5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic streaming tool, 28 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: LINDY USB Portable Wireless Audio System (Personal Computers)
I bought this as a replacement for my QED Uplay, as I thought the sound quality of the uPlay was very poor (and little 'clicks' were audible - probably through interference), despite some excellent reviews.

I read that this Lindy model offered better sound quality, despite losing the bluetooth functionality of the uPlay(which I didn't mind as it seemed that the bluetooth connectivity was the root of the uPlays problems!). And it really does. It will never truely beat cable connected audio - but I'm a bit of an audiophile, and I thought the sound quality was pretty amazing.

It works simply by plugging a supplied dongle (the size of a regular data key) into your computer, activating the dongle and the receiver, then audio is wirelessly transmitted to the receiver. You can then connect the receiver directly to your hifi, AV receiver or headphones using the correct cable (not supplied). No need to 'pair' any devices up (as you did with the uPlay - very annoying). The speakers on your computer are deactivated whilst using the Lindy, as all audio is sent to the receiver.

This device is amazing, and at about £50, cheaper than the Uplay.

The uPlay may suit people who want to stream music from their Iphone, Ipod Touch or other bluetooth enabled device. But for straightfoward sound quality, the Lindy wins.
