Belkin Bluetooth Music Receiver
Haven't you heard? Docks are dead. It's time to go wireless, and the Belkin Bluetooth Music Receiver is the easiest way to do it. Connect this $25 dongle to any stereo (or anything with a "line in" or "aux input" port), and you can wirelessly stream music from any Bluetooth-enabled device. That includes all iPads, nearly any smartphone, most iPod Touch models, and most new tablets.

The good: The affordable Belkin Bluetooth Music Receiver adds Bluetooth streaming capabilities to anything with an audio (auxiliary) input, or a pair of powered speakers. It comes with both RCA-to-3.5mm and 3.5mm-to-3.5mm cables.
The bad: It's "wireless," but needs to be plugged into the audio component (and a wall outlet).
The bottom line: The Belkin Bluetooth Music Receiver is a cheap and easy way to add wireless audio streaming to any powered speaker system or audio component with a spare input.
