    Upgrade Your Bluetooth and Hear the Difference

    Time to catch up if you’ve fallen behind on high-fidelity Bluetooth. This Bluetooth music receiver uses aptX, an advanced codec that compresses and decompresses data to speed up transmission and produce higher-fidelity audio playback. You will hear the difference. Another enhancement you'll love is the extended Bluetooth range. The antenna is precision-tuned to allow transmission between your playback device and the wireless adapter from up to 100 feet away.

    Don’t worry that an advanced Bluetooth music receiver will outshine older devices. The B1 is backwards-compatible with all Bluetooth versions and will function seamlessly with all your devices to deliver the same high-quality sound.

    Worthy Sound with Data to Analog Conversion

    More than a receiver, the Bluetooth adapter contains a digital audio converter (AKM AK4396 DAC) that achieves brilliance using three-stage power regulation and 24-bit upsampled playback, which improves the signal-to-noise ratio by internally upsampling all bit depths to 24 bits. You can listen to music using this internal DAC by plugging into your audio system’s RCA analog outputs. 

    You can also connect the optical output into another DAC, which may be part of your existing system, thus using your wireless receiver as a bridge from your device to your audio system’s data to analog converter or preamplifier.

    Small Enough to be Portable

    The compact B1 is small enough to take with you and improve the tunes at any gathering. The robust aluminum casing is protected from scratches by the microfiber bag included with your purchase.

    Bring your playlists anywhere you go and plug into the on-site audio system to hear hot tracks in seconds. Any system with audio inputs will connect with your Bluetooth music receiver for beautiful, analog sound. You control the tracks from your device, anywhere you find yourself within range.

    Quality American Manufacturing

    The B1 wireless adapter is manufactured by Austin-based Audioengine, a Texas company that prides itself on detail-oriented elegance and operational simplicity. This home audio accessory is built from quality components including top-level connectors and a precision antenna that delivers the extended transmission range. The B1 pairs well with Audioengine’s other components, such as powered desktop speakers, for an effortless streaming experience and exceptional sound.

    What You Get in the Box

    The B1 wireless receiver comes with an RCA audio cable (3 ft.), power adaptor (with detachable cable), microfiber carry bag and setup guide. Power cables are not necessary because the B1 is USB-powered with a low-noise power supply on a separate circuit board to manage heat and noise. 

    Your sound experience will be excellent right out of the box. Still, the DAC will improve its performance throughout the first 40 to 50 hours of break-in time to meet your exacting standards.
