This adapter adds Bluetooth capability to your Russound AirGo powered outdoor speaker. Both the included Bluetooth receiver and power adapter fit inside your AirGo's weather-resistant compartment. Connect the AirGo's internal power cable to the adapter, pop the Bluetooth receiver into the power adapter's USB port, and close up the compartment. Then you can pair your Bluetooth-compatible smartphone, tablet, or computer to the receiver for instant wireless music streaming.
Average Customer Review(s):
Cheaply made it gets the job done.
This came with my Russound portable speaker, and really expands the possibilities. Rather than being tethered to a cable, or reliant upon streaming through an Airport Express (which it seems previous models utilized), any device with Bluetooth can now be used to stream music. Setup was relatively easy, although the name that appeared in my list of available devices (H163) was rather cryptic.
Pros: Straightforward setup
Cons: Bluetooth device name a little difficult to recognize and remember
Can't beat free. compact easy set up
Pros: Great value
Works great. Fits nicely in the back of the speaker.
This Bluetooth adapter hooks right up, and fits snugly in the back of the speaker
Pros: Works Nice, Compact.
Pros: A lot
Works perfectly with AirGo.
Easy to install & worked as promised. No complaints
Pros: Easy to install in speaker. Worked well with my I Phone.
easy to hook up....worked perfectly'
Though bluetooth is a great addition to the Russ Around Go, the material it is made from is not that sturdy. I have returned this product for another in see if I just received a dud. If however, I receive the next one with the same problems I plan to return this product with that of the speaker. There also was a buzz sound that came from the speaker when using the product with the Russ Around Outdoor speaker, but I will see if the next one I receive does the same thing. I will change my review if all is well with new bluetooth.
Pros: Bluetooth capability
Cons: Poor quality and just fell apart in my hands. Buzzing in the speaker.
Bluetooth Adapter for AirGo: The Russound BT-AGO1 is an add-on Bluetooth module for Russound's AirGo Outdoor Sound Station (543AIRGO1, sold separately). The BT-AG01 consists of a USB Bluetooth adapter and AC power supply. The USB Bluetooth adapter plugs into the included AC power supply's USB (type-A) port. The two devices are then connected to the Russound AirGo's auxiliary input cable and AC outlet cable.
Note: The male two-prong AC plug of the included AC adapter must be removed in order to expose the female two-prong AC port so you can connect the AirGo system's AC outlet cable.
Wireless Audio Streaming: The Russound BT-AGO1 allows you to wirelessly stream stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone, tablet, or laptop to Russound's AirGo Outdoor Sound Station. Music navigation and song/artist information is still done through your Bluetooth-enabled device.

Good reviews and it seems like it will work on a portable radio I have that has a USB charging port and AUX input, but no BT. [ karfreek Dec 22, 2016 ]

Used it for an older Bluetooth and wifi stereo. [ Craig Dec 12, 2015 ]
I dont think so. I bought the russoind air go speaker and installed an apple airport express in it not the bluetooth adapter. I do know that with itunes and a computer you can stream to multiple airport express units. I typically stream to 5 in my house at a time. The russound units sound quality is excellent [ michael Apr 14, 2014 ]
I had actually meant to ask my question regarding the speaker itself, but you're answers make it clear that I can only use 1 speaker via the BT connection. Thanks for the responses! [ Paul Apr 14, 2014 ]
No, you can't. It only works with one speaker at a time. I had the same idea, but found out after I bought the adapters that it doesn't work for two speakers at the same time/source. [ KENNETH Apr 14, 2014 ]
I'm sure you can stream 2 at once if you are using a Mac and using the airport express in the AirGo. You have to do that through iTunes and not using Airplay on an iPhone. Whether you can do this using bluetooth, I am not certain. [ DOUGLAS J Apr 14, 2014 ]
Paul, This turns your Russound speaker into a Bluetooth speaker. You can only stream to one Bluetooth speaker at a time. [ RALPH Apr 14, 2014 ]
