Bluetooth to mixer??
« on: August 04, 2020, 07:16:16 pm »

What's a good way to get some break songs to my QU mixers via bluetooth?
There are several receivers available including:
Alto Bluetooth Total XLR Bluetooth Receiver
On-Stage Stands BC2000 Stereo Bluetooth Receiver
Galaxy Audio JIB/BT8R Stereo Bluetooth Receiver

Battery with optional plug-in power would be great.
What has worked for you?

?

There are multitudes available ... I have this one, bought in Australia and works very well; find a local supplier:
https://www.altronics.com.au/p/a1107a-high-power-bluetooth-v5.0-audio-transmitter-and-receiver/

But you may want balanced output?  Then look at DACs with bluetooth receivers ... there's also a wide selection of these, such as SMSL M200, M300 or Topping DX3 ...  Go to this site and choose:

I have a consumer grade Logitech that works great.  Amazon for $25 or so...

Radial BT-Pro V2. Can be powered via USB or phantom. Not cheap, but Radial quality.

Switchcraft 318BT is what I use, runs off internal phantom power from mixer so no external power supply needed but does have micro usb in for power if you plugging for example directly to a powered speaker. They do make a stereo version if you care for stereo audio.

I've used the Alto for a couple years...has held up well, runs reliably...fidelity loss  of course relegates it to exactly what you are asking about...background music.
I mean you can eq/beef up the audio enough that the average client might not notice it for dance stuff, but I wouldn't make it my primary signal.

and this guy, couple years back, turned me on to using my Sennheiser gear in this way.

fidelity is excellent and it has made such a difference over the years on things like outdoor weddings where I didn't want to run 200-300 ft of xlr across the grass and underfoot.

pricey, but I had already owned one of the dongles at the time, just to offer up some other wireless handheld options from vocalists who wanted a certain mic.. I can pull whatever from my box and make it wireless, but putting one of the dongles into the main-out of the mixer and then a belt pack receiver at the powered speaker..yeah...gold !!
