Bluetooth transmitter to connect amp to wireless headphones

Hi
After a long break, I've started listening to my old vinyl collection again. I've invested in some decent wireless headphones, but I'm finding it difficult to choose a bluetooth transmitter. There appears to be a bewildering selection on Amazon and I can't see an obvious "big name" product. Any recommendations? Thanks.

A lot will depend on what codecs your headphones support - whatever they support needs to be supported at the transmit end as well

As larkone said depends on codecs. Avantree have a decent reputation. A little more expensive than some. I bought this made in China one last year and it’s been steady enough. Bought because of APTX HD and LOW LATENCY. Used it maybe 3 times per week and still going strong. When it comes to the cheaper Chinese stuff I believe it’s pot luck.

Funnily enough, I ordered that unit last night!
