    Switchcraft 318BT Reviews

    318BT Phantom-Powered Bluetooth Audio Receiver is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent device, gets the job done very elegantly Bought this device to test it out and very impressed with performance, buying 5 more as gifts. The device paired up quickly and effortlessly to my iPhone and gave great range. Only drawback I could see was output level, it is determined by setting volume on connected device, so you have to raise the volume on you playback device in order to get a higher level at the XLR output.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from For the price... When used with a Yamaha TF5 mixing console, the phantom power causes a continous peaking on the channel for 5-45 minutes after power up. I returned the first unit thinking it was bad, but the second unit does the same thing. Other units like this are more expensive, so I plugged in the 5v usb power on the aux port and it seems to work fine. I feel like I should get half of my money back since only half of the power ports work as advertised. Otherwise, sound is great and easy to connect to. It is a real bonus for the worship team!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like advertised...and well! Just plug it into an XLR jack on a mixer and turn on Phantom Power on the mixer to power it, and it connects to any device I have, very quickly. Not stereo. It has a power supply jack on the side of it, in case your mixer or connection doesn't have Phantom Power.
