Default Playing wireless music through my home stereo

Is there something I can buy that will let me play music from my Droid on my home stereo? Maybe some sort of bluetooth or wifi adapter with rca jacks in them.

Here is a workaround, get yourself one of those Bluetooth headphones that is basically a Bluetooth module for which you can use your own 3.5mm headphones. Pair the device with your phone, then attach a cable with from the BT module to the aux input of your stereo. this can be done with either 3.5mm to rca or using adapters. This way the music that the BT module receives, is being output to the "heaphones" attached to it, which in this case, is your stereo. Voila.......

here is a quick google search result.... there are many other products to do this btw......

I use the Blackberry Bluetooth Stereo Gateway. I works great with my HTC Magic. The phone must support A2DP. It also works with my iPod touch 2.

This cable will do the trick. It's only 6" so you might want to get another extension.

When I'm not using it in my car, I just use my Jabra Cruiser Bluetooth Speakerphone to connect to my stereo. No RCA jacks needed, just tune the stereo to a pre-selected frequency, make sure the Cruiser is connected to my cellphone and play pretty much anything I want from my phone to the stereo.

Jabra CRUISER - Bluetooth® Wireless Headset for Mobile Phones

There are other brands out there that do the same thing - Motorola sells several units and Jabra has a few other models as well. I got mine off eBay for around 40 bucks. I'm sure there are probably less expensive alternatives out there but I like the features on the Jabra (supports two phones, hands-free calling, etc.) so it was worth it to me.

What he means is, have a computer or laptop hooked up to your stereo system. DOwnload GMote to your phone and you can control all the media from there. So you arent technically streaming music from the phone nto your stereo, but controling the stereo wirelessly. I would also recommend Itunes plus "Remote for Itunes".

Yes, the best one will be a jabra brand stereo bluetooth which looks like a dog tag. Works great.
