    Hi everyone,

    I have a Harman Kardon Bluetooth receiver, which allows me to send audio (from my phone and tablet) to my amp and speakers.

    I just wondered if it's possible to buy a Bluetooth adaptor for my Blaupunkt 40/148 television, which would allow me to send the TV audio to the speakers as well.

    Any advice would be much-appreciated!

    Yes, you should be able to do that.
    In common with most TV's these days I doubt your TV has analogue audio out via RCA phono but probably has SPDIF coax or optical output and headphone out.
    Have a look on Amazon for a Bluetooth transmitter, most of them have stereo phono inputs but have a look for one with optical or coax inputs, that way you're covered for every possible input. You want to get one with low latency, that way you won't get any problems with audio sync delays.
    Read the reviews of any you're considering.

    Thanks for your help guys. However, my Harmen Kardon doesn't have a screen on it, to be able to show any incoming bluetooth signals. I have to configure it via my iPhone. Will these transmitters automatically connect with the Harman Kardon? Apologies for failing the IQ test on this one!

    The Hama one you press a button on the unit to send out the Bluetooth signal. If the Harmon Kardon is in pairing mode, then it will just connect
