Default bluetooth universal receiver?

I can't find any small bluetooth speakers online that appeal to me. I already have some regular small speakers that plug into my computer's small audio input. Is there such a thing as a bluetooth receiver that I can plug my small speaker into instead, so I can use it with my computer?

I don't know anything about bluetooth but have you considered USB speakers?

I have a set put out by Yamaha that I bought many eons ago when I had a conflict between my sound card and some other piece of hardware--can't remember what now--and I've used them ever since and have not had a sound card put in any new system I've had built since--just plug into a usb port and away you go...'-}}

When I bought them, they were pretty unusual and if I'm remembering correctly, they were fairly pricey. I just did a quick browser search for 'usb speakers' (I did use the single quotes) and lots of hits popped up and they fairly inexpensive--as in $20 or less...

I already have speakers I can plug in. I am trying to see if I can use them in a wireless way.

Maybe something like this would work.

Here's the US amazon.com link for the Belkin F8Z492 Bluetooth Music Receiver--not sure it's the exact dup of the UK amazon site...
