Bluetooth receiver into aux input

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by David A. Davis, Apr 25, 2018.

  1. I just ordered a BT receiver so that I can stream from my phone/tablet into my amp. Anybody have any experience with this, good or bad?

    My rehearsal studio has a Blue tooth receiver plugged into the PA mixing board that I can pair my tablet to and it comes thru the PA system. Great for playing songs we want to cover.

  3. I think it will depend on latency.
    Too much between pluck and sound out will be weird.

  4. I'm just going to use it as an input to the aux. Not really worried with latency. I'll hear my playing in time with the streaming music, I hope.

  5. Do you mean streaming as in, over the Internet?
  6. no, just from a MP3. Instead of having a cable to mess with.
  7. Could you please supply a link to the bluetooth receiver you speak of

    Not sure about that particular one, but I use a......sigh......Bose receiver that works great.

    Looks like they no longer make it though.

    I should have been clearer. I own that one and it works fine as both transmitter and receiver. I tried to use it to transmit bass to a Bluetooth speaker. Works but the delay is way too long to be useful for that.

    I used one for practice. Couldn’t use and charge at same time, linking was occasionally finicky. Went back to cable.

    As far as I know, you can't stream video over Bluetooth, not enough bandwidth.

    I suck, but nobody really notices
    I'd use a cord bro. Better quality sound. 0 chance of failure. I don't care for bluetooth anything. I always seem to get interference, and connection problems.

    Good quality Bluetooth transmitters AND receivers can sound pretty good.
    Poor quality ones sound like crap. Distance is always "short". And neither will ever match hardlines
    and higher resolution formats, but the goods ones sound OK. Tell us about your experience with it when you get a chance...
