BLUETOOTH MUSIC RECEIVER – RECYCLE OLD RECEIVERS
Do you still have your old receiver from college tucked away in your closet that managed to survive countless admonishes from the wife to “throw that piece of junk out”? Or maybe you’ve gotten your hands on a vintage receiver passed down from your parents and want to make use in your listening space with your new/modern devices?
AV receivers can still offer a lot in an audio setup, such as adding a number of inputs to your system and can even feature a phono input so you can have an easy hook-up for your turntable. So naturally, you might be curious about how it can fit into you’re more modern life.
One commodity we take advantage of is Bluetooth; pretty much everything has Bluetooth nowadays, and it makes things that much easier in terms of listening to music. Our B1 Bluetooth Music Receiver is a great tool to have to make streaming sound awesome. But have you ever wondered if older equipment would work with it? Many times, we get asked if our B1 can be used with old dusty AV receivers.
The short answer is “yes!”
The long answer is “yes, totally!”
The B1 Bluetooth Music Reciever features line level RCA outputs, so they can easily be used with receivers both old and new. All you need to do to get this up and running is connect a standard RCA cable to the B1’s RCA output and your receiver’s RCA input, plug the B1 into a power outlet, pair/connect your device to the B1, and then you’re done! Pretty soon you’ll be partying like it’s 1989!
Even old computer speakers or any powered speaker system should be able to be used with the B1 Bluetooth Music Receiver. If they have RCA inputs, you would just need to use an RCA cable for this setup. Some powered speakers only have a mini-stereo input, but the B1 still works great even with these kinds of speakers; all you’d need is a mini-stereo to RCA cable.
Sometimes, you may want to use an old receiver with newer speakers. We offer two models of passive speakers (the P4s and HDP6s) that pair great with most receivers. If you wanted to connect a pair of our powered speakers to your receiver, you would need to make sure your receiver has a line level output; if it does- great! All you’d need to do is connect that output to either of the analog inputs on our powered speakers.
