The BAL or Bluetooth Audio Link board has been created to provide users with an easy solution to stream high-quality audio as well as aid with Bluetooth connectivity and development.
Watch the video below to learn more about this tiny Bluetooth audio link board that is now available to back over on the Kickstarter crowdfunding website and is available to pledge for from as little as £35.
“The BAL, a development board for Bluetooth Audio devices. With BAL you can do a number of things, ranging from simply connecting your phone or laptop and streaming high quality, pop free, stereo audio from it, to more complex features like connecting a micro-controller, and controlling the connected device via Bluetooth. With an on-board pre-amplifier and pop filter, you can plug in headphones and listen right away, at CD quality.
Since first building this kickstarter page, we have been making ongoing modifications to the design, including the ability to power over USB or the barrel jack, and the change from USB Mini-B to USB Micro-B due to demand.”
