Heritage Audio BT-500 500 Series Bluetooth Streaming Module

Single slot 500 series Bluetooth streaming module
MFR# BT500

Product Description

The Heritage Audio BT-500 streams audio from your mobile device over Bluetooth and delivers a fully balanced, +22 dBu stereo output. Employing latest generation audio specific Bluetooth technology, the best Codecs your devices can support, and a state-of-the-art Burr Brown based analog signal path, it solves the irritating problem of connecting your iOS or Android device to your Studio setup.

To this day this has been solved using mini-jack to XLRs adapter cables, but the limitations of mobile devices' analog audio paths have become clearly apparent. Listening to references on the iTunes Store, recordings sent by email, Spotify, You Tube, you name it. You do it every day, all the time. Nevertheless integration has been inconvenient to say the least, until now.

SOUND QUALITY OVER BLUETOOTH? AAC & APT

The BT-500 automatically recognizes your device's best codec option and uses it for streaming. Apple's iTunes Store and YouTube use AAC as native so streaming from an iPhone or iPad will result in a lossless transmission, much better than an analog wired connection! The vast majority of Android devices have already adopted the APTX codec, which is nearly lossless and the standard that wireless high-quality headsets and sound bars have adopted. In case your device can't support neither AAC nor APTX, the BT-500 will stream audio using the classic SBC codec.

BURR BROWN PEDIGREE´S IN THE ANALOG PATH

The BT-500 substitutes your mobile device's analog circuitry with a state of the art, fully differential Burr Brown balanced output stage which delivers a full 0 dBfs = +22 dBu output able to drive a load of 600 Ohms. This allows direct level comparisons while mastering or mixing with Apple´s iTunes Store or mobile stored reference mixes.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
