My new computer has the sound chipset on the motherboard. It is a custom made computer-no user manual. no obvious 'Audio out' terminal, aside from the 3.5 mm earphone socket.

Can I use a USB Bluetooth dongle to to send sound to my home theater system? How?

Home theater has Bluetooth connecter.

You probably can but Bluetooth sound quality sucks IME. If you're using it just for music then i'd either run a cable or buy something like an airport express/apple tv if just for music.

The problem with cable is about 7-8 meters, or strait across the middle of the room!

If you can pair your phone with it and play music to the HT then you can do what you're asking with a dongle. Absolutely easy. The BT Audio out will appear in your sound output devices just like any other audio device :)


The only reason that might NOT work is if the said bluetooth on the HT system doesn't support audio streaming, and is there for a data connection (like a digital remote) BUT I highly doubt that's the case. If they put a BT reciever in they probably have added audio support. Test with a smartphone to check before buying the USB reciever.

Looks like the BT device / whatever you get needs to support these (http://www.pioneer.eu/uk/products/archive/AS-BT100/page.html)

So I would say you cant get anything. Since I dont think all BT adapters support them. Something like this supports both (http://www.parrot.net.nz/dongle.html)

Can you run a cable under the floor?
