Heritage Audio is pleased to announce the latest addition to their growing lineup of 500 Series products, the BT-500 v2.0 streaming module. This new product is based on Heritage Audio's popular BT-500 which was Heritage's entry into the "Internet of Things" anticipating a whole new, additional line of products to the already acclaimed analog classics.

No other current product, be it 500 series, rack or other format, has the features of the BT-500 v2.0, which finally solves the connectivity problems of mobile devices in a professional studio environment. Finally! The BT-500 v2.0 is here to save the day and solve the problem you didn't even know you had.

The BT-500 V2.0 is the quickest and easiest solution to effortlessly connect with mobile devices in your studio over Bluetooth from as far away as over 100 meters.

The BT-500 v2.0 streams audio from your mobile device over Bluetooth and delivers a fully balanced, +22 dBu stereo output. Employing latest generation audio specific Bluetooth technology, the best Codecs your devices can support and a state of the art Burr Brown based analog signal path, it solves the already classic, irritating problem of connecting your iOS or Android device to your studio setup.

To this day this has been solved using mini jack to XLR adaptor cables, but the limitations of mobile devices' analog audio paths have become clearly apparent. Say goodbye to all those crappy minijack cables, faulty device connections and horrible internal ADC.

Listening to references on the iTunes Store, recordings sent by email, Spotify, You Tube, you name it, you do it every day, all the time. Nevertheless, integration has been non convenient to say the least...until now.

The BT-500 v2.0 keeps things simple by recognising your device's best Codecs available to guarantee seamless integration offering AAC, aptX as well as the classic SBC.

Apple's iTunes Store and You Tube use AAC as native so streaming from an iPhone or iPad will result in a lossless transmission, much better than an analog wired connection! Vast majority of Android devices have already adopted the aptX codec, which is nearly lossless and the standard that wireless high quality headsets and sound bars are adopting.

With this updated version the BT-500 V2.0 now covers all of the best codecs available including: aptX(aptX LL & aptX HD), AAC and SBC, to ensure you stream audio at the highest quality possible. Whether you're using a mobile phone, a tablet, a watch phone or whatever you can be certain that the BT-500 V2.0 will detect the best option available for seamless integration. It really has never been easier to access your iOS or Android device when needed in the studio.

The BT-500 v2.0 substitutes your mobile device's analog circuitry with a state of the art, fully differential Burr Brown balanced output stage which delivers a full 0dBfs = +22 dBu output able to drive a load of 600Ω. This allows direct level comparisons while mastering or mixing with Apple's iTunes Store or mobile stored reference mixes.

Providing fully balanced +22 dB stereo output on gold plated connectors with pristine Burr Brown conversion the BT-500 v2.0 guarantees you'll always be working with the best possible quality available.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
