There is a much cheaper way of doing this that also has other advantages. If you pick up a Plantronics Pulsar 260 BT headset with dongle. There is also an audio cable included that will allow you to plug into the audio input jack on your stereo (you may need an adapter depending on the type of input jack your stereo has).
You will also have the option of streaming music thru the dongle to the included headset while at the gym, etc. If your car stereo has an aux input jack you can plug the audio cable into it as well to stream music from your phone.
Here is a link to the Plantronics Pulsar 260, and the Sony 2 way Bluetooth device the OP was talking about.

Regarding the pairing: Yes, once paired a device ( phone / tablet / etc ) will certainly remember the connection, but in the case of the sony adapter, it doesn't like to be switched back and forth between products. So if I go from my Xoom, then switch to WP7, it forces me to put the receiver back in discovery mode. Kind of like it "only remembers the last device connected to it" but forgets your 2nd device until you resync it...." it is a knock on the product, I'd have to test the plantronics version but it seems like a solid if not better option. I updated the writeup with a link to this discussion and the plantronics. thanks for the input.
In the end, it's great to be able to pump music and sound from video through the home stereo..
