Using the Bluhd with my vintage Marantz reciever... works great! Highly recommend
Received my Bluhd 4 days after i ordered it. Setup is simple. Sounds great .has really good separation and freq response is super. Nothing but good so far..
Just hooked it up 30 min ago, and I am listening to it now with Pandora on my 'vintage' stereo system. It paired with my Chromebook quickly and without any issues. Insofar as sound quality, its a little warmer and more neutral then my previous Bluetooth receiver. Given the musical nature of my stereo (Rotel amp and Paradigm towers), warm and neutral is a positive. I plan to listen to this system much more in the coming weeks and months. Streaming may not be the highest musical fidelity out there, but the ability to listen to hours of uninterrupted music is most excellent. So far I'd give a thumbs up to the blueMe HD! It seems well designed and well made, and the support team are winners.
This unit feels very well built. I am using the optical connection and connected it to my old Integra DTR-7.8 that is pushing a pair of Focal 806V Chorus bookshelf speakers, Definitive Technology SuperCube 1, Panamax M5300-EX for power filtering, etc., and stream from my iMac 2019...sounds fantastic. I have a second one connected to a Yamaha RX-A800 for my ceiling patio speakers and streaming with my iPhone...I like the auris bluMe HD unit. If you are looking for one...buy it.
I have to say I am quite pleased with the newer HD model. There has been some vast improvements in DAC chips in the last couple of years the bluMe HD is no exception. With the recent addition of Amazon HD the bluMe HD playback is at another level. I have had the original bluMe for a few years and in comparison the newer model has that extra level of sparkle and air. One minor issue was that the newer unit is more susceptible to EMI but repositioning the unit farther away from my 300B SET resolved any issue. Just wanted to reach out and thank support for their direction and guidance with that one issue. tsearay
