Bluetooth Audio Transmitter

by Herrmannc1899 on Sun Sep 14, 2014 10:32 pm

Hello fruity crew.

I have been experimenting with some bluetooth technology in some of my arduino projects, and that got me thinking. How do those little cheapy bluetooth speakers work? They sell them for like twenty buck all over the place.

I have half a mind to buy one and take it apart just for the transmitter, and then hook it up to one of your Amps. Of course, I would much rather be able to buy a chipset/breakout board with one of these transmitters ready to go.

Do you know of any prototype friendly methods of integrating bluetooth audio into a project?
If so, would you kindly point me in the right direction?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Regards,
~Chris

The bluetooth modules in speakers will be client devices. You couldn't turn them around and use them to transmit to other speakers, if that's what you have in mind.

Sorry, I was throwing around my words a little bit. To be a little more clear, I am interested in building my own bluetooth speaker.

What sort of bluetooth hardware would I need for that?

You would need a BT receiver and a microcontroller running the BT Audio stack. Your original idea was probably the best - hack an existing BT speaker.
