Music Gateway. Get it.
Just wanted to quickly share my thoughts on the Music Gateway now that I've had it for about one week.
Verdict? Really great. Go get one.
I go back and forth between having my PlayBook and GSII connected to it. We pretty much have music playing whenever we are home so for us this little device is perfect.
I have a very small apartment so haven't had a chance to test out the range, but I can be any where in my apartment and remain connected.
If you are big music junkie, buy the Gateway immediately. You won't regret it.

Finally got around to getting one of these. I agree with your verdict -- it's great! Might need to pick up a few more of these for Xmas presents Been using it with my iPhone in my car and with my PlayBook at home. The music comes alive on my home speakers when I use the Neutron music player (for the PlayBook) https://appworld.blackberry.com/webs...28241/?lang=en.

I bought the device but I don't recomend getting it. First off it needs a seperate power supply and it needs to be plugged in 100% of the time because their is no internal battery in the device. I haven't tested this out at home but in my high end car stereo system the quality is rather poor. When your first plug in the cable into the aux supply you hear a noticeable static noise that does not go away. I've tried to use different settings between setting the master volume on the BB and my car stereo to find a perfect balance but when the music is on you can always hear the bluetooth staticky sound that I suppose is "steaming" music to car stereo. I'am by no means a audiophile I just wanted something that would play quality audio in my car but the audio quality is poor in my opinion and the fact that you have to keep it plugged in 24/7 just adds an additonal cable which makes the car dash look sloppy and an aux cable would of acomplished the same thing at a fraction of the cost.
I can't say how well this work on a home audio system but I can say with my premium car audio system the bluetooth audio transmission quality is poor.

Looks like that's what I should of done. Now I onyl use the aux cable from the music gateway since it produces much better quality than playing the music via bluetooth. Anyone interested in purchasing the gateway for cheap in Canada let me know .
