Audioengine B1 Premium Bluetooth Music Receiver
The Audioengine B1 Bluetooth receiver allows high quality wireless transmission from your smart phone, tablet, computer or TV to your music system. Now that Bluetooth audio quality and range have been greatly improved, hundreds of devices are featuring Bluetooth and Bluetooth aptX and the list grows almost daily.
Easily stream audio from your TV, computer or music services like Spotify, Pandora, Tidal or your own collection directly from your device to your system. Bluetooth is a point-to-point connection not relying on Wi-Fi, which can bog down when Internet traffic increases and make your media skip or pause. The B1s “one button” hook-up will have you and your friends listening to your favorite music or watching your favorite show in minutes. The precision-tuned antenna allows the range on the B1 is three times that of standard units. The advanced Bluetooth carrier is aptX, the very best sounding Bluetooth, so all of your music is transmitted and preserved at the highest quality. The 24-bit DAC further enhances audio performance as it upsamples (fills in the gaps of) any audio signal it sees. For very high-end systems, the B1 even features an optical out in case you want to use another outboard DAC or an optical input on your home theater receiver. These days, every system needs a good Bluetooth solution and the B1 will fit the bill in every way. Upgrade to the new Audioengine Bluetooth standard now and breathe a new level of usability and fun into your audio system!
Audioengine B1 Music Receiver Highlights:
- High-fidelity Bluetooth with aptX
- Connects to any system via RCA or optical
- Extended range of 100 feet, through multiple walls
- Built-in 24 bit, up-sampling DAC (AKM4396)
Audioengine B1 Music Receiver Features:
- The B1 is a simple way to get great-sounding wireless music from your device out to any music system. Setup and pairing is really easy and no special software is needed. Here’s how to connect B1 to your music system and pair with your tablet, computer, or smartphone:
- Connect the included audio cables from the B1 rear panel to your music system. Connect the included power adapter to B1 and plug into an AC outlet. B1 will automatically go into pair mode. On your device, turn on Bluetooth and select “Audioengine B1” to pair and connect. Play your music. Setup is really this easy!
- The audio quality of most Bluetooth products isn't usually very inspiring and their limited range can be frustrating. The B1 solves these problems by implementing the aptX codec, which is a high-quality audio converter designed specifically for audio. The B1 also has special circuitry and a precision-tuned antenna to extend the wireless range, providing much more versatility than other Bluetooth receivers.
- Upgrade your Bluetooth and breathe new life into your audio system. You already have Bluetooth on your tablet, computer, or iDevice, so get more out of it and experience stunning audio with the Audioengine B1 Bluetooth Receiver including aptX, 24-bit upsampling DAC, and extended range.

Includes built-in AKM4396 DAC for superior 24-bit upsampled playback Aluminum case with audiophile-grade connectors Analog and optical outputs 2.0Vrms maximum output level Experience stunning audio quality with aptX coding, built-in 24-bit upsampling DAC, and extended wireless range.
- The B1 Bluetooth Receiver utilizes the AKM AK4396A DAC, widely know for it's low noise and high fidelity. B1 is essentially an upsampling 24-bit Bluetooth DAC and will pad all bit depths internally to 24-bits, thus achieving a higher signal-to-noise ratio. Due to the AK4396A's high signal-to-noise specs, the fact that digital signal is converted (upsampled) to 24-bits and the added benefit of triple redundancy power source conversion and filtering, the B1 presents impressive low noise and low distortion characteristics with a noticeable improvement over other Bluetooth devices.
- Most Bluetooth implementations have very limited range, usually within just one room. But with careful signal management circuitry and antenna tuning, we offer a superior solution that will reach more than one room with no degradation in audio quality.
High quality Bluetooth audio
- The B1 features aptX coding which is an advanced Bluetooth audio codec that provides much higher-quality sound than previous versions. The B1 is backwards-compatible with all previous Bluetooth implementations so you can wirelessly stream music from any device and still enjoy outstanding sound.
- B1 also functions as a wireless audio bridge from your device to your favorite DAC or preamp. Use the internal DAC with RCA analog outputs or connect the optical output into another DAC.
