OK, I fully understand now. I thought you were talking about a generic neck/or clip HA streamer as an alternative to the Resound Phone Clip. But in reading it closer, you’re just talking about using the (included) Resound Phone Clip as the HA streamer. It sounds like your TV is an older unit that doesn’t have Bluetooth built-in so you’re needing to get a Bluetooth interface/functionality for your TV which is the Taotronics for $50.
To me, the generic Taotronics $50 Bluetooth interface is not what you want to compare against the Resound TV streamer, because if you had had a TV with built-in Bluetooth then you wouldn’t even need the Taotronics in the first place. I wouldn’t even call the Taotronics a “streamer”. To me, a “streamer” is something that interfaces directly with your HAs, like the Phone Clip or the iPhone or the Resound TV Streamer. The Taotronics is not in that class because it doesn’t interface with your HA.
The way I see it, what you should be really asking is why do you need the TV streamer if you already have a Phone Clip streamer? OK, the TV streamer doesn’t require a Bluetooth interface to your TV, but the Phone Clip does (hence comes the Taotronics into the picture, since your TV doesn’t have Bluetooth).
I think the real question is whether the Phone Clip broadcasts to your HAs in stereo or in mono? Because it’s designed as a “phone” interface, there’s good chance they design it to be mono to save $. If that’s the case, then the TV streamer wins because it has stereo. But if the Phone Clip broadcasts in stereo to your HAs (and read stereo from whatever Bluetooth device), then I don’t see why you need to buy the TV Streamer. Just buy the Taotronics to use for your TV or laptop or any other non-Bluetooth device you have.
The interface protocol between the TV streamer to your HAs is probably the same as the interface protocol between the Phone Clip to your HAs, as long as they both broadcast in stereo to your HAs. So there shouldn’t be any quality difference between them in my opinion.
