    I use Ipeng to turn my Iphone into the SB Player, the phone has Bluetooth. I've got a small Bose Mini Soundlink which I can carry round and as long as the phone stays within wifi network range I have access to all of my LMS ripped music and / or Apps. If out of range at end of Garden etc then I just switch to internet radio, Spotify or MP3's.

    Hello Everybody - Blue Tooth is the problem here! He has a Blue Tooth Speaker. They are fine to feed music to from ones iPhone in the room one is currently in, but that is where it ends unless one is going to carry the BT Speaker AND iPhone around together to every room because RANGE is the issue with Blue Tooth. WiFi solves this problem as does Squeezebox. He owns a Baby, just buy the battery for it and carry it around, Issue Solved! If he just HAS to use the BT Speaker, then buy the BT Transmitter off of Amazon and plug it into his Duet Receiver and play his music from the Receiver with the BT Transmitter plugged into it so the BT Speaker has a strong signal.
