Bluetooth audio transmitter
Pair your favorite Bluetooth headphones with your AV receiver to continue listening to your favorite music, movies, or TV programs at night. You can also play audio from both speakers and Bluetooth headphones simultaneously. If you have a family member or a friend who is hearing impaired, we recommend this setup. You can connect one pair of headphones at a time.
By connecting a pair of speakers in a second room to the AV receiver, it’s possible to enjoy 5.1 channel surround sound in the main room and a separate source or music stream in the second room, such as a den or patio. You can also play the same audio in both so that everyone in your home can enjoy and cheer your favorite team on Sunday evening or listen to the same song in both rooms. The AV receiver supports 2-source, 2-zone audio.
