The BTC-1X Bluetooth® module is a transceiver that lets you wirelessly connect a portable media player, smartphone, or other Bluetooth equipped device to any Russound MCA-Series controller. This unit only works with a Russound MCA-Series controller. Can’t work by itself.
It transmits balanced line audio to the XStream Bluetooth input. The BTC-1X also supports the aptX codec, providing enhanced audio quality that is far superior to standard Bluetooth audio.
The BTC-1X can be installed anywhere and can extend Bluetooth reception beyond the normal limits. It can even be programmed with a custom passcode and room name for easy identification when more than one is installed in a home, using only a USB cable and a free software download.
Like all Russound Local Source Modules, the BTC-1X can be set to automatically interrupt an active audio signal. It integrates easily with the MCA-Series controller via a dedicated CAT-5 connection. No other connection or power supply is required.
