NO MORE MINI JACKS…

The BT-500 streams audio from your mobile device over Bluetooth and delivers a fully balanced, +22dBu stereo output.

Employing last generation audio specific Bluetooth technology, the best Codecs your devices can support and a state of the Art, Burr Brown based analog signal path, it solves the already classic, irritating problem of connecting your iOS or Android device to your Studio setup.

To this day this has been solved using mini jack to XLRs adaptor cables, but the limitations of mobile devices’ analog audio paths have become clearly apparent.

Listening to references on the iTunes Store, recordings sent by email, Spotify, You Tube, you name it. You do it every day, all the time. Nevertheless integration has been non convenient to say the least, until now.

SOUND QUALITY OVER BLUETOOTH? AAC & APTX…

The BT-500 automatically recognizes your device´s best codec option and uses it for streaming.

Apple´s iTunes Store and You Tube use AAC* as native so streaming from an iPhone or iPad will result in a lossless transmission, much better than an analog wired connection!! Vast majority of Android devices have already adopted the APTX** codec, which is nearly lossless and the

standard that wireless high quality headsets and sound bars are adopting. For a complete list of devices currently supporting APTX please visit:

In case your device can´t support neither AAC nor APTX, the BT-500 will stream audio using the classic SBC codec.

BURR BROWN PEDIGREE´S IN THE ANALOG PATH…

The BT-500 substitutes your mobile device´s analog circuitry with a state of the art, fully differential Burr Brown balanced output stage which delivers a full 0dBfs = +22dBu output able to drive a load of 600 ohms. This allows direct level comparisons while mastering or mixing with Apple´s iTunes Store or mobile stored reference mixes.
