Auris AU142 overview

  • 1Description

Add wireless audio streaming capabilities to your stereo or speaker system with the black auris bluMe Bluetooth Audio Receiver. It is equipped with Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity and can communicate with devices up to 100' away. The bluMe connects to your system via its stereo RCA or optical outputs for near universal connectivity. As an added convenience, the bluMe includes a stereo RCA cable and an 1/8" to RCA cable.

Built-In DAC
In addition to being a Bluetooth music receiver, the bluMe is also a digital-to-analog converter (DAC). Digital tracks are sequences of code. To turn this code into a signal that speakers can recognize, you need digital-to-analog converters. The bluMe features the AK4396 by AKM, a Hi-Fi 24-bit / 192 kHz upsampling DAC sporting a 120 dB signal-to-noise ratio for reduced noise and distortion characteristics.
Bluetooth with aptX & AAC Support
The bluMe uses Bluetooth 4.1 to stream any format of music from your smart device, laptop, or computer. Most devices use the basic SBC Bluetooth music codec, but the Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) and aptX, enhanced-performance digital audio codecs, are also supported.
Audio and Video in Sync with aptX Low Latency
The delay between your TV and speakers is a common problem within many wireless audio solutions. With the bluMe, enjoy movies knowing that picture and sound will always sync properly. The bluMe features aptX Low Latency technology that reduces this latency down to less than 40 ms, virtually eliminating lip-sync issues to give you a smooth audio/visual experience.
Enhanced Wireless Range with the High Gain Antenna
To combat range limitations and dropout issues, the bluMe employs an external high-gain antenna to extend the wireless range, helping to ensure consistent, stable, glitch-free performance up to 100'.
Clear Frequency and High Interference Tolerance
The bluMe is designed to maintain a robust and balanced wireless sound experience that is unaffected by interference from surrounding wireless networks.
Stereo RCA & Optical Connectivity
The bluMe has a pair of gold-plated RCA jacks that operate as analog outputs. Any audio system with a standard analog audio input can connect to the bluMe with the supplied RCA cable. For systems that have a 1/8" "mini" jack input, use the supplied 1/8"-RCA cable. The bluMe also features an optical out so you can connect to an outboard DAC or the digital input of a receiver, giving you a pure high-res digital signal through to your sound system.
Designed for Simple Setup
Pairing any smart device to the bluMe is designed to be a breeze. Simply push the control button on the front of the unit briefly and it automatically goes into pairing mode. Activate Bluetooth on your smart device, select "auris bluMe" from the list of available devices, and you're ready to rock. The bluMe can connect to one smart device at a time, but is capable of remembering up to eight devices. When more than one device needs to stream through the bluMe, just turn Bluetooth off in the first device, turn Bluetooth on in the second, and select "auris bluMe" as the device. There is no need to reset the bluMe or press its control button a second time once the device is stored. Even powering the bluMe is easy. Draw power from a wall socket or through the included USB cable, which allows you to power it directly from your computer, laptop, or compatible home theater displays/TVs and sound systems.
Access All Your Audio Media, Wirelessly
The bluMe can play any audio source a Bluetooth-enabled device can access, opening up a virtually unlimited universe of music to enjoy through your audio system, so you're always in control – not just of the music that's stored on your device, but also music streaming services such as Pandora and Spotify, Internet radio stations, podcasts, and music libraries connected to a wireless home network.
Aluminum Chassis
The chassis of the bluMe is extruded out of aluminum, and anodizing provides enhanced protection and finish. The bluMe is designed to blend into your décor while sitting next to nearly any home audio component.

    Auris AU142 reviews

    bluMe Bluetooth Audio Receiver (Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So glad I shelled out for this! I spent a long time researching Bluetooth audio receivers. I had narrowed it down to a couple of entry level units in the $50 - $100 bracket. However, ultimately I decided to spend more for the peace of mind that came with the solid reviews this unit has. Totally glad I did, no buyers remorse. Love, love, love this little unit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A vast improvement. Sounds great - a vast improvement over the little black plastic box I had been using. Subtlety and detail are there. Using to send audio from my desktop iMac (via aptX). Pairs very quickly. Excellent build and packaging. All with the convenience of bluetooth.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent product giving high quality music reproduction. Excellent sound quality and very easy to pair. Very slight noise from speakers when there is no audio stream is not present when music plays - even in the quietest classical passages.
