Smart devices such as smartphones are increasingly being used in broadcasting duties. Angry Audio’s Bluetooth Audio Gadget aims to make that interfacing easy.
The BAG can be used on air or in production studios used to play recorded interviews, streams or music into a mixer. It offers bidirectional audio for Skype, FaceTime and phone calls. Sound quality is high courtesy thanks to AAC and aptX codec algorithms.
Audio input comes via a Bluetooth receiver and wired XLR and 3.5 mm-1/8-inch wired inputs. There are balanced XLR stereo outputs along with AES67 digital outputs.
The whole system comes in a heavy-duty steel box.
