The Belkin Music Receiver lets you connect a Bluetooth-enabled wireless device such as an iPod, iPhone or laptop to your home audio system. With a range of 30 feet, this receiver lets you control your music remotely without needing to make adjustments on the audio system itself. (Although the receiver is capable of connecting to only one wireless device at a time, you can pair up to eight separate devices with a one-time setup on each device.
Things You'll Need
- Belkin Music Receiver
- Audio cable, two 3.5 millimeter ends or a 3.5 millimeter and an RCA connector (both included)
- AC power adapter (included)
- Wireless device
Attach the 3.5 millimeter plug of the audio cable to the headphone jack on the Music Receiver.
Attach the other end of the audio cable, either the 3.5 millimeter or the RCA connector, to the audio input on your home audio system.
Attach the AC power adapter cable to the DC input jack on the Music Receiver. Plug the adapter into an AC outlet. The blue LED should flash once to let you know that the unit is on and ready for pairing with your wireless device.
Navigate to the Bluetooth Manager on your wireless device. On the home page of the Bluetooth Manager, tap "Settings," then "General," then "Bluetooth."
Search in "Bluetooth Devices" for the Belkin Music Receiver's ID. The device ID is printed on the bottom of the unit, and is one letter followed by two numbers. Click on the device ID.
Enter "0000" when you're prompted to enter a PIN number. This will cause your wireless device to pair with the Music Receiver. The blue LED light will flash once after pairing, and it will remain illuminated once the connection is made.
Reconnect to your Belkin Music Receiver after moving your wireless device out of its range for more than 15 seconds, or after turning off the Bluetooth feature on your wireless device. Navigate to the Bluetooth Manager, and click on the correct device ID. You won't be prompted to enter the PIN again.
Pair another wireless device. Navigate to the Bluetooth Manager on the currently-connected device and disable the Bluetooth function. Follow the Pairing on the new Bluetooth device to connect the new device.
Tips & Warnings
- After pairing, some devices will connect immediately and the LED light will stay on. Others will ask you if you want to connect, and the LED will stay off until a connection is made.
- If you move the wireless device out of the Music Receiver's range, the connection will be lost and the LED light will go off. If you move the wireless device back into range within 15 seconds, the connection will re-establish itself.
- Don't use the Music Receiver near water or heat sources of any kind.
- Clean the unit with a dry cloth only.
- Keep the power cord out of traffic paths to protect it from damage, and unplug the Music Receiver when it is not in use.
