    I need a widget. I want bluetooth from my old stereo system to the new nifty-spiffy bluetooth speakers. I can find the other direction - from tablet -> speakers but I want my stereo -> bluetooth (or wifi) speakers. I'm getting tired of 50 ft of 14-18 gauge speaker wire all over the house. Seems silly to buy a new receiver when the one I have works just fine. Right now the DVD & VHS players go thru the receiver (which is also the AM/FM receiver).

    Any ideas?

    If your receiver has a headphone jack, I believe there are bluetooth transmitters that will plug into it.
