The Audio Precision Bluetooth Duo option is a completely revised, upgraded Bluetooth® hardware module, with dedicated source and sink radios, new Bluetooth chips and the latest firmware, higher RF power, and improved RF shielding. Supported by Audio Precision’s APx500 measurement software (NOTE: version 4.5 or later required), Bluetooth Duo offers a range of new audio codecs, new operational features in the supported profiles, and faster connection times. The option can be installed into any APx modular analyzer manufactured later than mid-2012. (AP’s legacy Bluetooth module is available for earlier generations APx analyzers or cases where APx500 software v4.4.2 or earlier is required.)
As an APx module, Bluetooth Duo is part of an all-in-one solution, integrated into the analyzer and leveraging the power and flexibility of the APx system. Bluetooth Duo can share the analog, digital, chip-level I2S and TDM protocols, PDM, or HDMI input/output capabilities installed in the analyzer. Intuitive and powerful, the APx500 software provides access to a long list of audio measurements and Bluetooth settings and parameters. APx creates logs of sent and received commands and interactions, and can easily automate Bluetooth I/O, connection, pairing, and settings commands in a stepped sequence for production work. When new Bluetooth features and improvements are made available, Bluetooth firmware upgrades can be distributed and installed in the field.
