TOPIC: Bluetooth connetion for SHD?

Bluetooth connetion for SHD? 4 months 1 week ago #48526

All,

I would like to add a bluetooth interface to my SHD. My friend would like to connect their phones and some apps have the casting option disabled such as Zoom. So I can't simply connect those sources to my SHD system.

There are tons of good Bluetooth to analogue devices available such as the iFi ZEN Blue but it makes no sense going from digital to analogue and then connect to the inputs of SHD. And again go through the ADC / DAC of the SHD.

Is there is way to add a bluetooth device to the LAN and have it function as a media server and then connect that server to the SHD ?

Any suggestions/advice is much appreciated.
regards, Peter

@ Juoigâ: I learned that the new Qualcomm chip CSR8675 is the key component. It supports 24 bit DAC/ADC HD streams over Bluetooth 5.0. But I understand the air interface still uses compression to transport the full stereo HD stream.

I found a similar device with Bluetooth 5.0 and Toslink SPDIF. I'll order one and share my experience.

Thanks so far.
