Radio World is featuring winners of its 2011 “Cool Stuff” Award this month.
The “Cool Stuff” judges have recognized JK Audio designs before; and they like the new BlueDriver S series of audio interface adapters. They use CSR’s aptX low-latency coding for high-fidelity stereo over Bluetooth wireless connectivity. CSR aptX promises great stereo audio quality over Bluetooth wireless connectivity. Audio frequency bandwidth provides “hi-fi” performance while low audio coding delay minimizes latency effects and “lip-sync” issues.
S series models are dedicated transmitters or receivers. You can mix any female transmitter with any male receiver. These models also pair to other JK Audio Bluetooth-equipped products, which soon will feature aptX low latency as well, and remain compatible with other SBC-equipped A2DP products.
This award selection is yet another example of how radio engineers are expressing more interest these days in products that are not traditionally thought of as being just for “radio.” Meanwhile, Joe Klinger was equally excited by the attendee response to his pending new Concierge 2x6 radio talk show system and companion Guest Module series of control surfaces.
