Newmarket, NH (April 30, 2012) Russound announces the BSK-1 Bluetooth Source Kit, a high performance wireless audio kit for enabling all portable Bluetooth-equipped devices to stream content to any multiroom audio system regardless of brand.


Unlike other Bluetooth adapters, the BSK-1 is specifically designed for residential and commercial system integrators as well as discerning consumers who refuse to trade performance for price.

The BSK-1 features a unique two-piece design comprising of a Bluetooth transceiver and separate audio interface receiver with built-in active balanced line drivers for maximum signal clarity; this intuitive design enables the units to be placed up to 300 feet apart. With an in-room Bluetooth wireless range of up to 100 feet in line-of-sight applications, the BSK-1 readily meets all requirements for premium quality Bluetooth wireless connectivity and performance.

Consistent with its custom installation pedigree, the BSK-1 audio interface uses a single CAT-5 cable connection to the Bluetooth audio interface receiver for communication and power. A single cable connection provides installation flexibility, enabling it to be mounted on a table top or discretely hidden inside a standard electrical junction box. The BSK-1 integrates seamlessly with all multiroom audio system installations, offering maximum flexibility when paired with the best selling Russound C-Series line of multizone audio systems.
