New Bluetooth Streaming Audio Module for Marantz Recievers
Marantz is having Bluetooth streaming audio capability for it's new, 004 series receivers, such as the SR-5004 and SR-6004. It is an extra cost option on the 5004, but included with the SR-6004. To make this magic work you need the just announced RX-101 streaming audio module for Bluetooth.
Now you can send the MP3 music from your phone or black berry to your audio system or home theater. Very cool.
"Based on the success of the IS301 and its Bluetooth audio streaming feature, we are pleased to officially begin accepting orders on the new RX101 Bluetooth Audio / IR Receiver module. When connected to the new M-Xport (Marantz eXpansion Port) on the back of the SR5004, the RX101 enables compatible Bluetooth devices such as the iPhone, iTouch, Treo, Blackberry, PCs, etc. to wirelessly stream audio to the RX101 and play it back through the SR5004.
With the ability to pair up to 8 devices, the RX101 is perfect for any system where music is stored on multiple devices. Because the RX101 is also an IR Receiver, an entire system can be hidden behind closed doors and be seamlessly controlled. Like the SR5004, the optional RX101 is scheduled to begin shipping in September."
