Thought I'd share this in case anyone else is considering the same thing. I've been using a lightning plug to put tablet/cell sound into my system. Yesterday, I received this BT receiver from Amazon. Haven't tested the range yet but one thing I like is being able to pickup my phone and not have the hardwire connection glitch out (usually triggering Siri in the process). If the range is correct, I should be able to walk the entire room, making it easy to get out from behind the console on cake, bouquet, etc.
