Default Can Sansa Clip use a dock or bluetooth?

I want to purchase a wireless speaker for my Clip. Never used wireless and do not know what to look for. Can this be done?

Otherwise, I would like to attach it to a dock, like an Ipod dock. Can this be done?

The clip doesn't have wireless or any sort of docking connector, so strictly speaking you can't do either of those things.

You could get a stereo with a line in and plug that into the headphone jack though.

Just pick up any set of speakers with 3.5mm out. As far as bluetooth goes no it doesn't have that.

I know clip does not HAVE bluetooth but can those little bluetooth adapters be plugged in to one? Isn't that what these things are? http://www.ebay.com/itm/2014Mini-USB...item2a35a4a395

As far as I am aware, dongles like the above also require software to be installed on the device (at least, that's the situation with my computer)--I've never heard of that being possible on a Clip. (That does, though, raise the question whether it might be possible for someone to implement--such as with Rockbox. Having said that, my guess is, if it could be done, it would have been done already.)

There are separate Bluetooth transmitters that can, however, be used to add Bluetooth to audio players, attaching to the players' headphone jack. When I've considered them, however, I always reach the same question: for the Clip, why not just use an audio cable to connect up? Although, I guess in some circumstances such as across-the-room use or for gym use for some, a Bluetooth transmitter could come in handy.

A sample Bluetooth transmitter add-on:

That is for a computer. If you are going to need bluetooth you'll need some kind of adapter like the one posted above. Most wireless speaker systems I've seen have a 3.5mm jack in. I would just buy a cable for pennies rather than an adapter that won't sound as good anyway.
