I already 'pair my phone' with my bluetooth soundbar I have for the TV and will similarly pair it with the Google Mini that arrives this week (free gift with my new Nokia phones....).
And, I will stream music from Amazon, or use it to play the downloaded music I have in Amazon. Though I can also play my Amazon music from the FireStick through the TV/soundbar directly - but that's in the living room.
But I needed something *else* with which to play my CDs, as I used to play them on the Pure thing but it jumps all the time
Ah, OK Mel - it wasn't clear that you already took advantage of the bluetooth technology on some existing kit, so I just wanted to highlight that the CD-player had that feature, and how it might help with some access to music if you weren't aware of how that might happen. Not as good quality as your CD's will be, but certainly gives a great free option for access to other stuff sometimes.
It's a quite blurry area of interest now, this whole 'music access' stuff - so it's almost inevitable that some digression might happen when it's not clear what's currently 'known' about the blurred edges nowadays, regarding bluetooth/mp3's/ripping/streaming etc....
Difficult to judge, of course, without someone going into lots of detail initially, so I hope you don't mind the topic-digression once it was clear that you'd ticked the actual 'CD-player' box....
btw - great idea to get your old music off your Ipod - I think I used MediaMonkey when I did this with my Ipod a few years ago - http://www.mediamonkey.com/support/inde ... le/View/3/
