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).

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from convenient I bought this item to give me the ability to have control of input source of music when I am away from my high end system. It operates quite well. The accuracy of is not as high as my control board but close enough. Thanks

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great idea but less than adequate audio quality I bought this device with the hopes of being able to access my digital music library with good quality audio. I have since learned that bluetooth streaming has serious drawbacks because of the compression technology used. Playback via the BTA 10 was "tinny" and clearly unacceptable. I am not a audio purist so I wasn't looking for CD quality. The concept of this device is outstanding but, unless you plan on streaming audio into an elevator, you will not be pleased with the end result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great with Bose wave We bought a Bose wave and my wife wanted the cd attachment. This meant we could not use their Bluetooth accessory(bad design IMHO). So I went looking for an option. This is perfect it plugs into the RCA aux jack on the back of the cd expansion module and Bam!! Now I have Bluetooth for my phone and my wife has her CDs. Super easy to set up and a very small footprint( my guess less than two inches square by a half inch thick). It tucked behind the wave system and no one is the wiser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very EZ Install works perfect Super easy to install. Just plug it in, and connect via Bluetooth. Sound is super close to direct plug in. In some cases you can hear no difference.

Can this receive a bluetooth signal from my 2016 Samsung Smart TV and have the audio output connect to a stereo amp? I'm assuming I can also connect the ipod, ipad, iphone etc to the same unit to hear thru the same amp?

Asked by: jgnr
Thank you for the question, BTA 10 was designed to enable a non-BT receiver and/or powered speaker to accept Bluetooth signal to stream audio. Yes you can connect Bluetooth enabled devices such as iPod, iPod, iPhone etc. If your Smart TV has similar BT transmitter, that of a Smartphone or etc., then you can stream audio from it to a stereo amp. Please note, there will be an audio lag (few milliseconds) when streaming audio content from a TV to an external BT device.

Can I use this to connect my sub woofer to my bose soundbar

Asked by: Leo54
Unfortunately, this would not be able to connect your sub woofer to your soundbar. The BTA-10 is a Bluetooth receiver not a transmitter.

Will this connect to my tv and broadcast sound to my bluetooth headphones?

Asked by: Suzie
Thank you for the inquiry. No. This product connects to an auxiliary audio input of a receiver. A source device (smartphone, tablet, laptop, etc.) connects bluetooth and steams audio to it. Best Regards.

Can I use the HK-BTA 10 to transmit from smart tv to Bluetooth speakers

Asked by: Hector
This is not possible. The BTA10 is a Bluetooth receiver, not a transmitter. So, for example, if you had a receiver/speaker that wasn't Bluetooth, you could connect the BTA10 to the receiver and then transmit from your Bluetooth device (smart phone, computer, etc.) to the BTA10 which would then play to the receiver via the line audio output.
