    So I ordered a 'Bluetooh' Music receiver that was around 700 INR. Biggest mistake ever.

    The shipping was great, received the item the next day after order (today).

    Blinking Red

    Pairing was a bit of a hassle with the iPhone refusing to pair on the first go. Tried another device but still the same result.

    Finally rebooted the whole system and was able to pair.

    Audio quality was as expected, decent. However the biggest disappointment was that the Bluetooth Stream would stop if I took the phone beyond 4 ft or so from the receiver.

    Have requested for a replacement. Here's hoping their customer support is as speedy as their shipment.

    Unboxing and setup of the Yell Bluetooth Music receiver -

    IMG_3490.jpg

    Nice, solid packaging. The Indian in me wants to use it as a coin box :D

    IMG_3492.jpg

    The reverse of the packaging

    IMG_3493.jpg

    IMG_3494.jpg

    A foam piece and another plastic sheet to hold it in place.

    IMG_3495.jpg

    Tiny receiver, this sticker is made of anti-slip material. So you can place it on a surface and forget about it.

    IMG_3496.jpg

    I have average size hands. So this receiver is really compact.

    Contents -

    - USB to Micro USB cable
    - Female 3.5mm to RCA out
    - 3.5mm to 3.5mm stereo cable
    - Power adapter
    - Operating instructions
    - Thank you note :D

    The cables are of decent build quality, especially the connectors on the 3.5mm cable.

    IMG_3504.jpg

    Well finished, no rough edges.

    Pulling out the underside of the Receiver reveals the power input and Audio out.

    The connector swivels slightly to make insertion and removal easy.

    The power adapter. Though this device is rated for 200 mA, it puts out 500 mA or generic USB levels of current.

    I hooked up the USB power cable directly to the USB port on the receiver of my Bose Home theater. Worked without a hitch.

    IMG_3505.jpg

    Used both the audio accessories (3.5 mm cable + Female 3.5mm to RCA) and hooked up to the front A/V input. The system recognized instantly that the front input is being used.

    Ready to rock.

    Pairing on Bluetooth was a breeze. instant recognition and paired. Tried three different devices (iPhone 5S, iPhone 6 and Lumia 1020) and the result was the same.

    Range - Tested 20 feet. Didn't need more than that.

    Quality - Well built, definitely worth the investment.

    Value for money - The proper range makes it worth the expense.

    Cheers!
