If you’re like me, you’ve got a number of iPhone accessories – rendered useless with the advent of Apple changing from the 30pin to lightning connector.
One of those is a my Logitech Pure-Fi Anywhere 2. But there’s no need to put it under the bed or use it as a fancy doorstop. You can grab a Kitsound Dock Air Wireless Converter, which turns your dock into a bluetooth-enabled music station.
Now not only is your dock now usable with your iPhone 5 it’s also usable by any bluetooth (V2+) enabled device.
It doesn’t work with all 30pin docks so it would be best to see if your dock is on the compatibility list prior to purchasing, though the number of docks supported is very generous.
To set it up was dead easy. Plug it in and pair it with your iPhone. That’s it. Just start playing your music and off you go.
My thoughts after a week using it:
- Easy to use.
- I found turning the volume on the actual dock reasonably loud and then controlling the volume from within the actual music app to be a better solution than trying to control the volume on the speaker system directly (the Pure-Fi comes with a remote, which I no-longer need with the Dock Air)
- Inability to change the default password for the Bluetooth pairing. Not a major issue since it is bluetooth, but it would be nice.
Overall, it’s a simple device that performs exactly as advertised! If the Dock Air isn’t compatiable with your speakers, there are a number of alternatives that can perform a similar task.
