"This level of sound quality doesn't come easily to products like this, which makes the miniBlink's abilities all the more special." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine, 5-star review.
Wireless control The Arcam miniBlink Bluetooth receiver is the ideal way of listening to music from your mobile phone, tablet (such as iPad) or other Bluetooth-equipped device on your existing hi-fi. With a range of around 10m, the miniBlink is designed to let you hold your phone or portable device and select the track you want to listen to, without being tied by cables.
Burr Brown DAC and aptX Featuring a high-end Burr Brown PCM5102 DAC, the miniBlink offers sound quality a step or two up from the usual Bluetooth receiver. It also has the latest apt-X Bluetooth transmission system for superior sound quality. Simply connect to your hi-fi's analogue input via a 3.5mm socket and you can enjoy crisp, confident sound that's more detailed than you might expect from Bluetooth.
Portable too With its cute, pebble shape, the miniBlink is as unobtrusive as any Bluetooth device. Using a mini-USB power socket, it can also be powered by your PC or laptop, making it travel friendly. A separate power supply is also supplied, should you simply be connecting it to your hi-fi at home.
For Bluetooth convenience, without sacrificing sound quality, the Arcam miniBlink is the ideal link.

So Easy To Set Up and Excellent Sound QualityThis is a great little product. I had been looking for a way to listen to my music collection since my present streaming device no longer suited me. The quality of sound from this bluetooth device from both my iPad and iPhone is excellent. I made a comparison between a CD source and the Arcam MINIBlink and if anything the MINIBlink sounded better!

Simple to set up, easy to use, great sound.After reviewing the options and taking advice at Richer Sounds, Newcastle, the Arcam Miniblink seemed like the obvious choice for a great value option for providing a bluetooth connection to my Rega based system. Got it home and within 10 minutes was up and running. Pairing with my phone was painless and reception is proving to be very reliable. The Miniblink is almost invisible but is more than fit for purpose.

Very easy to set up and operateExcellent product and excellent service. I spoke to the Plymouth store on the Bank holiday Tuesday at around 10.00. The product was not in store, so I ordered it over the phone. I could not believe it when it arrived at 12.45 the following day.
For someone with limited technical knowledge it was easy to set up and use. It is linked to my iPad and the quality of sound for both music on my iPad and listening to radio is excellent.

Great solution for music streamingAttached this to my amplifier, started bluetooth on my tablet (and later my phone) and hey presto away I went. The only surprise really was the quality of the lead. However I had one that was better quality (£20 or so) which I used (although I don't know if this made much difference).

Makes no difference when I play music from my iPad through my hifiI bought this to play music from Spotify and iTunes on my iPhone and iPad through my Onkyo 9010 amp which has no Dac. The Bluetooth works well and is really handy but I can't tell the difference in music played through the mini link and when I plug my iPad directly into the amp.
Maybe I'm doing something wrong or the phono cable supplied with the mini blink is very poor quality, but overall I'm disappointed as that's 100 quid I could have put towards the new onkyo streamer.
