Hartman Kardon BTA 10 add bluetooth

Written by: Anthony P from Diamond, OH on February 2, 2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Harman Bluetooth I purchased works great with my Sony receiver I just turn on the receiver and pair it up with my smart phone and you have music it's that easy and was simple to hook up

Pros: Simple hook up and easy to use

Cons: None

Works perfectly

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This took about 3 minutes to connect to my 20 year old Sony receiver. Plugged it into the "video" inputs and powered it up. Rebooted my iPhone, then started streaming music from several sources--Pandora, Spotify, RadioTunes--as well as from songs stored on the phone. Also connected it to an older iPod loaded with my entire music collection and started streaming with it as well. BTA 10 only recognizes one source at a time, but no big deal since you can only listen to one source at a time. I will probably purchase a second unit to attach to my home theater system.

Pros: Great way to instantly upgrade good equipment that lacks a Bluetooth connection.

Cons: None.

Super product

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

What a great way to allow you to stream whatever you like to your Sonos system

Pros: Simple setup, great range, solid design

Cons: Bluetooth limitations allows only one to one connection so you can't switch to multiple device sources without disconnecting previous device.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The product was easy to set up. I found that the device works best when there is a line of sight between phone and BTA 10. Even someone walking in between the two caused the signal to drop out. Very frustrating.

Pros: Easy to set up and works OK if you are close to the device

Cons: Spotty connectivity

Great product

Does what they say it does

Written by: Bruce J from Virginia on December 17, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Simple to install, just works. The only drawback I see is that there isn't some way to adjust the level of the signal going into the output device. Since my stereo receiver doesn't have independent gain adjustment for each source, this means a significant variation in sound level between, say, the FM signal, the Bluetooth device, or a CD player.

Pros:

Cons:

Just What We Needed

Written by: Tracy from Ellisville,il on December 11, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Just what we needed after purchasing iPod Touch 6Th Gen. Had an Onkyo device to play iPod classic through our older Onkyo receiver,but that device, because it was 30 pin would not allow playing the touch. Super range and clarity. Highly recommend.

Pros: Easy set-up. Works as expected. Great clarity.

Cons: Yet to find any

Written by: Voot Din from Ellicottville, NY on January 27, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Loving it. Its range is about 30 feet as advertised. We have a loft/family room and kitchen. Main system is in the loft and additional speakers in kitchen. We used the RCA cables that came with it and plugged them into the DAT input in the back of our old SONY receiver and now we are using that sound system again. Sounds awesome! Very pleased with it!

Pros: Makes old stereo receiver into a wireless system that I can now use with my iPod touch.

Cons: none

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nice product, didn't bother to read the manual, worked fine with iPhone right away.

Pros: Works out of the box as advertised, no problems. Music quality appropriate for bluetooth standard.

Cons: However, the signal from my iPhone gets crappy if more ~30 ft away (I've had other bluetooth devices with better connectivity).

great but...

Written by: Anonymous from Bayonne, nj on November 23, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a nice, unobtrusive, and inconspicuous device for getting sound to a reciever. The sound is fine considering the use of Bluetooth. Installation and setup was easy... however I still can't figure out how to link other Bluetooth enabled devices to it. The specs state up to 8 devices, the directions do not expand on this. The HK website doesn't have more detailed instructions. I will have to ask customer support.

Pros: Easy setup and great sound considering compressed wireless transmission

Cons: Difficulty setting up additional devices

Compatible Bluetooth-enabled devices include Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablets, Blackberry, Windows PC, Mac computers, and more. You will continue to control your music and view song/artist information from your Bluetooth-enabled device.

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

I was considering a new receiver to replace a great 20 year old Sony, but this lets me add Bluetooth and add new streaming audio sources from my phone. [ Larry  Jan 15, 2016 ]

Peyton said it was a good one. Reasonably priced. Near idiot proof/ [ Barry  Dec 18, 2015 ]

4 questions already asked

i use this to connect my bluetooth phone music to my audio system which is goes through the analog source of my audio system. So i don't forsee any problems with connecting the tv source to your headphones via this bluetooth adapter. i believe the hk bta 10 also comes with the correct wires for a connection between the actually device and your tv but you may want to make sure in case you need to order a different set of cables. [ micah  Dec 19, 2015 ]
This device uses Bluetooth. You will be able to send audio from your Macbook to to the A/V receiver with this using the built in Bluetooth on the computer. If you prefer to add AirPlay, then your best bet may be to get an AppleTV. This would allow you to quickly and easily add AirPlay to your existing system. You can find out more about the AppleTV here: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_472APPLTV/Apple-TV.html [ Jeff  Aug 31, 2015 ]  Staff
this works well without AirPlay. It has it's own Bluetooth address and works well with both Apple and Android devices. I play it thru my six input on Rotel equipment and sound is great! [ LAWRENCE  Aug 30, 2015 ]
I am not aware of a booster associated with this product. I have connectivity to at least 30 feet. The product requires a separate power source and will stay on when the receiver is off. [ ROBERT W.  Nov 06, 2014 ]
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: This won't work to send out a signal to wireless speakers. This is meant to turn an older receiver (with RCA inputs) in to a bluetooth capable device so you can stream audio to it from your tablet or smart phone. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy  Jul 07, 2014 ]  Staff
