It fulfils the propose for what it is intended...
Miguel Francisco 08.01.2019
It fulfils the propose for what it is intended and it does well. No interruptions. I use it to connect the audio of my iPad synths Plugins to the input of my hardware synth and send all together (processed by effects) to the sound board using less inputs from it. Also avoiding the hum of my iPad headphones output which is huge when connected to the PS and main. Via the bluetooth, this hum is not transmitted along with the sound and therefore makes ideal this integration for my setup. I would say that the sound via bluetooth is not perfect, but my plugins emulate old analog synths the are not intended to be HiFi either. Paring was a breeze and connection is always auto without my intervention. I must say that my iPad is an old one (iPad 3 retina) so I have no idea if that will work so for newer iPads that have lower consumption bluetooth version implemented. So check before if you intend to buy it for such usage.
That said I would not expected 5 stars at this price on quality and sound. All the rest gets 5 and could get even 7 if possible ;-)
Thomann shipped quickly as usual. Price is a very very low one.

Simple and functional
Archyx 05.04.2020
I got this thing to have a quick backup sound source in hobby grade live situations when background music is needed but DJ hardware or other "proper" sound source isn't set up, and it does its job great for that purpose. The single-button user interface is perfect for this application.

Soundwise I don't have anything to complain about. Bluetooth alone is likely more limiting than the rest of the device.

The magnet attachment on the bottom allows the unit to be slapped onto any flat steel surface. I usually have it on the side of my mixer and connected with short 0.5 m TRS cables. It's compact and even has balanced line outputs. The plastic housing feels solid and doesn't squeak or twist.

The only thing I don't like is the wall wart style external power supply, but at this price it's expected and allowed. At least it has the German TÜV GS certification along with the CE mark, so I'll expect it to fail safely if (and when) it does.

Bluetooth in church
AVTECHUK 21.11.2021
I purchased one of these bluetooth units for a church I attend for use in a simple ipad controlled system. I wanted a device that had balanced Jack outputs and was easy to pair devices with. The Fun Generation BT receiver matched the requirements but was also very cheap. I was very skeptical on how effective and good it would be. I have been rather pleased with the unit. I feel that the bluettoth distance in line of sight is on the shorter side (10-15m) and really needs to be line of sight once over 10m.
The audio quality seems good considering it is beening send over bluetooth. Users find it easy to pair and operate. Construstion wise it is plastic but we have had no issues and seems well built.

Works perfectly
Lythe 21.10.2021
I bought this to play music from my iPhone through a mixer in my bedroom / home studio. Using it couldn't be simpler: hold the single button to initiate pairing, connect from the iPhone, and it immediately works. The pairing is remembered and it will automatically reconnect later. I also appreciate the inclusion of balanced audio outputs, especially at this price. The basic function of the device works very well.

Two minor downsides:

- I live in the UK, and the device only has an EU "wall wart"-type power supply without a replaceable cable. Thomann included an EU-UK mains adapter for free, but still, I would prefer either a replaceable cable on the PSU or a UK PSU. The DC input is an unusual voltage (5V, 2A) so i can't use a spare 9V PSU.

- The pairing button has a bright blue LED ring surrounding it which is permanently lit when it's paired. I wish that this could be turned off, or that it would use a smaller, less bright LED.

Does what it says on the tin and does it quite well
Archion 11.01.2022
There is not much to add to the previous reviews.
Only thing I wish it had were the buttons or a knob for adjusting the volume. Also the working distance could have been a bit longer, but considering the price I really cannot complain.
Also I was a bit worried about the Bluetooth latency, considering it works still with version 4.0. Fortunately it was surprisingly low, so no problems in that department either.

Perfect for increasing the versatility of any system.
Jeroen De Clerck 07.05.2021
Over the years I have bought the TP-Link HA100 multiple times, because they are extremely versatile in their use. I have handed these little gadgets out to friends because I even kept some spare! While browsing for an audio interface this gadget caught my eye, because it fulfills the same purpose but with balanced stereo output and a more sturdy build quality.

Having now used it for a couple of weeks I can recommend these gadgets for any system that has balanced stereo inputs. The magnets are very strong so I can stick it on the bottom of a metal desk element, out of sight. Once paired, connection is lightning quick, and it automatically reconnects when powering up. Only con is that is its a pretty ugly case and looks cheap.

Great little add on
sebica123 13.05.2020
Was looking for a more easy way to play music before going live and went for this product. It does what it needs to without breaking the bank.
Pro:
ease of use
price
Cons:
average sound quality
reliable range about 10m

Can't complain for the package that you get. It does the job. I would recommand for playing casual songs before a rig when you are not fussed about the best possible quality.
