I assume you mean for rear speakers on a surround sound system? http://lmgtfy.com/?q=rear+wireless+speaker+adapter

I appreciate the answer (and the lmgtfy response,) but not what I'm looking for actually..

I use a cheap set of Logitech surround sound speakers and I usually constantly have music going. However I'd like to be able to move about my apartment while still keeping a connection to the speakers. I know they make Bluetooth speakers, of course, but I was curious if there's a way to keep using my current set that otherwise works just fine.

Thanks guys!

Connection to what? Your phone? Your mp3 player? You keep leaving information out, so it's extremely hard to answer your question. Maybe this is why you can't find the right device. :\

@meikat: My laptop. But what I'm asking should work with anything a speaker can plug into... but I guess said product doesn't exist.

@chipgreen: Ah, haven't seen these yet, but at those prices I might as well buy new speakers. Thanks for the link though. :)

We need a lot more info. Do you want to play voice, music, or what? Low level, medium level, loud? Is fidelity important or not? Does the receiver(s) connected to the speakers need to run on batteries, or AC? Can both speakers run off the same "receiver" or do they need to be in separate locations? Are your present "speakers" just passive (unpowered) speakers, or are they already amplified (which means they'd already have some power source (batteries or AC). Maybe if you actually define what you want, someone can find an answer for you.

Wow, this question turned out to be a lot more complicated than I expected.

I just want to know if there's a way that my desktop speakers (simple Logitech speakers, they're plugged in to a power source) and can be plugged in to some sort of adapter to make them Bluetooth compatible. Ideally, a product where you plug speakers into it and it allows them to play music via Bluetooth. This way music can still be playing while I'm elsewhere in my apartment. Does a product exist that does this?

Sorry for not being clear... I didn't know there was more info needed. It's sounding like no simple product like this exists.

OK, if you want to use speakers that already have an internal amplifier, then the "receiver" part of the system does not need to include a power amp.

If both speakers will be in the same place, then you want a single stereo system, and not two separate monaural systems.

If you want bluetooth, that rules out a lot of other options. However, be aware that bluetooth has a relatively limited range, it may NOT work "elsewhere in the apartment" if you intend to be very far away, or if there's significant shielding (metal structural elements) or interference.

There are tons of devices that meet the above description. Google "stereo bluetooth adapter" and start your search. Read the descriptions carefully. You need a transmitter which plugs into the laptop, MP3 player, etc. And you also need a receiver, which will provide audio for your powered speakers. Some products will be sold in pairs; others will just be a separate transmitter or receiver.

This looks like it should work: http://www.amazon.com/TaoTronics-Bluetooth-Dongle-Receiver-mobile/dp/B004Y2KRTY

Pretty affordable considering what you're trying to do.
