Since we are giving away a 3Play Bluetooth Receiver this upcoming month, we thought we’d share some of the reviews it’s been getting on Amazon. We think our 3Play is awesome, but if you need more convincing check out some reviews by Amazon users:
“Tiny Box for Multiple Devices + Bluetooth Play”
Debbie Lee Wesselmann: “This Grace Digital 3Play Jukebox is the answer for anyone who wants to connect/disconnect multiple devices to a single set of non-Bluetooth speakers. Or for someone who doesn’t have Bluetooth in the car and who wants to play music from up to three devices, one at a time. The 3Play is quick, and it’s easy.
The 3Play is a small box — 2.25″ x 1.75″ x .75″ — that receives the Bluetooth signal from your smartphone, computer, or tablet and plays it through your car or home speakers. Unlike other Bluetooth receivers, the Grace Digital remembers up to three different devices so that all you have to do is play from one, and it goes through the receiver and into the speakers. If you start to play music through a different pre-connected device, it pauses the first and then activates the second without your having to go through a menu.
Pairing is as easy as any Bluetooth device. It comes with an audio cable for use with a car stereo or other output devices that allows for aux jack input. You can also connect the receiver to speakers using a 3.5 mm to Toslink cable (not included) or an RCA adapter (also not included.) Because it runs on battery power (USB to microUSB cable, via computer or wall charger), it’s extremely portable. I leave mine plugged in, however, because that way I don’t forget to charge it.
I’ve used this successfully with two iPhones (4 and 5) and a 3rd generation iPad. The sound is great, although, obviously, it depends on the quality of the output speakers. This would be a great device for a roommate situation with only one set of speakers or for a family with multiple devices.”
“I bought this device for the convenience of not having a physical connection between my receiver and iPhone”
Jeff O.: “…I was blown away by the incredible quality of the sound when using the toslink optical connection. If your receiver has an optical input, I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to use this cable versus the supplied RCA or any RCA connection. My wife, who is hardly an audiophile, immediately noticed the difference when I switched from RCA to toslink digital. So don’t overlook this feature and assume it is only an ordinary headphone jack.”
“Unique triple-pairing Bluetooth receiver”
Margaret Picky: “The Grace Digital 3-Play Jukebox is a Bluetooth receiver that will quickly and easily pair with up to three devices at a time as 3playJambadoo, no code needed.
Switching between audio sources is ridiculously simple and almost instantaneous: hitting play on a paired device automatically makes it the new audio source. This makes the 3-Play very useful for one person using different audio sources for a single audio system and it is also lots of fun for sharing and audio systems by three different teenager with smartphones.
The Bluetooth 4.0 audio quality is excellent when using aptX codec-compatible devices. The lithium-ion battery lasts well over eight hours and recharges in less than three hours using the included USB-to-micro cable. The audio out port will accept any standard or optical cable with a 3.5 mm jack.
I was surprised at how small and easy to use the 3-Play Jukebox is. It is also so much more convenient than having to pair each device every time when switching audio sources.”
