Hi guys,

I'm really frustrated when I want to play music from my MBP or iPhone and I have to have a cable hanging around all the time.

I saw this Logitech Wireless Speaker Adaptor for Bluetooth. Actually, I tried one in PC World, seemed to work perfectly. I was around 50meters away trying it and playing some dubstep for people who passed that audio system. Just for fun lol

Is there any other good products like this to choose from?

Cheers

I find that for in-home use the Airport Express is more convenient than bluetooth. Its an integrated solution for OS X and iOS and it provides higher quality sound.

Oh yes, but price is 2-3x bigger. Could the gen before the current one replace my router too?
What is the model number for that?

Currently I have NetGear router which was provided with my Virgin Media Broadband. By replacing I mean connect it to my router and then disabling Wi-Fi on my old router.

Yes, the previous gen can be used as a router, it was dual band, just not simultaneous. So it can replace, extend or enhance your Netgear wireless network.

I use 2 of these in my house for streamin music from Macs or iPad:
