Product Research


Add-On Bluetooth Receiver: The Helios AS-BTR lets you add Bluetooth wireless audio streaming to your existing home entertainment system. Your system simply needs a free auxiliary or audio input. Now you'll be able to wirelessly stream audio from your Bluetooth-enabled source device to your home audio system.

Wireless Audio Streaming: The Helios AS-BTR features Bluetooth A2DP technology, which allows you to wirelessly stream audio from your Bluetooth-enabled device to your home entertainment system (up to 32.8'). You'll be able to stream stored music, music apps, and other audio content on your Bluetooth-enabled device to your home stereo system. Compatible Bluetooth-enabled devices include many smartphones, tablets, computers, and laptops. You will continue to control your music and view song/artist/album information from your Bluetooth-enabled source device.

Note: Only one Bluetooth source device can be paired and connected at a time to the Helios AS-BTR. See User Manual for setup instructions.

Analog Audio Output: The Helios AS-BTR add-on Bluetooth receiver is outfitted with a single stereo minijack (3.5mm) output which allows it to connect to your home AV receiver, integrated amp, or powered speaker's auxiliary or audio input. A 19" stereo minijack cable is included. A stereo minijack to RCA cable (sold separately) will be required if your AV receiver or integrated amplifier features a stereo RCA input.

AC Power Adapter: The Helios AS-BTR add-on Bluetooth receiver operates off of standard household current using the supplied external AC power adapter with 19" cable.

Will it pair up with chromecast in a browser on a PC?

It is a very good and affordable Bluetooth transmitter. As long as you got a way of getting a signal threw the leads it should do fine
[ ROCKY A  Sep 22, 2020 ]
I have an older Onkyo CD receiver (CR-325) which is wired to Bose speakers with a sub woofer and has a small headphone jack on the front: will the Metra Helios AS- BTR work with this system to receive a blue tooth signal from a tablet?

This Bluetooth unit comes with an adaptor that goes into the rear of your unit in the Dock In jacks of analog (Red & White) inputs and outputs from Metra Helios unit with a 3.5MM headphone jack. I feel this should work.
[ Spencer  May 21, 2020 ]
It will work with any receiver with aux inputs. I use video 3 on mine because the input jacks are on the front. You need a cable with 3.5 mm male on one end and RCA males on the other end to connect between the adapter and your receiver.
[ paul  May 21, 2020 ]
Just contact Crutchfield and ask one of their techs. They will walk you through all of your questions. That's what I did and they were fantastic
[ John  May 21, 2020 ]
Not through the headphone jack on the front, which is for output. However, you probably have an "Aux" input port on the back which would work. That's the way mine is setup.
[ PAUL G  May 21, 2020 ]
Will this play to Bluetooth speakers?

I am not familiar with Bluetooth speakers or with using the Metra Helios unit as a transmitter. Sorry
[ Spencer  May 21, 2020 ]
Yes, if you have problems just call Crutchfield and they will walk you through it till it works.
