Best Bluetooth Adapter in India – ROBIN by Signature Acoustics

Posted by akshay 13/07/2017 6 Comment(s)

What exactly is ROBIN and what does it do?

.

Simply put, ROBIN is the best portable bluetooth adapter that money can buy!

.

It’s an all-in-one bluetooth transmitter and receiver. Connect Robin to your wired speakers and they instantly become bluetooth speakers! So now, you can relax on a sofa with your phone and play music through speakers wirelessly. You don’t have to stand or sit next to the speaker – enjoy the convenience of going wireless.

.

But hey! That’s not it. Robin can also send (or transmit) audio signals wirelessly from your computers, mp3 music players, TVs and mobiles to BT speakers, BT headphones and other BT receivers :)

.

This gives rise to endless possibilities. For example:

.

You can convert your TV into a bluetooth TV and stream audio through bluetooth speakers or headphones.

.

If your TV already has BT, you can connect to speakers or earphones (wirelessly) using Robin.

.

Robin transmits to not just one, but two BT headphones/speakers simultaneously. So if the kids and sleeping, you and your other other half can continue watching TV without disturbing them. Connect robin to your TV and transmit audio to two BT headphones. There’s no fiddling about with wires.

.

You can use two Robins to connect two non-bluetooth devices wirelessly. For example: Non-BT music player to a non-BT speaker.

.

Robin is pretty handy while driving. Plug it into the AUX input of your car’s music system and stream your favorite tracks from your phone wirelessly. The best part is that when you’re done, you can simply put Robin into your pocket it take it to your office or home. Bluetooth everywhere.

.

Robin acts as a very convenient bridge between bluetooth devices and legacy (non-bluetooth) devices.

.

As mentioned above, the possibilities are truly innumerable. This list can run into several pages.

.

There are many other BT adapters available both online and offline. What's so special about Robin?

.

Well, it is true that you can buy many types of bluetooth adapters online in India. However, most of them are only receivers. They do not have the ability to transmit audio. Also, when you use these low grade BT receivers, the audio quality goes for a toss. The music sounds as if it is being played from inside a well. Your favorite tracks sound less like music and more like noise. Why would anybody want to use a sub-standard BT adapter with premium speakers or headphones?

.

Robin is leap years ahead of the mediocre Bluetooth adapters that you can currently buy in India. It is equipped with the highly advanced CSR BC 8670. Other BT adapters feature bluetooth 3.0 while robin is a 4.1 device.

.

The biggest difference however, is that Robin is a low latency device with Apt-X codec. This means that there is next to no perceptible loss in sound quality. Thus, Robin is arguably the best bluetooth transmitter-receiver in India.

.

There might be one or two models which might have similar capabilities as that of Robin. However, these are priced astronomically high. This is because they are imported units which attract a very large custom duty. As they are imported, they do not have a dedicated after sales support network in India. So good luck getting a replacement if your adapter breaks down!

.

Robin, on the other hand comes with a warranty and has a dedicated after sales support network all across the nation.

.

Let us understand why low latency transmitters are one trillion times better than a ‘normal’ transmitter.

.

Say that you’re watching videos on mobile and want to stream audio through your cool (read: expensive) speakers. You now have to sit next to the speakers all the time or fiddle about with long wires. This is a real pain as you cannot chill out on your bed or sofa and have to keep returning to your mobile again and again to select a new song and answer messages. So you buy a run-of-the-mill bluetooth transmitter online. This device should solve your problem and but turns out that it makes life much harder. First of all, you need to have a PHD in quantum physics, the patience of a mother of 12 and the intuition of a witch to be able to pair the BT device with your phone. It involves a series of incomprehensible multicoloured flashing lights that look cheap and tacky. Once you do manage to pair the device (after reading and re-reading the manual until you learn it by heart), your problems actually get worse. For starters, there is a gap between the video and audio. So when Shah Rukh Khan sings with his arms apart, the words don’t come out at the right time – everything is a bit delayed. This kills all the fun of watching the clip and you begin to get angry.

.

OK, so you are very tolerant and don’t mind a bit of delay in transmission. Good for you. However, a song sung by Shreya Ghoshal suddenly feels like it has been sung by Dhinchak Pooja! The quality is abyssal. At this point, you’ll get so frustrated that you’ll probably smash your phone. So now you have no phone – which means that you cease to exist on this planet. So sad! :(

.

Here is another scenario:

.

Say that you are watching TV and want to receive audio through your cool (read: expensive) bluetooth speakers that you just bought. So now, either you’ll have to make modifications to your property (concealed wiring). This is a tedious and costly affair. You are much better off pairing your TV and speakers wirelessly. But your TV doesn’t have bluetooth. Buying a BT TV is ridiculously pricey. A Robin solves the problem at a fraction of the cost. If you plan to go out for a drive – you can take Robin along with you for BT connectivity in your car. This ensures a safe and pleasant ride.

.
