The good news is that you’ve got many excellent solutions to wirelessly play music through your existing home stereo receiver, no matter how ancient it is. With any option, you’ll be using a small device that’s receiving audio through a wireless protocol. Samsung printer scx 4521f driver download for mac. It’ll plug right into the back of your home stereo receiver’s line inputs and play.

Here’s an overview of three best ways how to play your music wirelessly over your home stereo receiver, ordered by level of tech skill you’ll need to set it up:

USB 3.1 Type-C Adapter Compatible with HDMI®. Wall Plate w/ 3 RCA Jacks - White. MSRP: $7.99 In Stock. Wall Plate with 2 RCA Jacks. MSRP: $7.99 In Stock. It doesn't matter how old or new your amplifier is, you can always connect our phone, tablet, pc or laptop on it and play your music. It is very cheap and yo.

  1. In essence, you'll need to connect the left and right RCA phono ends of the RCA phono to 3.5mm jack cable to a suitable RCA analogue audio output on your amplifier, and then plug the 3.5mm jack in.
  2. Similarly, you could probably just go with an mp3 player or smart phone that has 3.5 mm/headphone out and use a 3.5mm to RCA stereo connector. That bypasses the USB requirement, and the need for the TV to be on. This assumes your receiver doesn't have a 3.5mm input otherwise you'd just get a 3.5mm male male cable.
  3. I have a question for y'all. I have a pretty old Onkyo TX-SV535 that still works great and pumps hard-wired music throughout the house and porch/patio. I currently have an aux cable into RCA jacks to hard connect an iPhone or Droid but would like to go wireless from the phones so I can control it from the porch/patio.

Bluetooth audio receivers are the easiest and arguably the most reliable retrofitting audio solution available. They wirelessly pair with your device on a one to one basis creating a secure, direct but short-range connection, usually about 30 feet. Follow a few simple steps, and you’ll be streaming your music in under 2 minutes. You don’t need any real skill to set this up, and more importantly, you’ll probably never need to troubleshoot it. Once you know the rules of Bluetooth, it works exactly as you’d expect it to. No surprises here, and that’s very reassuring if you’re a beginner. There’s a good reason that Bluetooth is a standard feature in any smartphone or tablet available today. DAK started offering its Bluetooth Upgrade in 2012, and it’s only grown in popularity because it’s just to fool proof to set up.

Wifi audio receivers connect to your home network and receive streaming audio routed through a central hub (ie: your wifi router) from your computer or smartphone. The range extends as far as your home wifi network, and many wifi audio receivers support multi-room setups. That means you’d be able to play music from a single music source over multiple stereos in different rooms of your house, provided they’re all connected to the same wifi network. Bluetooth audio receivers aren’t quite there yet (but will get there soon enough).

Though initial set up only requires a basic knowledge of connecting to wifi networks, if that’s as far as your wifi knowledge goes, you may find it challenging or frustrating should you ever need to troubleshoot. And, unfortunately, wifi connections are more prone to connectivity issues, audio dropouts and hiccups than are Bluetooth connections.

Looking for a new project to challenge your computer networking knowledge? An advanced, but fully customizable multi room solution is to build your own wireless receivers. You’ll have full control over how it works and what it’ll do for you. This step by step guide here uses a Raspberry Pi to build a multi room audio system. In the author’s words, “You should have an understanding of networking, intermediate to expert computer skills and maybe some linux experience too.” Full disclosure: I haven’t tried my hand at this one just yet; it’s too much of a time commitment. Let us know about your experience if you’ve attempted this project!

Bottomline: Bluetooth audio receivers and wifi audio receivers are both great ways to stream your music over your existing home stereo system. Bluetooth is the easier way to go and is usually your best bet if you’re new to the world of wireless audio. Wifi is the better option if you need something that offers multi-room audio, though it has a steeper learning curve.
