Default Bluetooth/Wi Fi for Vintage Amp.

What would be the best way to go for playing wireless Hi-Resolution music through a vintage amplifier? I've seen Bluetooth receivers on ebay but I have no idea if they are of Hi-Resolution quality or if there are any problems with them, in fact, I know nothing about this subject and I need some advice from people who have been down this road.

Bluetooth 4.0 or above are high quality sound ime.
I bought one of these $32, internal battery so it's easily portable, 3.5mm & optical out, sounds good on my system.

I can't see any RCA plugs? Without them, it's useless for vintage amps? Thanks for the info on Bluetooth 4.0 and above, that is handy to know.

Bluetooth/Wi Fi for Vintage Amp.
There are plenty of options out there in BT4.x.

You could go the diy option and get a little module from eBay etc and wire it directly into the amp. Some can be reprogrammed to display whatever name you want in your BT device list.. some can't. They usually cost anything from $10-50.

Or plug ins can be had from around $20-40 for a generic brand.

Logitech do one for $40, Sennheiser for $140 and Bose have a wifi offering for about $270.

I tend to buy the little modules and feed them a dedicated supply. Then it is just a matter of squeezing them into the build. This is to minimise the amount of 'boxes' I have in the system.

Can I ask what the vintage amp is?

Bluetooth isn't a hi resolution protocol. A2DP profile is almost as good as MP3 at 192 kHz, but that's all it has.

It's a Sansui AU-11000 and my other one is a Sansui AU-D907F Extra. What I need is the highest resolution wireless receiver I can get with RCA output plugs.

I paid AU$188 (free shipping) from Clef Hi-Fi. It's a well regarded streamer from the reviews as it seems to make the top ten as well as a Sound and Image award.
