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.

BTA 10 is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy wireless connection I just connected this. I plugged it into my stereo, turned it on, add it to my laptop using Bluetooth, and that's it! It works perfectly! My wife then connected from her iPhone - in seconds. This product is very simple to use, sounds good, and is relatively inexpensive. I love it!

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..

Is there a way to rename the device? I have more than one but I can't easily identify which one is in the living room versus the bed room, etc., because they are named the same.

Asked by: 2hks
If you are using an Iphone, there is no way for it to be renamed so what we usually suggest is turn off the other BTA 10 if not in use. However if you are using an Android phone, you may connect your BTA 10 one at a time and change the Bluetooth profile name on your phone.

Will the BTA 10 stream audio to an HK Onyx Studio 4? In other words, can the BTA 10 simultaneously (1) send audio via RCA connection to my older sound system and (2) stream the audio it is receiving via bluetooth to my HK Onyx Studio 4 speakers?

Asked by: Paul Bunyan
The BTA 10 can only stream the audio it is receiving via Bluetooth, since the BTA 10 is only a Bluetooth receiver and not a Bluetooth transmitter. It cannot send audio from a sound system to a Bluetooth speaker like the Onyx Studio 4.

Can the BTA-10 be used to connect two non powered speakers to the JBL SB450 soundbar?

Asked by: jeffrorrt
The BTA 10 and the JBL SB 450 are both Bluetooth receivers so unfortunately they cannot connect with each other.

Is the Bluetooth adapter compatible with my HK 3490

Asked by: Really
Yes it is. Simply plug the BTA 10 to the analog input port of the HK 3490 so it would be able to play the signal coming from the BTA 10.
