    You Ask - We Answer

    Q: Does BT1 support the AAC codec? I want to stream from iOS devices, which do not have aptX, and at least want the sound quality associated with support for AAC.
    A: We didn't license the AAC codec for the BT1. In our group testing we found that there was virtually no difference between AAC and the standard A2DP SBC codec in this specific implementation.

    Q: Is this device Bluetooth 4?
    A: It's a Bluetooth 3.0 device. There aren't any sound quality differences between 3.0 and 4.0. Most of 4.0's new spec deals with low energy applications for wearables and other Bluetooth devices.

    Q: Is there any reason why I could not use this in a car, powered with my 5V adapter?
    A: You can definitely use it in your car with a 5V/1.0A USB power adaptor. We even include a USB power cable in the box.

    Serious Audio Performance

    The BT1 offers exceptional performance and is much more than a run-of-the-mill Bluetooth receiver. It uses the aptX® audio codec which allows Bluetooth to deliver the full bandwidth of music for outstanding audio quality. And unlike typical Bluetooth receivers the BT1 uses a pure digital signal path and top-flight internal components such as a Wolfson® DAC and a dual stage power supply to achieve the cleanest sound possible from Bluetooth.

    Optimized Wireless Reception

    In addition to its superior audible performance, the BT1 Bluetooth Receiver provides an advantage over having Bluetooth built into your primary audio component. Because it’s a stand-alone 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.

    The Perfect Partner

    While the BT1 can be used with any audio system, it is the perfect partner for a Peachtree nova 150/300 or novaSE integrated amplifier. Using the BT1’s included USB power cable you can directly power the BT1 from the amplifier. (Connect the USB power cable to the SERVICE ONLY connector on the rear panel of the nova150/300 or to the DC 5V connector on the novaSE.) In this setup the BT1 will turn on and off in sync with your amp. Slick!
