Wirelessly stream audio to any entertainment system.

Sometimes you want your favorite music to fill the room, not just your headphones. And if your home entertainment system already has Bluetooth® capability, you can wirelessly stream audio from a portable device (for instance, your smartphone or tablet). But what if your system isn’t equipped with Bluetooth technology? Not a problem. The Harman Kardon® BTA 10 external Bluetooth adapter connects directly to your entertainment system and enables you to stream audio wirelessly into the system from any Bluetooth-equipped portable device. The BTA 10’s HARMAN TrueStream™ technology means that its wireless audio connection to your entertainment system will be the highest quality possible – no matter what source device is supplying the audio. For your convenience, the BTA 10 has an LED indicator light that blinks as it searches for your Bluetooth-equipped device and stays steadily lit when it’s paired up successfully. The BTA 10 even comes with cables so that you can hook it up to your entertainment system. From home systems to portable speakers to speaker docks, the BTA 10 Bluetooth adapter adds wireless streaming capability to any audio system with a stereo 3.5mm aux input or stereo RCA inputs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very EZ Install works perfect Super easy to install. Just plug it in, and connect via Bluetooth. Sound is super close to direct plug in. In some cases you can hear no difference.

I have two BTA10 adapters.  One in my home and one in a vacation home.  Is there a way to change the name that appears in the Bluetooth window so I can keep them straight?

Asked by: Briansa
There is no option to rename the device on the BTA10 itself. However, on Android devices only, you can change the names within your phone/table via the Bluetooth settings menu. Simply tap on the paired device, in this case the BTA10, and from there you will have the option to rename it.

My iphone6 cannot pair with my BTA 10, none of the devices in my house will connect. Is there something that I am missing?

Asked by: cpac22
When the BTA-10 is powered On, it automatically goes into pairing mode (LED glows slowly). Please try going into your device and forgetting the BTA10. Then shut the phone down, completely OFF. Then boot the phone back up and completely shut it down a second time. This will allow the phone to go through an entire on/off cycle without ever seeing the BTA10, removing any remnants of the BTA10 connection. Now boot the phone up one more time and pair it with the BTA10 again. This should fix your issue. If it does not, please submit a case at www.harmankardon.com/support-contact.html and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to further assist you.

I have this device. Works well with everything except can't get my new iPhone 6 to pick it up.  Is it not compatible?

Asked by: Charlie1
When the BTA-10 is powered On, it automatically goes into pairing mode (LED glows slowly). Check your iPhone’s Bluetooth settings and it should be able to find and connect to it. Make sure you forget recent paired devices (from your iPhone) when trying to connect. Note, the BTA-10 allows connection up to 8 devices. I noticed that you are in South Africa. If you are still experiencing issues, please contact the store where you purchased the unit and they will be able to help.

Will this work with the AVR 240

Asked by: Cliff
Compatibility wise your BTA 10 is compatible with your AVR as long as you use the supplied 3.5mm Jack to RCA (L/R) and connect it to the Analog 1/2 L/R accordingly. Configure your receivers source setup so you can get the audio out of the BTA 10. Refer to your receivers owner's manual to get the procedure on setting up the source.

Will this device resolve the low volume issue that occurs when using a phones 3.5mm mini jack to a stereo receiver RCA input. When I hookup my phone via this method, the volume from my speakers is very low and I must increase the volume to hear the music.

Asked by: Mmcmcmmm
No, the BTA10 simply provides Bluetooth connectivity to receivers/amplifiers without wireless capabilities. It does not have the features to boost volume nor amplify a signal for connected device(s). The issue you have may be related to the source, component, and/or speakers . We suggest that you consult your device manufacturer(s) for additional assistance.

lap top connection

Asked by: malcolm
Bluetooth connection requires two components Stereo mode and Headset mode to be able stream music. As per design laptops/desktops BT connection is meant for BT enabled keyboards and mouses for user interaction, since you are connecting your laptop to HK BTA 10 (treat is as you are connecting to a portable speaker) to stream music, you need to update your laptop's drivers to be able to communicate to the BTA 10 for streaming music. We recommend that you get further assistance from your laptop's manufacturer for updating the drivers.
