Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This product does everything it was advertised to accomplish. Shipping was very fast.

Pros: Easy to set up.

Cons: A very minor reduction in sound quality.

Works seamlessly, easy to install, great price

Barry from Hurley, NY on 4/15/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Product was easy to install and works seamlessly with my Bose 3-2-1 stereo. I used it to stream radio content from my Apple iPad to my Bose for expanded content and better sound of that content. Before making my purchase I consulted with a Crutchfield specialist and the advise given was totally accurate (thank you, Paul). The actual device is very small and can sit right on top of the Bose without issue.

Pros: It works! Little if any distortion so delivers great sound. Easy to install. Very small so almost unnoticeable. Inexpensive.

Cons: None.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to use, good sound, but not a whole-house solution and a little buggy

Pros: Very simple setup, cool blue light

Cons: Doesn't easily handoff between devices. Short range, not a good solution for multi-room systems. Hangs and requires occasional power cycling

Perfect solution to connecting old equipment with new technology

William from Beaverton, OR on 4/6/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works GREAT with my old but favorite Harmon Kardon HK3400 receiver and new ipod touch (6th generation). The two units connected via Bluetooth seamlessly and the music quality from my old but favorite large Sony speakers is awesome. Initially tried connecting the HK BTA 10 into the "phono" audio jacks (there are no "aux" jacks on my receiver) but music quality was poor. Then tried connecting to the "CD" audio jacks on receiver and that worked perfectly.

Pros: Easy install, seamless functioning and excellent quality of music

Cons: May need to try a few audio jacks on receiver to find the one that works best and delivers awesome music quality

Frank A. from Montgomery, AL on 2/22/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Received in mail and straight to my Yamaha S501 amp I went to hook up. The hook up is easy just decide where you want to hook it LINE 1 etc. I picked the CD. Will be honest in telling you at first I thought it was not going to work. The reason is I was looking for it under Wi-Fi not BLUETOOTH( LOL-embarrassing myself) you want to listen to streaming music this is a must! It sounds great and hooks up fast...if u know where to look! Bah Ha Ha

Pros: Hooks up easy and sound is great! Just what you need to use your AMP etc. to stream music.

Cons: I wish they could have made the wires a little longer for placing purposes.

Two Defective Units

Jim from Bay Springs, MS on 2/22/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Unlike everything else I have bought from Crutchfield, this bluetooth adapter from Harmon/Kardon proved to be unsatisfactory twice. The first one I received paired fairly well but the only way to get it to play without stopping and starting over and over was to move my streaming device within three feet of the adapter. Crutchfield quickly replaced the defective unit with another one just like it. However, this one would not pair with my phone or my laptop both of which are by Apple. Now I'm looking for another brand to try. If you try Harmon/Kardon I hope you have better luck than I did.

Pros: None

Cons: One would not pair with iphone or Macbook Pro and the other would only work properly when the streaming device was within three feet. High price, too.

Great product and simple install

SP from Bowling Green, OH on 2/8/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

so this little gizmo does exactly what it says it'll do and that is to stream audio to your audio system. harmon/kardon are to be congratulated on this device. paired easily enough to an older phone and ipad mini which, in turn, is hooked up to an older Cambridge desktop stereo system. tunes come thru sounding great, given what I'm working with, and so far not a single drop. while I'm not in any hurry to drop my cd collection I do appreciated the flexibility this device adds to the workplace soundscape. and should I even be in a generous mood I may allow a coworker to pair with this gizmo. but that's not likely.

Louis from Destin, FL on 2/3/2018

I was excited to get it, to turn my HK receiver Bluetooth.........however, I was slightly disappointed....the BTA10 works relatively fine as advertised, if you plan on keeping your phone/iPad/tablet close to it....my max distance is just about 10 ft.....also, the volume is very low, so I have to crank receiver to -17dB to get it at about good listening level.

Pros: - Works as advertised

Cons: - Low Volume - Limited distance

D from Selah, WA on 1/16/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have an older but high end stereo system. Until now my listening was limited to CDs and LPs. The Harman Kardon BTA 10 has expanded my listening library to anything on the internet. The fidelity is good and volume is adequate if the phone volume is turned up to the max which allows control through the preamplifier. The set up took 2 minutes and it performs as advertised. It is certainly a welcome addition to what my kids call an antique!

Pros: Very easy set up. Good fidelity.

Cons: None at this point.

Easy setup and great audio

Use this Bluetooth adapter to be able to listen to my music list on my Yamaha 1020 receiver. Installation was a snap and my phone was able to recognize the Bluetooth device and hook it up to my phone without a problem.

Drew from Pullman, WA on 1/15/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have two very nice sounding older stereo receivers, but they do not have Bluetooth. This device solves that problem. It is very easy to hook up, and I do not notice any loss of sound quality while sending a signal from my iphone. To my ears it sounds better than a hardwire analog connection from my phone to the receiver.

Pros: Saves you from having to get a new receiver with Bluetooth.

Cons: It is so small you will need to take care not to misplace it if you move it around.

It is much smaller than I expected, but the size has nothing to do the performance. I connected Harman Kardon BTA 10 to one of audio inputs of Yamaha RX-770 stereo receiver via RAC plugs. With this setup, I can listen to the music on my iPhone through large speakers connected to RX-770. I also connect my MacBook to listen Pandora music. It is working well as expected - very easy to connect to iPhone and MacBook via bluetooth, and the audio quality is fine.

Pros: inexpensive, high quality sound, easy to setup, very small size

FANTASTIC bluetooth receiver

Bryan from Elgin, TX on 12/30/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This little BT receiver is fantastic! I wish I wasn't a cheap person sometimes. I would have saved money by buying this one first. I saw this one a while back when looking for BT receivers to hook up to my system. I didn't want to spend the extra money for it so I bought a cheap one. It was the rechargeable receiver. That lasted just a few weeks and the battery wouldn't charge. I bought a second one. That one wouldn't keep connected. Well here I am 100+ in to BT receivers. I can be on the back porch and I have no reception issues. The range is much better than the battery powered receivers. I'm no audio junkie, but the sound is just as clear as my record player and just as clear as when I had my tablet hook directly to my receiver. It came with all the cables needed and set up was super quick and easy. My setup is pictured below. Marantz 2238B receiver, Marantz 6110 record player, a pair of Marantz Imperial 7 speakers and a pair of Technics SB CR77. All are now pushed by a AudioSource AMP310VS. Absolutely LOVE this bluetooth receiver.

Pros: AC powered not DC Small Clear sound Easy set up Comes with everything you need to hook it up

Cons: NONE!

Works exactly the way I wanted!

The Harman Kardon BTA 10 works every time and it was a piece of cake to install, just two connections and sync your phone. I bought the unit for the cycle studio at the gym, everyone is happy. The sound is no different streaming through the BTA as it is hardwire connected. Couldn't be happier. Oh yea, I ordered and had the device the very next day with free shipping. Crutchfield still dispenses the "WOW FACTOR" on a regular basis...

The unit works well, now that I know how to use it correctly. There were no instructions or information as to how the unit should be plugged in or operates. For example, it shuts off after not being used for 10 minutes. When I called to ask for help, I mentioned to the rep on the phone that the lack of FAQs or helpful info was irritating - his response was "yeah, I agree". I have called 2 times to get help on troubleshooting - (I am not someone who knows about stereo stuff anyway) and both times I was helped satisfactorily. The service was good, perhaps they can ask the manufacturer to provide more detail for the "stereo knowledge impaired", like me!

James from Goose Creek, SC on 12/10/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have a couple of older stereo receivers that I've had for a few years that I haven't been using since I upgraded to a new home theatre receiver for tv and movies and they still work great. The problem with them is they don't have newer technology like Bluetooth etc. I wished I could use them in my game room to play music off my iPhone or iPad, but without Bluetooth I couldn't do it. I didn't know about the Bluetooth adapters that we're on the market until I did a search and found out they were available. I ordered the BTA-10 from Crutchfield and it works great and opens up a new way to use my older stereo receivers.

Pros: I can now play my digital music from my iPhone and iPad on my old stereo receiver.

Cons: None so far.

Great little device

Jay from North Reading, MA on 9/26/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this device to be able to connect my phone to an old home theater receiver. It's very small but works very well. Bluetooth range is great and it comes with the headphone to RCA cable needed. My only complaint is that I wanted to buy another one to use for a set of speakers not connected to the receiver but they would both have the same bluetooth device name so it'd be tough to tell them apart. I wish you could change the device name for this purpose. Other than that, it's a great product.

Pros: -small -includes headphone to RCA cable -strong bluetooth signal (at least in my home)

Cons: -no way to rename the bluetooth device name

IT WORKS GREAT, IF I AM ABOUT 10 TO 15 FEET AWAY...IF I GET 20 FEET OR FURTHER IT STARTS CUTTING OUT.

VERY EASY TO SET UP AND USE, ALSO IT CONNECTED WITH NO PROBLEM, JUST NEED MORE RANGE. I AM RETURNING IT AND GOT A NEW ONE, ONE WITH AN ANTENNA ON IT..AND THIS UNIT WORKS FANTASTIC. MY WIFE LOVES IT.

first the good news, simple installation, works perfectly, audio quality very good. The bad news, I don't think the range is very good 30 feet is not a long way but within 30 feet it works beautifully, I didn't realize Bluetooth will only support one connection at a time...in other words my wife and I can't access the device at the same time from different iPhones.

Horrendous Sound Quality

Mike from Temperance, MI on 8/20/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sound quality is horrendous. I've used and own plenty of Bluetooth devices and this is extremely poor audio quality. Used the included RCA jack on my Onkyo, which cranks out the power to my 15" cerwin vegas and it sounded horrible. To make sure, I then played a cd on the same stereo and it registered a 7.4 on the Richter scale. My only thought is to try a different input otherwise I'm very, very, yes very disappointed.

Pros: It connected my Onkyo receiver with my Bluetooth iPhone.

Cons: The sound quality downright sucked.

Just bought this product to replace my HomeSpot Bluetooth receiver because it crackles if I increase volume on Bluetooth (via iPhone or iPad) and it crackles if there is much bass. Well the Harman has the exact same problem. Do not waste your money. Junk product.

Pros: None. No better than much cheaper brands. Sound quality the same at 1/3 the price.

Great Bluetooth Connection

John from Milton, DE on 6/26/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I needed a wireless Bluetooth receiver that I could use with my older home theatre system. I wanted one that could remain plugged in but would automatically turn on when I wanted to use it and would shut down automatically, after use. The Harmon Kardon BTA 10 filled the bill perfectly. It flashes a blue light when I seek a connection on my IPhone and remains lit when in use. After use, it searches for a new connection and, when not finding it, automatically shuts down and goes black. It exactly filled my need and even has a greater connection range than I thought it would. I highly recommend this product for anyone needing a wireless Bluetooth connector. Also. kudos to the Crutchfield customer representative who understood what I was asking for and went out of his way to call the mfgr. to find out that it operated as I wanted.

Pros: Operates independently Shuts down automatically Great range No need to turn off and on

Cons: None found

Purchased this product so I don't have to keep connecting my iPhone or iPad directly to my stereo system directly every time I want to listen to music. I am a big Harman Kardon fan and use their speakers for my stereo. Easy installation and setup gets it a 5.0 rating but sound quality got worse as I turned up the volume. Disconnected and reconnected multiple devices with same issue. Disconnected and directly connected iPhone and iPad and got great sounding results.

Inexpensive way to stream music from iPhone or iPad/Pod to stereo

Tom from Denton, TX on 4/5/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Could not have been simpler to use. In fact, there were not even any printed instructions to speak of. Just pictures (drawings) to follow. Plug in the RCA left and right to the available stereo receiver inputs (CD, AUX, etc.) plug the AC adapter into a power source and it comes on. Open the Bluetooth setting on the iPhone and let the phone "discover" the HK BTA 10. This took about 20 seconds or so. Play music! The other great thing is, the unit is so tiny that it was easily hidden behind the receiver in our entertainment rack so the overall look is very clean. Just be sure and turn the volume up on the phone all the way and then adjust the stereo volume to taste. That way you can turn the volume down lower using the phone. Sound quality is very good to my non-audiophile ears. Seems to be equal to the wired-solution I was using before.

Pros: Small unit, easily hidden. Easy set up. Sound quality is very good. Inexpensive. Works with older components.

I have been looking for something like this for a long time. This little device has allowed me to finally put that old garage stereo to use. After receiving my package, I was up and going in less than 5 minutes. I think it took me longer to unpackage it, than it did to hook it up and start listening. It seems to have good range and sound quality. However, I just use it in my garage, with my phone 10 feet away on the work bench. I don't need to take my phone and wonder 70 feet away, while still hearing the tunes. I'm totally happy with my purchase, and would highly recommend it.

This is a name brand piece of audio-gear for an entry level price point. I have no complaints, as it is a Bluetooth receiver and there are inherent limitations. This Bluetooth interface device doesn't claim any of of the 'enhancements' that it's colleagues put forth...I appreciate that! I know that if I am streaming music from a iPad, iPhone, or Android device I am not setting myself up for high fidelity audio. Having said that, MY EARS ARE NOT THAT DISCERNING, the audio quality is perfect for the price, and even more suited to my ears. -Wes

Pros: Expected Bluetooth audio performance Reasonable price

Cons: Unit is pretty light, I ended up using zip-ties and adhesive lanyard spots to keep the receiver from moving around. A super cheap fix.

Works great! Simple and convenient way to play apps and even satellite TV through my home stereo wirelessly.

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: Wish it used fiber optic or Coaxial cable for best sound quality and Surround sound capability

Best improvement to your stereo!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great item! Easy to hook up. This is so great for bringing your 10+ year old home stereo up to modern standards. Such an inexpensive but quality Bluetooth improvement! I heard no loss in sound quality over previous wired hook up. Excellent all around!

Pros: Easy hook up. Great sound quality.

Cons: Range is true to quote. About 30 feet.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This little gizmo was set up and working in less than a minute. The signal is not quite as robust as claimed - any intervening object, including a passing person, can interrupt the transmission between the sending device and the bluetooth receiver, so it's best to set your music streaming source near the receiver if you have a few people moving around in the space. Apart from that, it works very well.

Cons:

Works like a charm. Simply plug it into your receiver using an unused input (CD2, etc), plug the power cord in, pair with your source device and let the magic begin. I use it with Macintosh MAC 6700 receiver, which now is Bluetooth enabled! Something Mac should have done, but did not. Highly recommend.

Pros: Easy, unobtrusive, effective,.

Cons: None

Great adaptation to my old stereo equipment!

Dan from Standish, MI on 12/2/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have the old-fashioned, high powered receivers/stereo systems in both my house and garage. I have around 1,400 songs downloaded on my phone from my CD collection which I now stream to this BTA 10 through my stereo systems - it works great, now I don't have to use the wired hookups. It is very small and compact as well - barely noticeable. I connected it to the "phono" jack the first time and it didn't sound very good, but after moving it to a different jack on the receiver, it was fine. I would recommend this for anyone that wants to stream music from their phone through their "old" stereo systems!

Pros: wireless streaming, very small unit - barely noticeable, inexpensive

Cons: none

Love it

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have been looking for a product that could connect a bluetooth device to my home stereo through RCA jacks for some time. The folks at Crutchfield and Harmon Kardon did not let me down...as always. It took only a few minutes to set up and connect to my phone and now I can listen to my favorite music or stream music onto my favorite stereo. It literally could not have been any easier. I could even control the stereo from out on the back deck.

Pros: Small and unobtrusive, super simple to connect to analog system and to mate up to wireless devices.

Cons: Haven't found any.

Awesome!

Alex from Stuart, FL on 8/31/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Spoke with Bryce a Crutchfield advisor. He provided excellent !! suggestions and guidance on the correct Bluetooth product for my 2 Yamaha receivers. The I purchased 2 HK BTA 10 to play my new iPod which has Bluetooth capabilities. It was a simple straightforward installation but I will provide one tip to a potential buyer, make sure the volume is set on max on your iPod,MP3 or smartphone so that your music flows through the receivers. Happy with my purchase!

Pros: IPod w/Bluetooth does not require a wire connection to play music. Ability to move around the room or home with control of your music library.

Cons: Don't have any at this time. Works as expected.

Works just not great

chris from Pearland, TX on 8/11/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Work ok. I am disappointed that the range is not better. I have it mounted in plain sight. I wanted to use it with my i-phone but if I carry my phone around the house with me the signal drops in and out. If I set my phone down close to it it works fine.

Pros: When connected it works as expected

Cons: need to mount it in clear sight-mounting inside a cabinet makes it tough to connect signal drops in and out when using with my iPhone.

Ben B from Los Angeles, CA on 7/9/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I originally ordered the Yamaha YBA-11, which, when I received it, proved to be incompatible with my analog receiver. I rang up Crutchfield support, and they recommended the HK BTA 10. And I'm happy I took their recommendation. The price was right, the set-up was simple, and the sound is excellent. It does exactly what I want it to do, and I'm listening to Leonard Bernstein conduct Beethoven's 9th right now. Ahhh.....

Pros: Analog connections, easy set-up, great sound

Cons: Unpredictable range. Sometimes the connection remains strong when I'm streaming the device from across the house, through multiple walls, and sometimes it sputters out when I'm 15 feet away.

Larry from columbus, OH on 1/21/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This took about 3 minutes to connect to my 20 year old Sony receiver. Plugged it into the "video" inputs and powered it up. Rebooted my iPhone, then started streaming music from several sources--Pandora, Spotify, RadioTunes--as well as from songs stored on the phone. Also connected it to an older iPod loaded with my entire music collection and started streaming with it as well. BTA 10 only recognizes one source at a time, but no big deal since you can only listen to one source at a time. I will probably purchase a second unit to attach to my home theater system.

Pros: Great way to instantly upgrade good equipment that lacks a Bluetooth connection.

Cons: None.

The product was easy to set up. I found that the device works best when there is a line of sight between phone and BTA 10. Even someone walking in between the two caused the signal to drop out. Very frustrating.

Cons: Spotty connectivity

Bruce J from Virginia on 12/17/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Simple to install, just works. The only drawback I see is that there isn't some way to adjust the level of the signal going into the output device. Since my stereo receiver doesn't have independent gain adjustment for each source, this means a significant variation in sound level between, say, the FM signal, the Bluetooth device, or a CD player.

Pros:

This is a nice, unobtrusive, and inconspicuous device for getting sound to a reciever. The sound is fine considering the use of Bluetooth. Installation and setup was easy... however I still can't figure out how to link other Bluetooth enabled devices to it. The specs state up to 8 devices, the directions do not expand on this. The HK website doesn't have more detailed instructions. I will have to ask customer support.

Pros: Easy setup and great sound considering compressed wireless transmission

Cons: Difficulty setting up additional devices

23 questions already asked

Plug the Audio Out cable from the HK BTA10 into the Aux In of your stero or TV. Turn on the Bluetooth mode and connect your devices - you should be good to go. When not needed just turn the Bluetooth off [ VICTOR R  Apr 09, 2018 ]
BSmart, I'm not quite sure that I understand your intent with this device, however, I can tell you how I use the HK BTA-10. The device allows my stereo receiver to be controlled (volume,track,playlist,etc) with my smart phone. It connects to my receiver via a red & white RCA type jack into the AUX inputs on the back of the receiver. I would imagine that it could be connected to any of the other unused functions as well.There is also a separate cable and adapter for power. None of the connections for this device connect to the headphone jack in my application. In respect to your speaker question, I don't think that type of application is the intent of this device. Further, your smart-TV most likely is already Bluetooth enabled, allowing you to listen via your favorite headphones with a wireless connection. Hopefully my comments have given you some insight into this product. Good Luck, JD [ JEFF  Apr 08, 2018 ]

I use two of these on two different receivers. I'm not aware that these work plugged into a headphone jack. The headphone jack is an output jack, the BTA 10 needs to be plugged into a input jack like the input for a CD player into a receiver. [ Ken  Apr 07, 2018 ]

Enter an answer You should use any device with 3ml auxiliary output (cable included) or RCA to connect the harman kardon bta 10 and use it as a bluetooh with a phone or tablet to communicate and listen to its speakers.

It is necessary to connect this unit to a receiver or amplifier. It serves as a signal source to allow streaming. From your smartphone, but by itself provides no amplification. [ Clockdoc  Mar 15, 2018 ]
I'm thinking it will but you need an audio input and a source for AC power like a 15 amp inverter. [ Geza  Mar 01, 2018 ]
IfIfyou have a din input in your radio, you can use it. You also need a power supply for it. Don't know if it is 12 volts or not. [ Tem  Mar 01, 2018 ]
I am not familiar with BSR speakers. I used my BTA on my amp to stream music into the amp and out the speakers. [ JAMES  Feb 09, 2018 ]
I have purchased two of these units and have been well served by them. I use them in each location to take a blue tooth audio signal into (separate) stereo receivers. The signal sources in respective locations are a Windows desktop computer (upstairs) and a Macbook Pro laptop downstairs. The unit stands alone but has a power cord with a small transformer, receives AC and operates on DC from the transformer. Cables are provided with the unit. The audio out to the receivers is a ministereo jack at the unit and RCA left and right for the receiver end, probably six feet, perhaps a bit less. In each location, I decided in favor of the HK BTA-10 and against higher fidelity speakers for each computer, reasoning that I had already invested in good speaker quality for each receiver. Upstairs, all computer generated audio is heard through my bookshelf speakers; downstairs, likewise, all audio from the laptop goes through our Polk Audio floor-standing speakers. Do pay attention to the proximity of the device to the blue tooth source (closer is better), and do make sure your source, if a computer, is capable of generating a bluetooth signal. My Macbook came with bluetooth installed, but with the older PC I had to obtain a USB plug in, but both of the HK units work well, and deliver stereo input to the receiver. [ Joe  Feb 09, 2018 ]

It works great hooked up to my regular amplifier. I use my phone to blue tooth sirius to my amplifier. It only receives! [ Tem  Dec 26, 2017 ]
Sorry, I do not know the answer to this question [ JAMES  Dec 11, 2017 ]
Yes [ Anth.  Dec 11, 2017 ]
Not sure what you are specifically asking but think of the harmon kardon as a device which makes a wired system wireless. In other words, you can use a bluetooth device such as a smart phone and play music over a wired device such as an non-Bluetooth amplifier by using the amps RCA jacks. [ Michael  Dec 11, 2017 ]
Not speakers. H/K BTA-10 might help your old Onkyo with Bluetooth devices. [ Juan  Oct 09, 2017 ]
Not sure of your exact set up but the harmon kardon will work through your old onkyo amp as long as you have rca inputs on the back of it. I then assume this onkyo amp is hooked up to speakers throughout your house which I assumed are connected by wires to the onkyo since you said it was old. This would then allow you to play music via Bluetooth from your phone or like device through the onkyo into the speakers. Hope this answers your question - thanks. [ Michael  Oct 09, 2017 ]
I bought this one because it was a good match for my receiver (older Sony). I am not familiar with those that only cost $20 [ JAMES  Sep 15, 2017 ]
I don't know if I can answer your question, but I have two of these devices, one for upstairs and one for downstairs, respectively, stereo receivers. Downstairs we connect to a Yamaha receiver I've had for years, getting true stereo for streamed music, radio and video from the (Apple laptop) computer. Upstairs, I equipped a a Windows PC desktop with a $25 blue tooth adapter as that computer did not otherwise send a bluetooth signal, again using the HK blue tooth to take a stereo signal into a Panasonic receiver. Both the HK units have worked well, and as long as you are not pushing them to the end of their range of distance from the blue tooth signal source (not more than thirty feet), the HK units do just fine. I don't know if less expensive units from other makers were available when I purchased (about six months apart), but the units have worked without a hitch and the sound quality is very good to excellent. [ Joe  Sep 11, 2017 ]

I have no idea if this will work. I plugged it into my Stereo System in my home and stream music from my phone throughout my home. I thought the echo already did that though... [ Pete  Jul 18, 2017 ]
My HK BTA receives wireless signals from a Bluetooth device and sends the signals out via cable to an "audio in" jack of my audio system, which sends them out the "audio out" jack through wires to speakers. HK BTA does not appear capable of changing a signal from a projector "audio out" jack into a wireless transmission to the Echo, which is what your application requires. Maybe Crutchfield has something for that. [ mary  Jul 17, 2017 ]
That scenario sounds like it would be opposite use of this product, it is designed to give you a Bluetooth input for non equipped stereos, you need a Bluetooth transmitter, this is a receiver. [ ROCCO`S AUTO  Jul 17, 2017 ]
I am not certain how you are setting this up but you will need an audio in jack for the BTA 10 to connect and act as the Bluetooth for the non-Bluetooth unit. So if the echo doesn't have the audio in connection the BTA 10 is not going to work. [ Michael  Jul 17, 2017 ]

Theresa, I have not used this B/T device with headphones. I can tell you it works well with our Ipad streaming music well over 20 feet. I am very pleased with the performance. [ JAMES  Feb 07, 2017 ]
I have had good success with the BTA 10, which I use to play music and internet streaming radio from my ipad into my bedroom receiver/speakers. The distance is probably just about 20 feet from ipad to the BTA 10, possibly a couple of feet less, and the volume level is compatible, although perhaps just a tad less than, what I get with the same receiver volume set when I play the receiver's radio or a cd player. I also have lots of "headroom" to increase the receiver's volume setting, but for my purposes, so far, haven't yet needed to do that. Only quirk I've noticed is that when I back up the ipad, I have to re-pair the BTA 10 with the ipad, and on two occasions, I've had to unplug and replug in the BTA to enable the pairing to occur. Other than that quirk, I've been well satisfied with the unit, and just ordered a second one for my downstairs receiver/speakers, so I can play music and stream radio and online video to the downstairs speakers from a dedicated mac laptop, allowing me to dispense with a wire connection from the laptop to the auxiliary input on the receiver. I hope that is helpful to your decision making. [ Joe  Feb 06, 2017 ]
It depends on the head phones, I would buy a wireless expander to help in the house. [ BLAINE  Feb 06, 2017 ]
I have not had that problem with this device. Note that it can only connect with one device at a time. And the range is not as strong as some of my other devices. But it works well within 20 feet or so. [ Scott  Jan 16, 2017 ]
Yes I believe it will, but you can always go into your phone settings and tell it to forget the BTA 10. That should keep it from trying to connect until you tell it to. [ Dan  Jan 16, 2017 ]
Hello, I guess by HQ you mean High Quality, The answer is no because of the nature of the bluetooth technology, a wifi device will give you a higher quality sound rather than bluetooth. The device work quite well though I have not complained about it. [ Jaime  Jan 11, 2017 ]
This is a good product for older devices that does not have blue tooth. I use it for streaming music from my smart phone to this device that hook directly to a receiver. [ Tony  Jan 10, 2017 ]
Well im going to presume the HQ means high quality if so yes the streaming quality is exceptional however you will get best results if the streaming device is in the same room no more than about 10 feet.

So i don't forsee any problems with connecting the tv source to your headphones via this bluetooth adapter. i believe the hk bta 10 also comes with the correct wires for a connection between the actually device and your tv but you may want to make sure in case you need to order a different set of cables.

This device uses Bluetooth. You will be able to send audio from your Macbook to to the A/V receiver with this using the built in Bluetooth on the computer. If you prefer to add AirPlay, then your best bet may be to get an AppleTV. This would allow you to quickly and easily add AirPlay to your existing system. You can find out more about the AppleTV here: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_472APPLTV/Apple-TV.html [ Jeff  Aug 31, 2015 ]  Staff
this works well without AirPlay. It has it's own Bluetooth address and works well with both Apple and Android devices. I play it thru my six input on Rotel equipment and sound is great! [ LAWRENCE  Aug 30, 2015 ]

I am not aware of a booster associated with this product. I have connectivity to at least 30 feet. The product requires a separate power source and will stay on when the receiver is off. [ ROBERT W.  Nov 06, 2014 ]
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: This won't work to send out a signal to wireless speakers. This is meant to turn an older receiver (with RCA inputs) in to a bluetooth capable device so you can stream audio to it from your tablet or smart phone. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy  Jul 07, 2014 ]  Staff
