RBH Sound unveiled a home audio amplifier lineup during the 2016 CES show in Las Vegas.
The BT100 amplifier features a built-in Bluetooth 4.0 radio, and is capable of delivering 50 Watts per channel of class D power into a pair of 4Ohm speakers. RBH also incorporated the aptX codec into the BT100, ideally giving the amplifier improved sound quality and increased streaming efficiency with enhanced overall dynamic range. Virtually any Bluetooth enabled device pairs with the BT100, allowing the user to wirelessly stream a playlist through their favorite speakers.
RBH also added three additional inputs: a 1/8-inch (3.5mm) analog stereo headphone jack auxiliary input, a set of RCA-style analog input jacks, and an industry-standard SPDIF optical digital input that gives the BT100's built-in digital-to-analog converter the ability to decode and play up to 192k / 24 bit high resolution audio formats. The SPDIF input allows the BT100 to be connected to nearly any flat panel television, making it simple for people to upgrade the sound of their flat panel television with a pair of bookshelf, on-wall, in-wall/in-ceiling speakers, or a stereo speaker bar. On the rear panel of the amplifier is a single RCA-style volume tracking subwoofer pre-out that allows users to add a powered subwoofer to the system for bass support. Switching between the amplifier’s inputs and adjusting the volume is simple with the included IR remote or via the multi-touch rotator knob on the front panel.
The BT100 measures 7.5inches wide by 5.5inches deep by 2inches high and weighs just under 3lbs, allowing it to be easily tucked away in a corner or cabinet.
The BT100 is available now through the company’s authorized dealer and international distributor network and for those without an authorized RBH dealership nearby, orders will soon be taken via the company’s web site and on Amazon.
