Buy this. It works.Dec 13, 2011
I researched tons of options for wireless audio transfer <$200. This not only fit the bill but was also very easy to set up and has great audio quality.
I can only comment on the use of the 3.5mm jack input. I am not a i-anything hipster.
I have done the research for you. Just buy this and you'll be happy.
(make sure you not only purchase the RECEIVER but also the ADAPTER!)

Works well.Feb 28, 2011
We own a dance studio and host a party every Friday and Saturday night. I play from my laptop and had an SB Xi-Fi Express card that I plugged straight into the mixer. My laptop is a touchscreen and very portable so I did not like being tethered to the sound system. I found out about this device and decided to try it. I figured that since it was the same brand, everything should work together. That was correct. I connected everything up and synced the wireless receiver with the Xi-Fi card. Worked like a champ first time and every time. I do not even have to re-sync them each time I set up, they connect automatically. The range is quite good -- I can get over 100 feet but in the dance studio, remember there are no walls or obstructions in that distance. There is no sound or quality drop off in that range and I can distinguish no difference in sound between the wireless receiver and direct hard wire. Now I can carry the laptop around the room during our parties and do requests, etc. My only regret is that I did not know about this thing until now. Amazon had the best price and it arrived earlier than expected. I would have preferred something cheaper, but mow I would still choose this first even if more expensive. Creative would be well advised to package this along with the Xi-Fi card, I would predict that would sell well. I do not use the remote and its features -- first of all my working distance is beyond the effective range of the remote and second, the software jukebox we use is specifically written for dance studios and does not incorporate the remote's features.
A couple of other notes about the wireless receiver, it is about the size of a deck of cards or a big bar of soap and weighs about the same. There is no external antenna. The write ups are not clear on this -- in back the connections are: 1) RCA jacks for R & L output (red & white) 2) 1/8" stereo jack output and 3) power in -- 9v DC I think and no option to insert batteries, you must use an AC cord with 9v DC transformer (included in box).
If you have an Xi-Fi card, you will be pleased with this purchase, it makes the Xi-Fi card much more functional.

Wireless FreedomSep 02, 2009
By David H.
I purchased this along with the X-FI notebook card. Wireless freedom is a luxury that I thoroughly enjoy. The ability to hear audio from my laptop on high quality speakers wirelessly makes it a much more satisfying experience. I can move to the couch without having to sit at my desk to watch a movie with great sound.

Defective productFeb 05, 2010
By David Suisse
I could not get this unit to link to my SB0830 transmitter. Suggestions from the manufacturer were also not helpful. I returned the item. I have two Creative model SB0840 receivers and they work great!
