How to add Bluetooth to an AV Receiver

Adding a Bluetooth receiver to your stereo system is a great way to stream music from your phone or other devices wirelessly. If your stereo does not have a built-in Bluetooth receiver, you can easily add one with a Bluetooth adapter that will plug into the receiver’s 3.5mm aux input. Alternatively, you could look for a receiver that has built-in Bluetooth functionality or that includes an adapter in the box.

How to choose a Bluetooth adapter for the receiver?

There are a few things you need to take into consideration when choosing a Bluetooth adapter for your receiver. The first thing is to make sure that the adapter is compatible with your specific receiver model. Some adapters are only compatible with certain types or models of the receiver. If you’re unsure, check with the manufacturer or look for online reviews of the product.

You should also consider the range of the Bluetooth adapter. If you plan on using it in a large room, you’ll need an adapter with a good range. Besides, the range is essential if you want to use your device even when you are not in the same room as the receiver. For example, some Bluetooth adapters have a range of up to 100 feet, while others only have a range of 30 feet.

Take into account any particular features you might want, such as the ability to stream audio from your phone or tablet. In addition, some Bluetooth adapters include an NFC chip, which allows you to tap your phone to the adapter to initiate pairing.

Finally, look at the price and decide how much you’re willing to spend. Bluetooth adapters can range in price from around $20 to $100.

Selecting Bluetooth as the input source on the receiver

Is it difficult to connect a Bluetooth adapter to the receiver?

It is not difficult to connect a Bluetooth adapter to the receiver, but it may take a little bit of time to get everything set up and working correctly. However, it should be fairly easy if you have the correct information and tools.

  1. Connect the receiver to the Bluetooth adapter using the 3.5mm input.
  2. Adjust the volume on the receiver as needed.
  3. Select “BT” as the input source on the receiver.
  4. Put the Bluetooth adapter into pairing mode (refer to your adapter’s instructions).
  5. Pair the Bluetooth adapter with your device (refer to your device’s instructions).

Follow the instructions that come with the Bluetooth adapter and the receiver, and you will be able to get everything up and running without any issues.

Using a receiver with built in Bluetooth

Why do people want to add Bluetooth to a receiver?

Generally, there are several reasons why people might want to add Bluetooth connectivity to a receiver. First, it can allow them to wirelessly stream music from a Bluetooth-enabled device, such as a smartphone or tablet. It can be a convenient way to listen to music, especially if the receiver is in another room. Additionally, Bluetooth can provide hands-free calling capabilities, which can be beneficial if the receiver is located where it would be difficult to answer a phone call.

Finally, some people simply prefer the sound quality of Bluetooth audio streaming to other methods.
