Sony introduced the Bluetooth Music Receiver BM10 at IFA last week as expected. The device can be seen as a companion device to the IM10 Miracast Wireless Display that we reported on yesterday. Instead of wireless video streaming, the BM10 excels at high-quality wireless audio streaming .
The Sony BM10 Bluetooth Music Receiver has two RCA outputs and a micro USB port to provide the power. It is designed to be connected to a stereo hi-fi system, from which a smartphone or other Bluetooth-enabled device can stream music to.
Sony says the source of music can be within 100 metres of the sound system, although this is only for hardware that supports Bluetooth Class 1. The BM10 supports the aptX codec for CD-quality streaming, Bluetooth 3.0 and includes NFC for easy pairing with compatible devices. We’ll bring you news on pricing as soon as we have it.
