About this product


Product overview

• Wirelessly stream music through Bluetooth to your home stereo system
• Uses Bluetooth (available on almost every mobile device) to send music
• Connect to any speaker or stereo system using a 3.5mm auxiliary cable or optical connection, making it compatible with a number of different devices
• Has a wireless range of up to 10 metres, so you can stream your music from a good distance away
• AAC and aptX codecs provide you with CD quality sound from any mobile device, whether that is Apple, Android or Windows

What does this Bluetooth adapter do?
The Optoma NuForce BTR100 Bluetooth Adapter allows you to play music wirelessly on non-Bluetooth speakers. This could be your Hi-Fi or home stereo system. Wirelessly stream your music to your existing sound setup at a distance of up to 10 metres, without having to pay extra for an upgraded setup that has Bluetooth built-in. The adapter can remember up to eight devices, so you won’t have to pair your smart device to the adapter after the initial setup.

What is the sound quality like?
Using the latest version of Bluetooth and both aptX and AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) codecs, no matter whatever operating system your phone is using (Apple, Android or Windows) you’ll be able to get CD quality sound. You will benefit from a more dynamic range, deeper bass and crystal-clear top end compared to music sent through the standard Bluetooth codec (SBC).

What connections does it have?
This adapter is designed with two connections so you can find the right connection for your setup. Both a 3.5mm auxiliary port and a 3.5mm to twin phono (RCA) cable are included, giving you flexibility. Additionally an optical connection port is found on the adapter, to connect to an optical/TOSLINK input of your speaker, although a cable is not included.

I have connected this via the jack lead etc. to 2 devices. Hi-Fi amp input sensitivity of 150mv into 1 Megohm and a Sony unit with an aux input sensitivity of 800mv. The output seems insufficient to drive either of these fully. Why?

Asked by: JImbo
This would typically attributed to the line level of the signal, it may be the inputs you are using are unsuitable or perhaps the unit is faulty as such I would suggest contacting our Customer Care Team who can advise on the options available to you if the item remains within our standard 12 month warranty period. If your item is now outside the warranty period please do still contact the Customer Care Team as they may have alternative options available to you. Please contact customer care by telephone on 0333 400 9500 or email customercare@maplin.co.uk It will help to speed up the returns process if you have your receipt details / proof of purchase and postal address available at the time of contact.

I want to use this to link up a static computer in one part of the house to an amplifier in another room. There are walls in between although the doorways are open. What sort of range can I expect from this - is it as good as the penetration of our wi-fi?

Asked by: djbadger
This will work up to 30m but walls will reduce range.
