If your smartphone or tablet supports the aptX audio enhancement CODEC the Cambridge BT100 bluetooth audio receiver can support it as well. AptX, which is featured on a growing number of mobile devices as well as MacBooks and Apple desktop computers, allows audio to be broadcast wirelessly in significantly higher quality than over standard Bluetooth. You’ll instantly notice more extensive dynamic range, deeper bass and crystal-clear top end.
Standard Bluetooth codec (SBC) has variable performance and its weaknesses are very apparent to music lovers including a reduction in high end clarity, muddiness or dullness on stringed content.
Conversely, the aptX codec has a fixed performance standard to guarantee a consistently excellent quality when music data is transferred wirelessly over Bluetooth. With almost CD-quality reproduction on offer, you’ll instantly experience significantly greater dynamics and infinitely more detail from your favourite music.
Virtually endless content
Allows content from any Bluetooth enabled device to the Stream Magic 6, DacMagic Plus or NP30. Great for music stored on the device and the virtually endless content available via internet radio, Last FM and Spotify etc.
Freedom and convenience
You can easily browse and choose music from a Bluetooth enabled device, from the comfort of a chair.
The upsampling technology in our Stream Magic 6 and DacMagic Plus means all music played through the Cambridge BT100 is significantly improved for even better sound quality.
High quality sound via aptX
aptX is a standard which delivers sound quality almost comparable to CD via Bluetooth with an aptX enabled device which the Cambridge BT100 will even intelligently auto-detect.
Easy to use
The Cambridge BT100 simply connects to the USB port on a Stream Magic 6, DacMagic Plus or NP30 and it’s ready to go. Unlike Airplay, there’s no Wi-Fi network, configuration or passphrases required, it’s completely hassle free. Plus it doesn’t just work with Apple devices – it works with any Bluetooth device.
No separate power
Conveniently, the Cambridge BT100’s USB connection also provides its power, meaning no additional power supply is required.
Not just music
As well as music, the Cambridge BT100 can be used to provide the audio when watching TV / video and playing Apps via a Hi-Fi system.
