miniBlink Bluetooth DAC: The ARCAM miniBlink Bluetooth DAC lets your stream audio from your Bluetooth source device to your existing home audio system. The miniBlink utilizes a high-end PCM 5102 DAC to convert music to a line-level output for connection to your home audio system.
Bluetooth A2DP w/ aptX: The ARCAM miniBlink Bluetooth DAC supports wireless audio streaming, so you can wirelessly stream stored music, music apps, and other audio content on your Bluetooth source device to your existing home audio system.
