    When we rehearse, we occasionally want to play something from our cell phones or other devices over the PA (I have one band that rehearses using in-ears, but same concept.) It would be nice to have a Bluetooth device that plugs into the PA (either via 1/4" or RCA phono or even balanced microphone) that could connect to multiple cell phones. I tried some searches but would like to hear from folks who have experience, if anyone out there does.

    I'm highly opinionated and extremely self-assured

    Yes, something like this, but in the other direction. This takes audio from a source and sends it to your device via Bluetooth, I'm looking for something to receive audio via Bluetooth.

    EDIT: it might go both ways, not sure.

    This is a great form factor, and with phantom power, but only connects to one device at a time, and it's $110, a little more pricey that I was hoping. This is definitely a candidate, thanks.

    Yeah, as soon as I posted that, I wondered the same myself. I guess a Bluetooth receiver would be the right piece of kit.

    Bought this, works great, except I keep forgetting it plugged into the back of our rehearsal space mixing board.

  8. Try this: https://www.amazon.com/Bluetooth-Ad...ocphy=9032850&hvtargid=pla-523770557921&psc=1 I have a Belkin model (looks identical) that works well into my amp’s aux input. Its range is surprisingly long. You may need to use an adapter but that’s trivial.
