Fluid Audio introduced at NAMM 2015 two new powered monitors for home and studio equipped with Bluetooth connectivity.
The new Fluid Audio C5BT and BT5 monitors are intended for different situations: the first for low-budget users for listening, gaming and home theater, while the second are mainly designed as home studio monitors. They are also more expensive.
Both models are equipped with Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, with support for the aptX codec that allows for wireless transmission of stereo audio with a lower resolution but without latency nor quality loss (384 kbit/s at 16/48 kHz with MP3, AAC and FLAC format support).
The monitors are sold in pairs, one of which hosts the Bluetooth pairing, input selection and volume control.
