Overview: Simply plug in the Cambridge Audio BT100 Bluetooth Audio
Receiver into the Cambridge Audio DacMagic Plus' rear-panel USB (type-A) port
for wireless music streaming from many of today's most popular Bluetooth
supporting devices; such as iPod touch, iPhone, iPad, Android smartphone,
Android tablet, and Mac or Windows PC. The BT100 even supports the high-quality
Bluetooth aptX CODEC, so you can stream audiophile quality music from your
Bluetooth-enabled source device to the DacMagic Plus.
DacMagic Plus Compatible: The Cambridge Audio BT100 Bluetooth Audio
Receiver is specifically designed for Cambridge Audio's DacMagic Plus (779DACMPLB/S,
sold separately). The BT100 can be plugged directly into the DacMagic Plus'
rear-panel USB (type-A) port, or you can use the included USB dock mount to
connect the BT100 to the DacMagic Plus.
Bluetooth A2DP: The Cambridge Audio BT100 supports Bluetooth A2DP
wireless audio streaming. This means you can wirelessly stream music from your
Bluetooth enabled iPhone, smartphone, iPad, tablet, or computer to your
connected DacMagic Plus and home audio system.
Note: The Cambridge Audio BT100 does not support Bluetooth AVRCP
(Audio/Video Remote Control Profile) or HFP (Hands Free Profile).
aptX Audio Enhancement: Bluetooth aptX, which is featured on a growing
number of Android mobile devices as well as MacBooks and Apple desktop
computers, allows audio to be broadcast wirelessly in significantly higher
quality than over standard Bluetooth. You'll instantly notice more extensive
dynamic range, deeper bass, and crystal-clear top end. Standard Bluetooth has an
extremely variable performance and its weaknesses are very apparent to music
lovers. Common complaints include a reduction in high-end clarity, muddiness or
dullness in the midrange, and its reduced signal-to-noise ratio can cause
listener fatigue. Conversely, Bluetooth aptX has a fixed performance standard to
guarantee a consistently high-quality wireless music transfer. With almost
CD-quality reproduction to offer, you'll instantly experience significantly
greater dynamics and infinitely more detail from your favorite music.
Pairing: Your Bluetooth enabled smartphone, tablet, laptop,
or computer must be paired with the BT100, initially.
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology,
some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or
may not support all features when used with the Cambridge Audio BT100 and
Compatible Music Sources: The range of music available from today's
smartphones, laptops, and computers is almost endless. In addition to music
stored on your smartphone, tablet or computer; online music services like
Spotify, Last FM,
of course other internet radio sources can be wirelessly transmitted to the
BT100, your DacMagic Plus, and home entertainment system.
