From the two you mentioned, going off the website the Saturn Pro seems more versatile being able to act as both transmitter and receiver. Pretty decent option if you ever need a receiver or want to pair two of them together to act as both. Also has the AVCRP profile and AAC codec which Priva doesn't. Better battery life too. The Priva has the option of connecting 2 headphones to it at the same time. Handy if you have a mate or family member frequently around watching with you. User replaceable battery I think. Both will play CD quality audio. The Hi Fi is just there for marketing. Just by going off that and assuming the performance is similar, it really comes down to whether you prefer the option of adding a second pair of headphones or the option of using it as a receiver.  I'd personally go the Saturn Pro as that gives the option of using it as a receiver if I want to say play songs from my phone through external speakers without connecting the phone (if I'm understanding it correctly). The option of connecting a second pair of headphones requires you to purchase another pair of bluetooth headphones (or get a mate to being theirs)! Though if you already have a good receiver then the Priva is the way to go.

Thanks noob2, that was really handy to read your take on it as I know even less about Bluetooth transmitters. I agree the Saturn Pro does seem more versatile. I don't actually own a stereo speaker anymore that I could use the receiver end in (I replaced it with a Bluetooth soundbar a little while back) so that receiver option is not so critical. I also don't own any receiver at the moment. That's good to know re CD / HiFi quality - that confused me. I was leaning towards the Priva for simplicity sake, and also the dual headphone and you can run it powered (plugged in). I read somewhere in quiet bits of movies or when paused the Saturn Pro can turn off sometimes and you have to reconnect etc. Having said that if they are much of a muchness, the versatility of the Saturn Pro might be better. Something for me to think about. Cheers mate.

Well if the Saturn Pro does tend to disconnect during quiet scenes and that can't be fixed then I'd definitely go the Priva. Would hate to have to constantly get up to reconnect the device and then rewind and catch what was said. Also there could be the risk that it won't reconnect and play properly unless you shut everything off. Something I've had trouble with in the past with cheaper bluetooth headphones. Where do you plan on purchasing it from? DIdn't see a local shop with either rmodel.

Good advice, thanks. Me too, that doesn't sound like the best scenario - especially if it turns off when TV / Movie paused for a little while. I think given those points and it seems to be made for TV I might stick with the Priva. I might do a little more hunting for a Bluetooth 4 aptX low latency transmitter before buying the Priva.

I think they must be relatively newish as I can't find many online shops selling them and there are very few reviews compared to the Saturn Pro. You can buy the Priva direct from Avantree or there is one supplier selling on eBay and on Amazon. I'll confirm what I end up doing. Thanks noob2

I'm not sure if it has been mentioned here, but in case anyone is wondering, the Logitech UE 9000's do not work over AptX. They're actually rendered unusable (no sound) when paired with an AptX device. If you're interested, I posted a very detailed response on a thread at the Logitech support forums here.

 

It's too bad because I think they sound absolutely brilliant, both in active and passive modes. The build quality is superb and while design is subjective, I think they look amazing.

 

I've only used them for a few moments, but I might keep the UE 9000's to use as wired cans. Although I have a pair of UE 6000's which are the AAA battery, wired equivalent of the 9000's. So the deciding factor will be whether it's worth keeping the 9000's for the rechargeable battery.

 

I've gone with the Sony MDR-1RBTMK2 as a replacement BT set for now. I'll decide the fate of the UE 9000's when the Sony's arrive sometime next week.
