I believe HP also had a dac that could work wireless by means of a propriatary wifi dongle.
And the reviews on it were quite o.k.
Such a solution seems a no-brainer interesting option that manufacturers should easily be able to monetize.
No dependency on any 3rd party protocols or other devices. Just a 'wireless cable' using your own dongle and technology.
Actual plug and play.
I've no idea why such solutions don't seem available these days.
(perhaps you can find them on the digital silk route?)
You would think, but I believe it is because very few people have home systems anymore, or even use PC/Personal computers, or even laptops, unless they must for work. Most people are sing cell phones for everything. that's why when you try t have a conversation in email, and you are trying to be specific, like we are here, you get back:
That's because they are using their thumbs to type and having any sort of detailed conversation would take them days to type out on a F-ing phone. But, it is what it is, but IT is not for me. Using your thumbs to communicate on a 4" screen is idiotic.
About the best we can do now is buy Amps that have Wireless capability and ditch Bluetooth altogether. If Bluetooth gets to the point it is as god as WiFi, then I'm in. I don't have a problem with new technology, as long as it is "as good" as old technology. Bluetooth aptX HD and Adaptive seem to be going in the right direction. Although from what I have read. Adaptive 'chooses the best" quality fr you. And FU on that. We all now how that works. Creative does have a Bluetooth aptX HD dongle that actually has lights on it so you can tell when you are transmitting aptx/HD or when, for example, SBC is being used. But this "automatic" stuff is just generic talk, to me anyway.
