Universal Wireless Receiver: The Focal Universal Wireless Receiver enables
wireless connection of your Bluetooth-enabled devices (such as your Apple
iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, Blackberry, or laptop/computer) to your home entertainment
system. Now, you will be able to listen to music files and music apps from your
Bluetooth-enables device on your home stereo system (your home system must have
a free stereo RCA audio input).
Bluetooth A2DP Technology: The Focal Universal Wireless Receiver features
Bluetooth A2DP technology, which allows you to wirelessly stream audio from your
Bluetooth-enabled device to your home entertainment system. You will continue to
control your music and view song/artist information from your Bluetooth-enabled
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 Focal Universal Wireless
Apt-X Compatible: Apt-X audio coding, 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. The apt-X codec achieves a 4:1 compression ratio, allowing for
near-CD quality listening (16-bit/44.1kHz). You'll instantly notice more
extensive dynamic range, deeper bass, and crystal-clear top end.
Stereo RCA Outputs: The Focal Universal Wireless Receiver is fitted
with a set of male stereo RCA connectors and includes a stereo RCA extension
cable to plug into your home receiver or powered speakers.
LED Indicators: The Focal Universal Wireless Receiver features a
single LED to indicate operation status. If the LED is not lit, the receiver is
off (plug the included AC power supply into a power outlet). If the LED is
blinking, the receiver is powered on with no source associated to it (you can
now associate a new device). If the LED is continuously blinking, the receiver
is powered on and one device is already associated to it.
Power Requirements: The Focal Universal Wireless Receiver operates off
of standard household current using the included external AC power supply.
