We’re always bigging up the magic of Wi-Fi, but it’s not the only way of streaming music. Good old Bluetooth waves can also carry your tunes using a natty standard called A2DP, and these speakers are the first we’ve seen that can receive them.

The Anycom BIWAS-20 is an ideal chum for A2DP-equipped phones, which are multiplying by the day thanks to enthusiastic companies such as Samsung and LG and beauties like the Moto V3x.

It won’t exactly blow holes in your eardrums, but does promise stereo sound via two speakers and a 20 watt amplifier. You should be able to connect your phone from up to 100 feet away indoors, or 250 feet if you’re having an outdoor picnic.

Other gadgets aren’t necessarily excluded from the A2DP party. If you add Anycom’s Bluetooth audio adapter to your MP3 player or TV you’ll be able to get them talking on the same wavelength.

Similarly, plugging the company’s USB-250 Bluetooth adaptor into your laptop or PC will let you stream thousands of internet radio stations to another room. Oh, the possibilities.
