It should be. The instructions say it works with all android and apple devices. It's basically like a Bluetooth headset when it comes to pairing it

You need to buy the Onkyo wireless blue tooth adapter to pair with your Samsung Note 3. The usb port will only work for apple products.

Question

Compatibility with Android?

This device pairs with my two Android OS, but I get no sound. Acer B1-710 Android 4.1.2 Kernel 3.4 & Motorola Razr Maxx 4.1.2 Kernel 3.0.8.

I do get sound with Iphone and a three year old Blackberry.
It was purchased today.

All Rocketfish tech support had to offer was bring it back to the Best Buy store.

Works with my Samsung tab 3, android 4.1.2 transmitts music files via Blue tooth to the Music Receiver fine with my tablet volume turned up halfway great.

As long as it (Bluetooth transmitter device) pairs with the Music Receiver ok it's working on the transmitter end. Sounds like your problems with what ever you plugged the Receiver into.

Hope this helps.

It is compatible with Andriod. Download the AirAudio app. It is basically Airplay for Andriod.

You can also connect via the MHL® (Mobile High-Definition Link), in order to play video and audio, from your Andriod phone.

I have a Note 2 and it pairs fine. It may take a couple of tries. Pairing seems a bit difficult, but its not your phone.

It should work just fine. I would try to uninstall this and then re-install it to see if that fixes the issue. If you're still experiencing issues, you can bring it & the receipt back to the place of purchase to pursue warranty options. This has a 1 year manufacturer's coverage.

Cause you listen to bad quality music?

With good input, good cabling and good speakers all will be fine.

this is just a link in a chain, if any of the links are bad your sound will be also

Have you tried lowering the volume on the broadcasting device? I stream mp3s of 128 bit rate or higher & web music in perfect quality from my iPhone, but if the volume is maxed out on my iPhone it will distort.

I noticed the DAC to be WM8524 - Wolfson. 106/-93 in the stated Snr/thd and a sample rate of 192kHz max. Hard to argue with what I'm hearing. Sounds great! Range as stated. Bluetooth competes in the crowded 2.4ghz free-for-all, so if you are 'banging' wifi expect little a less range.

No red flags so far. Exceptional for 2012, above average for 2014.

It has taken me multiple attempts to pair, but will eventually. This device should make any audio device BT capable, assuming you are using the rights cables/adapters and connecting to the input of the device you are connecting it to.

It will stream music if connected to your stereo. It may depend on your tv whether you can use with direct connection. I'd maybe recommend another device if you're wanting to stream through your tv, as others will also stream video.

I have the iPad Air 2 and it connects with the Rocketfish Bluetooth music receiver without any issues. Except you have to be within 20 feet and in line of site of receiver. Don't know if your issue is not being able to pair up with receiver or staying connected?

Try deleting the pairing information from the iPad and the pairing the devices again. Sometimes redoing the connection between the devices will fix issues such as this. Also keep in mind that the range of Bluetooth is only 33ft so anything exceeding that will start to cut out.

I would also suggest trying another Bluetooth device with the RF-BTR212 just to ensure the issue isn't with it. I would recommend moving the receiver out from behind the TV. Any objects between the iPad and RF-BTR212 can shorten the distance it will be effective and if that object is an electronic device it could also cause interference.

Question

razr m pairing

I was in Best Buy today to try out the bluetooth receiver. I did ALL of the steps to pair my new Motorola Razr M to the bluetooth receiver. I was never able to get the two to pair. The phone never listed 'music receiver' as an option to pair with. The sales associate at Best Buy had no idea how to solve the problem. I want to purchase the Bluetooth receiver but not if it will not pair with my Android Motorola bluetooth Razr M phone. Please explain how to solve the problem.

Unplug the the power adapter from the wall and leave it unplugged for a full 30 seconds. Plug the power cable back into the wall and the Bluetooth receiver and it should start flashing to indicate it is in pairing mode and allowing you to connect your Bluetooth device to it at that time.

If the Bluetooth receiver doesn't light up at all I would recommend returning with your RF-BTR212 and a copy of your receipt to your place of purchase in order to pursue the possibility of warranty repair or replacement.

Dav - I have an iPhone, and I have not had any trouble connecting to this device. When powered, the Rocketfish Bluetooth device should be looking for a device to pair with. Make sure that your phone is in "discovery" mode. If it is not, it won't be able to find the Rocketfish device. There should be some notification on your phone that says "Now Discoverable". You should then be able to link with "Music Receiver", which is how the Rocketfish device appears in the Bluetooth list. Good luck... I hope it works!
