• Radial Engineering BT-Pro V2 Bluetooth stereo receiver

    Canadian manufacturer Radial Engineering has recently announced the availability of its BT-Pro V2 Bluetooth receiver, previewed at last NAMM and basically an upgrade of the BT-Pro, launched in 2015.

    The BT-Pro V2 allows you to add a set of stereo Bluetooth inputs to a sound system, for wireless connection to mobile devices, tablet or laptops.

    Audio quality has improved with the switch to the Bluetooth 5.0 protocol (which extends the data rate to 6Mbps), keeping the existing balanced XLR outputs. A headphone output is provided for troubleshooting, along with a Bluetooth Pair switch that also doubles as a play/pause control. The BT-Pro V2 can be powered using an included adaptor or via 48V phantom power.

    Unlike the original version, each unit now has a unique device ID so multiple receivers can be deployed in close proximity. Also, the latest model of the BT-Pro combines a 14-gauge steel outer shell with an injection-molded insert that improves wireless reception and increases the effective range up to 30 meters (100ft).

    Y-cables, looping audio signals through

    This article will explain loop-though connections and "y-cables" for analog audio signals.

    To obtain one or more copies of a signal (for example, to distribute the signal from a mixer to various self-powered speakers or power amplifiers) we use parallel connections. To do this we simply connect each terminal (pin) of the connectors in parallel. That is, 1 to 1, 2 to 2 and 3 to 3 (or tip to tip, ring to ring and sleeve to sleeve in a TRS connector). When we split a signal in two in this way, we refer to a "Y-cable" or "Y" connection, since the division of a signal in two looks like letter "y". Contrary to what it may seem, a y-cable is not a technically incorrect solution, but a correct way of splitting the audio signal. In fact, when a self-powered loudspeaker system or one channel of...
