Our take on the MATCH MEC BT-UP7BMW by Crutchfield's Buck Pomerantz
Add Bluetooth streaming to the mix
Do you use MATCH's UP 7BMW amp/processor in your BMW? If so, this MATCH MEC BT-UP7BMW Extension Card allows you to wirelessly stream music directly into your sound system from your compatible Bluetooth device. Your smartphone or tablet becomes a high-quality music player that streams its digital content directly into your system with no degradation of the signal by another digital-to-analog conversion.
This extension card uses Qualcomm® aptX™ Bluetooth codec and the A2DP profile, which means you'll get near-CD quality sound for your musical entertainment. In addition, the extension card features an optical digital output, so you can send high-quality signals to another device with no degrading analog conversion necessary.
Mounts inside the amp
To install this MATCH extension card, you'll need to remove the side panel of your amp and replace it with a new side panel that comes with the module. MATCH includes step-by-step instructions and an installation tool to help you mount the extension card inside your MATCH UP 7BMW.
Note: This Bluetooth extension card only works for streaming music and does not support hands-free calling.
