Sony DRC-BT15 Bluetooth Receiver / SRS-BT100 Speaker Announced



Bluetooth Devices Play Streamed Audio Wirelessly from Phones, MP3 Players and Laptops

Sony today introduced two personal audio products that deliver stereo audio with the wireless convenience of Bluetooth technology.

Both are designed to receive 2-channel stereo audio streams from an array of music sources via the advanced audio distribution profile (A2DP) of Bluetooth technology. The new DRC-BT15 Bluetooth receiver and the SRS-BT100 Bluetooth speaker can receive streamed music from compatible mobile phones, laptop computers and MP3 players.

Transform Your Headphones
Sony’s first portable Bluetooth receiver converts virtually any pair of headphones into a stereo headset and extends this wireless streaming technology to headphone styles that may not yet be available with embedded stereo Bluetooth capabilities.

Weighing just over half an ounce and measuring less than three inches long, the black and silver DRC-BT15 Bluetooth receiver clips to your clothing or can attach to an arm band. Simply plug your preferred headphones into the stereo mini-jack on the ultra-portable receiver, pair the receiver with a compatible Bluetooth device like the new NWZ-A820 Walkman video MP3 player, and start streaming music in stereo.

A simple toggle control allows you to adjust the volume, play, stop, pause, fast-forward or rewind the music streaming from your Bluetooth-enabled music source (using Bluetooth AVRCP or Audio/Video Remote Control Profile).

The receiver also has a discrete, embedded microphone that can be used for hands-free calls when you pair the receiver to a Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone.

A rechargeable lithium-ion battery delivers up to six hours of talk time or music playback. The receiver will be available in March for about $130.

Tabletop Bluetooth Speaker Streams in Stereo
For streaming music stored on a PC, MP3 player or mobile phone in your home or office, the SRS-BT100 Bluetooth speaker’s high-powered amplifiers with a total of 30 watts of power, fill a room with music. The new stand-alone speaker with MegaBass technology delivers rich sound from a paired Bluetooth device, such as a personal computer, that is within 30 feet of the speaker.

Through a simple synchronization process, the speaker scans for compatible Bluetooth devices and lets you select the music source you want paired with the speaker. You can select and manage audio from compatible Bluetooth devices, and manage the volume of the speakers with the supplied remote control.

To play back music stored in devices that are not Bluetooth-enabled, the speaker has an audio input so you can connect a music player. The SRS-BT100 Bluetooth speaker will be available in March for about $160.
