  • does a preamp/bluetooth device exist?

    Hi there everyone!

    I'm completely ignorant concerning this topic, so forgive me if I make any newbie mistakes

    I have a 97 Ford F-150 crewcab that I would like to get rid of the radio entirely as I only use my Android phone for music. Currently, I use one of those tape to audio jack convertors to listen to my music and it's quite a painful experience

    I have been looking around and it looks like I might need a preamp like this. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    What I'm wondering if there's something out there that would allow me to connect via bluetooth. If I have to, I'll hang an audio jack out the blank plate that will replace the stereo but I thought it would be zoomy to just get into the car and turn on the tunes without having to connect a line to the phone.

    Would there be a way to do this? If so, what parts would I need to make it happen?

    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

    bluetooth audio receiver, I bought a couple off of ebay, they work well but do need recharged, or just wire it to a USB power adapter.
