”As the basis of a budget music system, it’s impressive and has to be regarded as a bit of a star.”- ‘Hi-Fi Choice’ ‘Recommended – 5 Star review’

Punchy performer

Despite its compact size, the Tangent Ampster BT II is ‘full fat’ when it comes to power output. With its 2 x 25 watt power output, this baby amp has ample power to deliver room-filling sound in small and medium-sized spaces. For extra bass, simply hook up your choice of active subwoofer to the dedicated sub output.

Wireless Bluetooth connection
Connect to your smartphone or tablet and listen out loud, without the hassle of cables. The quality Bluetooth 4.0 connection ensures a high quality, low loss connection for a smooth and lifelike sound.

Wire up your TV and music sources, too
Featuring an optical digital input and two line level inputs, this little amp has the capacity for connecting a full system. You can use the optical digital or AUX inputs for your TV, leaving the other sockets available for the matching Tangent Tuner and CD player – or any other sources components.

Wake on Bluetooth and AUX
Helping save you energy, the Ampster BT II switches into standby when no Bluetooth signal is detected. Once a music signal is detected, it wakes automatically – as it does with an AUX input, too. This is ideal when used with a network device, such as Chromecast Audio, Apple AirPort Express or similar product, as Ampster BT II turns on as soon as you start playing music through your network.

Compact size
Narrower than most Hi-Fi separates, the compact Tangent Ampster BT II fits tighter spaces. The matching tuner and CD player make up a neat system that has the convenience of a mini system with the sound quality of separates.

System remote control and outboard IR sensor
The supplied remote control doesn’t just operate the amp, it also controls a full tangent system, including CD player and tuner – making the full Tangent system every bit as convenient as an all-in-one system. Also included is an outboard IR (InfraRed) sensor. This lets you place the amp out of sight while still maintaining full remote control – perfect if your system’s in a cabinet.

Give your listening experience a boost, with the Tangent Ampster BT II.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact Unit with Great Sound Bought this as I needed an amp for my turntable. As this was to be housed in a unit I was limited on width so, frankly, was "forced" to look at this unit purely on size! I was a bit worried about the limited connectivity but actually have been able to connect everything I need via the phonos, 3.5mm jack and the optical (Toslink) inputs. Bluetooth is a pleasing and unexpected addition, too. Unit is nice looking and well made - sounds good, too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointment I fell for this product at first sight & really did find it hard to believe it's feature set & slick design for the price point. Sadly I've been through 2 now that performed like a dream, out of the box, for 4 days before stalling into protection mode & the second unit even died completely. For the short time it performed in each instance I loved it as it fitted the brief perfectly as an upgrade from my ancient Cambridge Audio A1, which is now back in service. While somewhat of a diminutive vintage the A1 is solid as it has been since purchased in 2002 & still drives my mercury M1s nicely. I was advised that my M1s were to blame & navigated in the direction of investing in new speakers instead, which I also found disappointing & inconclusive. So while I really fell in love with this incredible little concept it proved to be minor heartbreaker.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Device! Review posted on behalf of my Dad: During my short stay in Manchester in March this year I’ve purchased Tangent Ampster BT ll amplifier and brought it to my country Bangladesh. I connected this amp with Tangent Evo E5 speaker that sounded much cleaner than I used to listen using Denon 1610 receiver. This little device is doing a great job. I wonder if Tangent Spectrum X5 speakers would be even better and Louder with this Amptster BT II ! Mr. … of Richersounds helped cordially to deliver the instrument on time and safely.. Thanks for everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well, does what I'd hoped I'm very much a novice when it comes to hifi systems and the like, but this is easy to use and works well. It was hard to set up though - after half an hour of trying to work out why my turntable wouldn't work with it, I found that I actually had to connect the cables the other way round - red to white and white to red. I don't know if this is standard, but would have been nice if the manual provided instructions as it was confusing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds great Sounds and functions as well as any amp at twice it’s price. It’s simple approach to design might be the only consideration, I replaced a far more expensive amp with this and it’s great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive for the price I was after a modern amp to replace my 15 year old one. The sound is good in a standard sized room especially if you add a sub. Auto standby was an important feature to me and all modes will automatically turn on except the optical, which would be the only thing I would have liked as an upgrade as I have the TV rigged up, no real problem as the auto standby works so you just need to turn it on via remote to it wake up when in this mode. Overall I would certainly recommend this budget friendly option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big amp in a little box Now working from home I wanted a decent sound system that takes up limited space. I hadn't heard of the Tangent Ampster but everything I read about it sounded perfect for my needs. So I ordered from Richer Sounds, who had it cheapest and of course have a good reputation. It arrived in two days, and is everything it promised to be. Great sound, neat little package, excellent value.
