Outlaw Audio just introduced the Model BTR-100 Universal Bluetooth Wireless Receiver with aptX, NFC and AAC. This low-cost, compact unit lets you stream high fidelity stereo sound from your mobile device to any audio product with RCA stereo inputs or 3.5mm stereo mini inputs. The device provides wireless audio streaming capabilities for A/V receivers, sound bars, or powered speakers.
While there are other Bluetooth receivers in the marketplace, the BTR-100 is one of the very few that includes easy paring and high quality audio transmission for Android, Apple, and Windows Mobile smartphones and tablets.
The BTR-100 features aptX for CD quality audio streaming with an aptX compatible source, “tap and pair” with NFC equipped devices and easy paring with others, and it is AAC and A2DP compatible.
What is aptX?
aptX audio coding delivers CD-quality audio wirelessly over Bluetooth, enabling users to eliminate wires without compromising on audio quality. With the aptX audio codec, source material is transparently delivered over the Bluetooth wireless link, whether it is stored uncompressed or compressed (MP3, AAC, WMA) format.
What is NFC?
Near Field Communication enabled devices can pair with the BTR-100 by a simple tap to the top of the unit. If you don’t have an NFC enabled device, the Outlaw Audio BTR-100 can be paired with your Bluetooth-enabled portable device with a single press of a button. Once paired, it will automatically re-connect with your Bluetooth device when in range.
What is AAC?
Advanced Audio Coding is a lossy compression and encoding scheme for digital audio. AAC generally achieves better sound quality than MP3 at similar bit rates, and is the format of choice not only for iTunes, iPhone, iPad, and iPod, but is also used by many other devices and sources.
What is A2DP?
Advanced Audio Distribution Profile allows distribution of audio content in mono and stereo to be streamed from one device to another over a Bluetooth connection.
