TuneLink device streams audio to your home stereo wirelessly
One thing I’ve missed, however, is the ability to stream the thousands of tunes on my Android phone to my big home theater system downstairs. It’s a great system, 500 watts per channel of Rotel Class D power driving Definitive Technology speakers, and when I’m not watching movies on it I love to play tunes. It’s like being there.
Being as sedentary as I am, I liked the idea of not having to get up to change discs, or of having to load server software on my PC to stream tunes from the computer to my Oppo Blu-ray player.
Yeah, I know: how lazy can you get? Pretty lazy, actually. But it isn’t all about being lazy; it’s also about convenience – as well as the ability to continue a tune, playlist or album I started playing on a wireless system upstairs when I park my butt in the home theater downstairs.
Then the folks at New Potato Technologies sent me a press release trumpeting the introduction of their TuneLink Home Bluetooth system, which is designed for just such purposes. I got in touch with them right away and they were kind enough to send me the system to audition.
