled to review it. I had owned a Creative Labs Sound Blaster Wireless Music unit for a few years. I liked it even with its quirks. What I didn't like was that the wireless would be interrupted by my phone, regardless of what kind of router I used -- I tried two. The remote was also very klunky. So when I read about the Logitech Wireless DJ Music System, I bought one right away.
Summary: Sure, the Wireless DJ will play your Protected AAC's, but it won't perform across anything close to the quoted distances in the real world. The one I received wouldn't connect reliably across a distance of 30 feet with one interior wall in between the computer and audio system. It can play your Protected AAC's because it doesn't have its own player; it serves as a remote that brings up the associated player for whatever song you ask it to play from your library.
