1.) much higher audio quality 2.) uninterrupted streaming as no phone notifications 3.) you not limited by Bluetooth range

Some of these points are less so with Bluetooth 5

This product is also for linking to decent stereo equipment. I understand your family like the convenience of Bluetooth but I like high quality uninterrupted music that means I can use my device for other things at the same time (day watch YouTube on phone whilst listening to music via chromecast). Hopefully this helps?

Does anyone know how to stream from PC to chromecast audio?

It is built into Chrome. Also other apps such as VLC are Chromecast enabled.

Mostly, I just just use my phone. Pretty much everything I want to listen to can be initiated from there and it is convenient.
These were £15 when regularly on deal 5 years ago and there has only been one generation.

There are people who own decent expensive stereo equipment. They can't use it via Bluetooth as their equipment is too old. This enables them to make their equipment 'Bluetooth compatible', except the connection via this device is more stable and better quality.

Does anyone know why they would have removed the serial numbers? Seems odd and I don't recall ever seeing this before.

Yeah I guess so. As I say I had one and set it up and it sounded good - maybe it's less wife friendly than the bluetooth solution as I was out voted and it's been consigned to the drawer !

I agree plus you can do multi room sound mixing these with google homes for that house party you can next host in 2040 There are some advantages to Bluetooth too. Not linked to any streaming service etc. Just use whatever is on your phone.

Echo input is the nearest like for like but not as high quality and doesn’t support optical (it is a good device though as have mine on the landing linked to a Sonos so I can control lights etc without it saying ok all the time and waking up the house!) plus if you get a masterplug with USB you can use input of this device without losing a plug (or using one plug as is normal on a landing).

How do you add a google mini to a stereo via a 3.5mm or any other way if its not bluetooth, you cant, hence this item. you can with an echo but this is for people with google.

It does feel that way. I’ve got all smart speakers round the house but in light of ‘Sonosgate’ I’d probably go all echo dots/minis and these as can just swap them later. Having said that I do love HomePod/google home max/Sonos linked to echo for sound and ease. I think a good combo starting fresh would be a google home hub at £59 (photo function alone worth it) and chromecast audio in each room (if you have stereo system already)

I wouldn't, because then you would be using the lower quality DAC in your echo or mini to output to your equipment. With the chromcast audio, I can use a digital toslink cable and therefore utilise the far superior DAC in my stereo amp.

I didn't know you can do that but I've never looked into it. How do you connect them? Via a 3.5mm connection? Thanks!
I guess most people will choose to connect their devices via Bluetooth when they can, for convenience. Even the quality is not the same, some people do not bother. Probably this is one of the reasons this device was discontinued, was a bit niche, not many people understood the purpose of it.
Great device, but TBH I was expected the price to drop rather than stay the same or even more expensive, it seems there is still demand for these.
Edited by: "sheffield788" 29th Mar
Yes. I have amazon echo devices connected via 3.5mm ports (I thought the google mini which I have not used for some time would have the same but others here are saying that they don't). You can then use multi-room music abilities of Alexa and play the same music simultaneously on all devices. You can also connect individual Echo devices to audio systems using Bluetooth and stream your music to that particular device but I don't think bluetooth connection support multi-room music yet.
Yes, these are good ( I have six of them) but I found them to become redundant and have not used them since I got into Amazon's eco system.

The answer is in your reply! The audio chromecast can use toslink cable offering a small improvement in sound over the traditional 3.5mm! The Chromecast is a good choice of improving some 'dumb' old sound system

Know what you mean but us MD owners record, we don't tape
Such a good device, as others have said, so ahead and still ahead of it's time.

Just bought my fourth one.

Sound quality via optical is amazing, makes blu tooth sound like a cassette compared.

You can get a Foobar 2K plugin specifically for it, VLC player also can render to a CCA group, HiFiCast also integrated with it. Must be many others as well. I've posted these a few times and as mentioned above, many just do not understand them, as well as the donks saying 'well they were cheaper new'. Yep, but they are discontinued and going a a fortune on auction sites.
I've now got four, better than Sonos at a tenth of the price, coverage all over the house, optical connection, Flacs no problem....the list is endless.Not for those who want some 'smart' speaker. Google saw this and saw that they had to force people to their smart products to monetise them. So they stopped selling these.
