    Streaming Sirius from phone to Boom - what do I need?

    Would something as simple as https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...P7S295J7&psc=1 connected to Line In on the Boom work?

    I'm open to other/better suggestions. Thanks!

    If your phone is from Apple ... then you could install the Shairtunes plug-in on LMS - and then your Squeezebox should appear as an AirPlay device ... and you should then be able to send to it.

    My phone is an android. It appears the Esinkin and the Logitech models are exactly the same on the exterior. Basically the same price. Both on Amazon. Any recommendations?

    If you have a Raspberry Pi you could use pCP as a Bluetooth receiver ....
