You've Got Questions / We've Got Answers:
Q: My friend has a bluetooth receiver and it works less than ideally. How is the Exile unit different?
A: Performance varies on every device. The cheaper ones on the market tend to have very low output voltage which decreases the overall audio output. Here is a recent sample evaluation testing we did to compare the EXBT4 to the real world competition. The bottom line - The Exile EXBT4 has 2.2V output which is more voltage than most source units. That's premium performance!
Q: In the past I've been told by many people (including Exile staff) that Bluetooth receivers lose dynamic range and will degrade my stereo sound. What has changed? Why is this one better?
A: So true! Up until the introduction of AptX® codecs, the sound quality / audio compression has been greatly impacted on high end stereo systems. The EXBT4 supports aptX, SBC, MP3, AAC and is automaticly determined by input source. The improvement is significant. For Maximum HD sound you need to use a source and reciever that is aptX certified / enabled. These devices will bear the AptX® logo and provide up to 384 kbit/s audio streaming. The EXBT4 is AptX® enabled.
Q: Does it matter where I choose to mount the Exile receiver?
A: The Unit can mount remotely to any panel or surface as described above. What's unique about the EXBT4 is it isn't built into any metal chassis. Products that freature "built-in" receivers decrease their effective streaming range because they are shielded from the paired "line of sight" source device. For maximum effective range, we suggest mounting the EXBT4 in a vertical position no farther than 18 inches from the auxilary input connection.
Q: Is the EXBT4 waterproof?
A: No, it cannot be submerged. The receiver unit is water resistant from moisture and the outside elements. The chassis is plastic and sealed rubber and conforms to IPS65 standards.
Q: Is the unit difficult to pair? I've got a car with built-in bluetooth and it never works right.
A: The EXBT4 utilizes auto pairing within the 4.0 compliance. It is fast and reliable. Once paired, the streaming device will automatically re-sync after the first use.
Q: What's the difference between bluetooth 3.0 and the new 4.0 standard?
A: The EXBT4 utilizes the 4.0 specification. This is the newest bluetooth specification. It is significant because of the low energy consumption and high bit rate receiving. The EXBT4 draws aproximately 30mA at full output.
