Features

Overview: The Russound BTC-1X Bluetooth module lets you wirelessly stream music from a smartphone, tablet, portable media player, or other Bluetooth audio playback device, to a Russound MCA-Series Controller such as the MCA-66 or the MCA-88 (each sold separately). The BTC-1X supports the aptX codec, for enhanced quality audio streaming that's superior to standard Bluetooth audio, and can wirelessly connect to a Bluetooth device up to 50' away.

  • Note: The BTC-1X is an audio streaming device only, Bluetooth hands-free phone calls not supported.

Power&Connections: The Russound BTC-1X connects to an MCA-Series controller using standard CAT-5 cable (not included), with a maximum cable length of up to 300'. This also allows the Bluetooth module to be powered from the MCA controller via the ethernet connection, allowing for a simpler and more compact installation. A corresponding LED will light green, indicating the unit is receiving power from the controller.

Custom Naming&Passcode: The BTC-1X can easily pair to a Bluetooth playback device right out of the box, but can be programmed for your own unique system name and passkey for added protection. A Micro-B USB port lets you connect a PC to the BTC-1X, using the supplied USB cable (Mac not supported). This allows access to the programming options using the BTC-1X Configuration Software found here.

Specifications:

  • Frequency Range: 2.402-2.483GHz
  • Connection: RJ-45 (T568A Standard)
  • Power: Supplied by controller via CAT-5
  • Maximum Cable Length (CAT-5): 300'
  • Maximum Bluetooth Range: 50'
  • Dimensions: W = 2.756", H = 0.940", Depth = 2.20"
  • Weight: 3.1 oz.
