Do you mean adding bluetooth?
Because it's adding more to the chain, I would leave it out initially.
Get everything else sorted first...

DR 250: x 2 (melded array) with March 2012 plans.
T39's: 4 x 20" BP102 , 2 x 28" 3012lf.
WH8: x 3 with melded array.
Bunter's Audio and Lighting "like"s would be most appreciated...

Thanks Grant Bunter, yes I was referring to the fact that I still don't know whether it is possible to use a digital bluetooth receiver with the minidsp and if so, which one.

I want to have bluetooth setup as soon as possible because the minidsp will be located in a location that is not useable for a wired connection (i.e. usb)

If anyone can direct me I would truly appreciate it!

What version of Bluetooth does your Macbook support?

I know the later versions were considerably better and not having to compress the audio anywhere near as much. I would get the latest BT version (4.0?) on your receiver then at least you don't have to upgrade it should you end up getting a 4.0 transmitter.

It does have bluetooth 4.0 already built in.

Any models you would recommend specifically for use in my scenario?

Many thanks!

Decided to go with apple's airport express A1392. Awesome little device! Also avoids the problem of bluetooth compression.

It outputs digital using a combined mini TOSLINK and conventional 3.5mm port, both in one...

Thanks! :D
