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 Extended the life of my old "Play and Go" I had bought a Harmon Kardon Play and Go about 5 years ago because I was so impressed with the beautiful sound . . . the blue tooth makes it much more practical to play my music from my telephone bluetooth and the quality of sound is still great! Thanks for asking. Peace.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great with Bose wave We bought a Bose wave and my wife wanted the cd attachment. This meant we could not use their Bluetooth accessory(bad design IMHO). So I went looking for an option. This is perfect it plugs into the RCA aux jack on the back of the cd expansion module and Bam!! Now I have Bluetooth for my phone and my wife has her CDs. Super easy to set up and a very small footprint( my guess less than two inches square by a half inch thick). It tucked behind the wave system and no one is the wiser.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice product. Enjoy the ease of connection and the audio quality. I run a harman amp with high current and Bowers & Wilkins CM8 speakers. Sound is superb with rich mid range and bass reproduction. My only issue is the BT loses it's sync and needs to be powered down and restarted which is more inconvienent than a major issue in sound quality.

Is there a driver available for the bta 10 to connect my windows pc with the device? I am currently using a smartphone and tablet to connect with the music centre via the bta 10. On the pc the error displays "no driver found"

Asked by: Albertus
The BTA 10 does not need any special drivers to get connected to computers/laptops or any Bluetooth enabled devices. If ever the device asks for drivers, please perform the following: For Windows Operating Systems, you just need to update the Bluetooth Hardware of the computer/laptop. ** Go to Control Panel ** Go to Hardware and Sound ** Under Devices and Printers select Device manager ** In Device Manager select Network/Bluetooth Adapters ** Once there Update the Drivers For Mac OS, you would just need to update your operating system to the latest version.

Can this be powered from a usb power supply? Rather then using the supplied charger? 

Asked by: Paul 58
Yes, just be sure that your power supply has a rating of .4 amps (400mA) or higher, and it will work fine.

Hi, i am experienncing troubles with my hk bta 10. I am connected on my phone iphone 6s, playing music. But the bta 10 is unstable. the bluetooth falls out suddenly, happens alot, and i cant reconnect. i have to plug out cable to connect again. 

Asked by: LeonHelg
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 contact your local distributor in Norway. They will be able to assist you.

wil this work in my 2010 f250 with input jack and phone icon on console but without ford "sync" option?

Asked by: bluemule
As long as your system has an input jack, you can connect the BTA10 to it, and it will work fine. But please be aware, this is strictly a stereo audio Bluetooth device. This will give you stereo audio for music listening, but will not enable you to talk on the phone.

Does it work in a car? I do not have Bluetooth in my car and would like to connect to the AUX IN 3.5 jack. So it would have to power from the lighter plug using a USB cable. I have a 2.1A USB lighter adapter. Would that be sufficient to power the BTA 10?

Asked by: ch_08
Absolutely!! I use it in both my cars, exactly the same way you have described. It works great.

What is the difference in the sound quality between a high quality Harman Kardon blue tooth based system versus an identical Wi-Fi based system?

Asked by: Jerry
I don't know what identical wi-fi based system there is, but regardless, Bluetooth must compress the audio signal in order to transmit and receiver the Bluetooth information. However, when dealing with Wi-Fi there is no compression needed. So all in all, Wi-Fi is a better format

Will this work as a transmitter for a tv? We want to connect a wireless speaker via Bluetooth with the tv. Thanks

Asked by: Dthom
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.

Asked by: Bill23
Absolutely. The BTA10 is a stereo audio Bluetooth receiver with a standard analog audio output. It can be connected to any audio system that has an analog audio line level input, including the AVR7000.
