The BSK-1 Bluetooth® Source Kit enables a portable media player, smartphone, or other device equipped with Bluetooth wireless technology to transmit audio content to any multiroom audio system.
When used with a Russound MCA-Series controller, the BSK-1 kit can be used as a global source for system-wide access, or as a Local Source for independent use by a specific room. Local source use with MCA-Series controllers provides additional automation features automatically turning on the audio, selecting the BSK-1 source input and setting the volume in a room configured as the ‘Primary Zone’ via SCS-C5 software.
The BSK-1 is comprised of two components, the BTC-1X Remote Transceiver and the BTC-1 hub that is used for audio wiring connections, power, and 12vDC trigger connections to the main audio system.
The BTC-1x Remote Transceiver is wired with a single CAT-5 cable up to 300′ allowing for optimum placement in different system environments. In other words, you can locate the BTC-1 hub near your main audio equipment in one area of the house and remotely locate the BTC-1X transceiver in the bedroom, living room, or other area where the Bluetooth source device will be located. The BTC-1X transceiver features a 49′ (15m) range and the Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) ensures high quality stereo audio. It utilises advanced aptX encoding for CD-like quality from supported devices.
