New Portable Audio Receivers Equip Your Favorite Portable or Home Speaker System with Wireless Bluetooth® Capability

OAKDALE, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- XtremeMac today announces the launch of two new products — the BT Connect and BT Home Connect Portable Bluetooth®Audio Receivers — which enable Apple product enthusiasts to turn their favorite non-Bluetooth home or portable speaker systems into wireless devices with Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) quality sound.

With a unique, compact design, the XtremeMac™ BT Connect receiver allows Apple lovers the ability to unleash music wirelessly, turning a previously non-Bluetooth portable speaker system into a wireless one. With 10 hours of playback on a fresh pack of AAA batteries, music can last all day or all night. For the home or office, the XtremeMac BT Home Connect receiver equips a traditional home speaker system with wireless Bluetooth capability that frees listeners from both cord and dock.

Both the XtremeMac BT Connect and BT Home Connect receivers utilize AAC Codec - the standard format for mobile Apple products, to achieve better sound quality than Sub-Band Coding Codec (SBC) format. After initial set-up, the XtremeMac BT Connect and BT Home Connect receivers remember your mobile device's Bluetooth connection for easy access, with an LED indicator that confirms connectivity.

The BT Connect receiver's features include:

  • Portable Bluetooth Audio Receiver with AAC, designed to work seamlessly with your Bluetooth enabled Apple product.
  • Small form factor with unique design allows for a clean and simple wireless audio solution.
  • Remembers your Bluetooth connection for easy access once paired.
  • Provides 10 hours of playback on fresh AAA batteries.
  • U.S. Manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP): $59.95
