Any bluetooth transmitter specialist out there?

I need a recommandation for a bluetooth transmitter.
Something ~50$ or cheaper, medium range at worst (~10 m). I need something compatible with either the audio jack or RCA.
I have a yamaha rx-700 receiver and will change for a teather one in a year or two (or 3...). As of now, the goal is to extand the audio when we listen TV wich is a bit far when we're on the dining room.

thanks,

I love this:

Yeah, hear good comments on this one.
I hesitate between the Logitech and these:
https://www.costco.ca/MEE-audio-%e2%80% ... 50460.html
https://www.amazon.ca/Avantree-Audikast ... way&sr=8-7

Coatso one have good reviews (plus costco warranty and easy return) and the amazon one is recommanded by tomshardware.

3 good contenders. Decision, decision...

The logitech is a receiver not a transmitter?????

I have BT transmitter dongle that I bought for $16US from Meritline, a Chinese company that no longer exists, in 2012. It works for a few hours and then needs to be recharged by USB, I personally find that it is less useful than I expected and I really don't use it.

This is what it looks like.

Monoprice has a similar open box unit for $11US plus shipping.

I'm sure you can find other options.

Make sure whatever you use has aptX and you should be fine. I found a cheaper one (like $30) on Amazon and it works fine for a similar purpose. Make sure you can power it with wall (AC) power so you don't have to recharge it - some you can only use after a recharge which doesn't make sense in your application.

Not just aptX but aptX LL or HD is best. You will need both the transmitter and receiver to be aptX LL/HD compatible for it to work however.
