Does the new iMac (late 2009) have the A2DP Technology ?
I would like to pair it with the Belkin Bluetooth Music Receiver.
I know Snow Leopard supports this protocol but is it necessary to have a special chip and is the iMac equipped with it ?

    The hardware should support it as well. Many folks are using there Macs with stereo systems and headphones that support A2DP.

    The biggest complaint is the sound quality. Some folks have overcome the poor quality by editing the BluetoothAudioAgent.plist (~/Library/Preferences/ either with a .plist editor or with Terminal.

    You need to raise the Apple BitPool minimum from the default of 2 to 40 or 50. To do this with Terminal open a session and cut and paste;
    defaults write "Apple Bitpool Min (editable)" 50
