Arcam Mini Blink tooth – The best so far!

Superb bit of kit – effectively well worth it. Beforehand acquired two other (more cost-effective) blue tooth receivers (both of those neets) and this knocks the socks off of them in phrases of that mystical ‘wow’ component. Never get me mistaken – each neets did the job and sounded ok but i understood that my set up was capable of sounding superior. Soon as i plugged in, paired up and started off streaming i realized that i had just spent some tricky gained dosh very well. Would absolutely endorse this product to any person with a semi-first rate setup.

Arcam miniblink restores faith in bluetooth. . For a number of years i had a logitech bluetooth receiver and to be truthful i would stopped utilizing it these kinds of was my disappointment with it. The miniblink is in a unique league totally. It appears wonderful and is funds effectively used. If you might be thinking of obtaining this do not be reluctant, you will not be disappointed.

Wonderful small device, was really easy to set up. Excellent sound by my rca link into my appears system. I am employing this to stream mp3 new music from my tablet and spotify from my cellular phone. Would advocate this merchandise. As soon as you have paired your device’s for the very first time the arcam miniblink becomes active when you switch back again on your bluetooth. I am incredibly pleased with this unit.Here are the specifications for the Arcam Mini Blink tooth:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.

Coupled up by means of my old arcam amp, this small unit is a good performer. Set up and setup with my iphone took a lot less than a minute.

Great seem specially with apt x outfitted equipment. Incredibly pleased with element and great to use with spotify.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Polished pebble!
  • Added lifespan for older HiFi separates and speakers, get that quality reproduction from your old kit married to the new.
  • Exemplary sound quality – well done Arcam.

I wanted primarily to be able to play music from the bbc radio 3 iplayer app through my hifi via bluetooth from my galaxy s5. This elegant little pebble provides audiophile quality sound at a fraction of the price of most dacs. Very few drop outs and the playback device doesn’t have to be sat right next to it to ensure consistent connection. Also hifi sound via poweramp, handling hires (96-24) files with aplomb. (word of warning on poweramp: always turn the equaliser off for classical recordings and set the tone controls to neutral as there is far much distortion of the source with the inbuilt eq settings). However, the sound quality you get is somewhat dependent on the quality of the bluetooth connection. Not nearly so impressive handling hires files from my sony nwz-a15 with far too much hiss. Files from this device played far better through the aux connection to the amp.

Do not purchase anything at all else. I have purchased lots of bluetooth receivers some were not inexpensive in the past but this just one is the most effective. I have a technics amp and was starting to glimpse for a whole new process such as really expensive speakers but assumed i would give this minimal box of methods a go gosh am i happy i did.

I acquired this to modernise an aged nineteen seventies audio amp. It really is a fantastic piece of kit and isn’t going to will need a password to log on. I also did a comparison with the bluetooth interface on my new denon dm41dab amp. By the denon, the sound is terrific, but plugging the arcam blink into the aux input and evaluating a several tracks between the denon and arcam bluetooth inputs, the arcam wins palms down. The best conclude is especially crisp as a result of the arcam blink. Guaranteed, it is really expensive but it is really manufactured by a dependable audio corporation, not a laptop or computer equipment agency. Is it value a few occasions the price tag of a ‘normal’ receiver?.I am a retired audio engineer and this is very well well worth the cash.

Analogue amps can be made use of once more.

Great sound – but not as fantastic as the previous physically connected docking stations of the previous.

Amazing bluetooth receiver, good quality soundstage. . I had originally acquired a homespot bluetooth receiver and it sounded like absolute garbage. So it was instantly returned and i spent the additional on this,. If you value superior quality audio its worthy of the excess expense. Extremely silent, fantastic musical equilibrium, no distortion, good stereo image.

This receiver was unquestionably the finest of the 3 bluetooth receivers that i have had. The some others had been the belkin f8z492 and the esinkin bluetooth adapter which looked accurately like the logitech unit. All a few units go through from stutter through playback, using ipad, ipod, and ipad and even a blackberry dtek60. The miniblink was the the very least impacted, and i would call it a slight hiccup rather than a stutter. The sound top quality from the miniblink was outstanding on my marantz procedure. It reproduced new music with clarity and honesty, offering an practically ideal reproduction of any of the soundtracks i performed. . Its as while it loses a 2nd of the soundtrack and then joins the two bits alongside one another?.This seemed to occur at around 4 – 5 moment intervals.

Exemplary sound quality – well done arcam. . Actually the other good reviews are completely right. This really is a very good device. The only thing that lets it down, just a little, is the lightness of the casing. It would be nicer if it were a bit more reassuringly weighted. That’s the only negative though. Other than that, it’s simplicity itself to use – just press and hold the only button to put into pairing mode, search for it on your device and connect. Then play music on your device. The sound quality is exemplary: it sounds better than my ipod classic piped directly into the hifi via a pure i20 dac, which sounded pretty good already.Basically, streaming music sounds, to me, as good as my hifi (rotel and q acoustics) could reasonably ever be expected to sound.

    Add bluetooth streaming to an older hifi system easily. Works well to upgrade an older system so i can stream music by bluetooth and give it a new lease of life. Not as good as the audioengine b1 but its half the price and a real audio quality sound.

    1. Added lifespan for older hifi separates and speakers, get that quality reproduction from your old kit married to the new. . Easy to connect up to the stereo, simple connection via bluetooth, and away you go. I have this connected to my old hifi components from the 1990s. My hifi components were expensively assembled back than, technics with acoustic energy ae109 bi-wired speakers. Now with the blibk unit i have my entire ipod catalogue, 900 audiobooks, 1000 albums, available in high quality, deep, resonant proper sound and not via headphones, i can fill a room with sound, and it sounds amazing. There is a little drop out if you walk between the computer and blink unit, but with line of sight there are few issues, even the cat sniffing round the blink unit doesn’t affect the quality of sound. The unit is very small, it looks like a highly polished black shiny pebble ofwhitby jet, it is so simple to use there are just three instructions on the box. What pleases me most is that this unit has given renewed life and vigour to my old stereo components, and the improvement in the quality of the sounds reproduction through the bi-wired speakers iis superb.

    1. Brilliant way to get your hifi streaming. . Incredible product for streaming from any bluetooth source. I use it with an ipad, ipod, samsung tablet, and roberts 93i radio (with bluetooth adaptor). The sound quality is superb and in a different league to other bluetooth receivers i’ve used. Build quality is excellent too.
