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 wonderful unit Quality of sound is pretty good. Even though the set up was straight forward, it would help to have a few line of instructions in the manual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small, Simple, turns anythng to Bluetooth device I've personally purchased twenty or more of the BTA-10's over time.. at least ten are active around the house and in my (older) cars. Family have the rest.. and love them too. BTA-10 is simple, small and does just what it's supposed to do.. bring older tech devices into the Bluetooth world. My only gripe, and it's in NO way a game changer... to date we cant change the SSID broadcast name.. it's always BTA-10.. so when you have more than one in the same vicinity it might be a bit confusing which to connect to. Most modern BT devices allow re-naming the BTA-10 their connecting to.. i.e. Kitchen, Den, Car1, etc.. but the SSID cant change .. yet :) GREAT DEVICE..

can the bta 10 be connected to my old avr 235 harmon kadon to enable bluetooth connection?

Asked by: Martinj
Yes, The BTA-10 is compatible with the AVR 235. Just use the 3.5mm mini stereo to RCA cable that came with the BTA-10. Connect the 3.5mm jack to the BTA-10 then the RCA jack to the L/R analog IN port on the back of your AVR.

I own a BTA10 for about 4 years. it was working perefectly until last year when it has started to cause problems connecting to my phone/laptop. I have to reset it many times until it connects... sometimes even the resetting doesn't work. what to do?

Asked by: Idan
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 doesn't, 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.

Hi I dont get it work on Win 7 ... windows says there is no driver?

Asked by: Rooo
The BTA 10 is an external Bluetooth adapter that is meant to connect directly to your entertainment system such as receivers (not computers) and enables you to stream audio wirelessly into the system from any from any Bluetooth-equipped audio source such as a mobile phone. If you want to stream from a computer, it must support Bluetooth. Please consult your computer documentation for help with that.

Is the BTA-10 compatible with iPod Touch, I believe 5 & 6th generation

Asked by: A PAZ
Unfortunately it will not work this way. The BTA10 is a Bluetooth receiver, not a transmitter. For example, if you wanted to Bluetooth your phone to your home stereo system that currently does not support Bluetooth, connecting the BTA10 would allow you to transmit the information from your phone to your BTA10, where the sound would then play into the stereo receiver. But it cannot act as a transmitter, to send audio from the BTA10 wirelessly to a BT speaker.

I have a radio shack STA-2200 digital synthesized receiver and have the BTA 10 connected to the AUX of the receiver.my IPhone will connect with the BTA 10 but there is no audio coming through the receiver.

Asked by: robbie r
Please ensure the BTA-10 is properly connected to the wall outlet, analog input, and wireless source. Once the correct input is chosen and your source device is playing audio, the BTA-10 will working as expected. Also, make sure the connection cable aren't damaged and source isn't on mute. If the issue still persists, please contact the support group for your digital synthesized receiver. The issue may be the input unit itself.

How to I make my computer make my bta 10 to the bta 10 on my receiver?

Asked by: gaaw
If you're talking about 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. If you have further questions, 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.

Hello there, My TV has bluetooth feature on audio output. I can choose the bluetooth device. Will it work if I take this product?

Asked by: milkertastan
If your TV has Bluetooth and is able to connect to other sources, the BTA 10 is not needed. The BTA 10 simply provides Bluetooth connectivity to devices (powered speakers and amps) that cannot receive a wireless signal. It is not designed to transmit a wireless audio signal from one source device (TV/computer) to an external device (speaker/headphones).
