Peachtree Audio BT1 Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Add-On Bluetooth Music Receiver: The Peachtree BT1 add-on Bluetooth music receiver enables wireless connection of your Bluetooth-enabled devices (such as your Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, Blackberry, Windows PC, Mac computer, etc.) to your home entertainment system. Now, you will be able to listen to music files and music apps from your Bluetooth-enabled devices on your home stereo system (your home system must have a free stereo minijack, stereo RCA, or optical input).
Bluetooth A2DP Technology: The Peachtree BT1 add-on Bluetooth music receiver features Bluetooth A2DP technology, which allows you to wirelessly stream audio (included stored music and music apps) from your Bluetooth-enabled device to your home entertainment system. You will continue to control your music and view song/artist information from your Bluetooth-enabled device. Up to 8 devices can be paired to the BT1 (only one device can be used at a time).
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Peachtree BT1 add-on Bluetooth music receiver .
aptX Compatible: The Peachtree BT1 add-on Bluetooth music receiver supports aptX audio coding, which is featured on a growing number of Android mobile devices as well as MacBooks and Apple desktop computers. aptX allows audio to be broadcast wirelessly in significantly higher quality than over standard Bluetooth. The aptX codec achieves a 4:1 compression ratio, allowing for near-CD quality listening (16-bit/44.1kHz). You'll instantly notice more extensive dynamic range, deeper bass, and crystal-clear top end.
Wolfson DAC: Unlike typical Bluetooth receivers, the BT1 uses a pure digital signal path and high-quality internal components such as a Wolfson DAC and a dual stage power supply to achieve the cleanest sound possible from Bluetooth.
Analog & Digital Outputs: The Peachtree BT1 is fitted with both a stereo minijack (3.5mm) analog output and a optical (toslink) digital output to connect to your home AV receiver or integrated amplifier. A stereo 3.5mm-to-RCA adapter is included for audio components with a stereo RCA input.
Flexible Placement: The BT1 Bluetooth receiver provides an advantage over having Bluetooth built into your primary audio component. Because it's an add-on device you can easily position the BT1 for optimum wireless reception. If your audio equipment is hidden away inside a cabinet behind doors you can place the BT1 out in the open for maximum wireless range.
LED Indicator: The BT1 Bluetooth receiver features a single LED to indicate operation status.
Power Requirements: The Peachtree BT1 add-on Bluetooth music receiver operates off of standard household current using the included external AC power supply or can be powered from a 5V USB port on back of your home receiver (USB-to-DC cable included).

5 questions already asked
Yes [ KYLE Apr 18, 2018 ]
It should work fine. The only input you wouldn't be able to use is a phono input. Tape inputs would also work, or use a toslink/optical cable if your amp has digital inputs. [ CHRIS Apr 16, 2018 ]
Yes- the tuner, like the CD and AUX inputs are line-level, and the EQ curve is the same. [ Eliot Apr 16, 2018 ]
My BT receiver is plugged into a separate amplifier, but I think any input would work. [ Daniel Apr 16, 2018 ]
I returned that device and didn't really find it useful for my purposes. Sorry [ STEVEN Apr 16, 2018 ]
If you have a open Input it will work [ JASON Apr 16, 2018 ]
You can use any hdmi slots [ Eduardo Apr 16, 2018 ]
This can go into any input on the receiver. Those labeled inputs are not item specific; they are labeled for your convenience. [ Michael Apr 16, 2018 ]
It doesn't work very well. I don't even use mine. I regret buying it. [ BLAKE Sep 20, 2017 ]
Yes you can, both the TosLink digital output or the 3.5 mini-plug allow you to adjust the volume directly from your device. You will however have to find a good intermediary volume setting on your pre-amp so that you have a comfortable volume range when adjusting from your device. [ Joseph Jul 12, 2017 ]
I use this with my iPad frequently and I am able to control the volume from the iPad [ Bryce Jul 03, 2017 ]
I have a Galaxy and I have full control over the music being played - I can shuffle, skip, replay songs, and I can adjust the volume being sent to the receiver/speakers. The device is merely a go-between. You cannot control the receiver.speakers with your phone. BTW,I have used this device for months without any problem. An excellent purchase and no regrets. [ Michael Jul 02, 2017 ]
I returned it so I can't be sure. I had connectivity issues. Went with audioengine Bluetooth device -- nearly 2X as expensive but well worth it for the sound quality and range of operation. [ Mel Jul 02, 2017 ]
Iphone streams to peachtree music server which in turn is connect to your amp or powered speakers & you control thru your amp remote or powered speakers ..so the answer is NO. [ RICHARD S Jul 02, 2017 ]
I use my Kindle, not an iPhone, and have no trouble adjustng the volume. [ T Jul 01, 2017 ]
Yes, you can control the volume with your phone. I generally turn my phone media volume to max and use my audio system volume control, though. [ Joseph Jul 01, 2017 ]
I'm not sure of the specifics of the martin logan soundbar, but this bluetooth device has two separate outputs: digital and analog. So long as the soundbar can receive one or both of these inputs (the images of the soundbar suggest it can), you would be able to stream from your iPhone to the soundbar. [ Bryce Apr 18, 2017 ]
Sure you can just connect the bt1 to either the digital input or the RCA. THIS WILL WORK IF YOUR SOUND BAR HAS AN AMP [ RICHARD S Apr 18, 2017 ]
This will work with anything that has a 3.5mm input jack (aka a headphone jack). I have this hooked up to a 25 year old Aiwa cassette stereo and it works/sounds great.Enter [ Michael Apr 18, 2017 ]
Yes, the BT1 has an optical output and the Martin Logan soundbars appear to have an optical input. Should be quite easy! [ Joseph Apr 17, 2017 ]
I am sorry that I don't know since I am using all Android products to interface. If my experience is any indicator, I'd expect that it will be pretty seamless with the Apple products. [ Robert Nov 02, 2014 ]
This device is Bluetooth (basic and APT-X). Simply have your iPhone or other Bluetooth-capable device link to it in the device's settings. I have the BT1 connected to the DAC in the PT Nova 125 integrated amp. [ Lawrence Oct 22, 2014 ]
