    It would be great if there was a hack to change the bluetooth broadcast name, I know that there are write ups out there on other products. Can an engineer at Monoprice verify that this is not possible, or provide a hint as to how one might reprogram the name. My OCD whats me to name the Kitchen bluetooth, Kitchen, not Blue06432.?
    A shopper on Feb 17, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Unfortunately we would not have any information regarding changing the bluetooth broadcast name. The name is given during the manufacturing process. Depending on the device you are using to send the bluetooth signal, you may be able to give it a nickname. I do apologize for any inconvenience.
    Will this bluetooth audio receiver work with cat5e Ethernet cable?
    James C on Dec 25, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I've tested the Bluetooth keypad with both Cat5 and Cat5e cables connected directly to source 5 & 6 on the 6x4 multizone home audio amplifier. Both cables worked. The monoprice web page is the only place that even mentions Cat6. The user manual does not specify what type of cable to use. I thought if Cat5e can be used to extend HDMI, then it should be just fine for Bluetooth audio. I'll be using Cat5e for a 150 foot run.
    I have the Monoprice 6-zone amp and an available RJ45 input on the hub to which all wall plates are connected. If I buy this Bluetooth receiver, will I also need the RJ45 to RCA converter? Or can I simply plug in the Cat 6 cable to that open input?

    BEST ANSWER: You have to have the converter because the bluetooth reciever is not a zone or a controler. It has to plug in to the converter to be able to plug in to a source input.
    Is there no volume control on the keypad?
    Christopher P on Jul 5, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: No, it is bluetooth so when you pair your device to it, the device controls the volume.
    What is the Bluetooth range?
    New User U on Aug 12, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Hi, while the theoretical range for Bluetooth is ~100m, in reality it seems to be much, much less. My experience with this device is that once you wander more than ~20 feet away the signal starts to disintegrate. However, this is the same range I am getting with other bluetooth devices such as my August smart-lock and I have a 'small' iPhone SE which may have a small antenna? Your milage may vary and I still think this is an amazingly cool piece of tech!
    Would this work with a Russound structured home audio system? My concern is that the purpose of the wires match up.
    A shopper on Mar 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes it will work with rj45 to rca converter. Part number 13356. Then you will come out analog to your system source. Hope this helps.
    What is the input voltage for this? There is no spec on this device. Thanks!
    Andy H on Jan 2, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: The unit is paired with the receiver. There is no power connection on the keypad. It gets its power through a cat5e cable connected to the reciever at the other end of the cat5e cable.
    Does this unit as well as the RJ45 require any power source? If so what type ?

    BEST ANSWER: The Keypad gets power from the Multizone RJ45 Converter. There is no power source for the keypad without the converter. The Multizone Converter comes with a small AC power adapter that plugs in to a standard wall outlet. .
    Does this unit have to connect directly to the Multizone RJ45 to RCA Converter? Or will the signal pass through a switch and find its way to its destination properly?

    What Version of Bluetooth is used in the Multizone Source Keypad? 2.1, 3.0, 4.0, 4.1, etc?
    Keith S on Dec 7, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: This Bluetooth receiver uses Bluetooth 3.0 + EDR.
    Why are these items priced at $84.99 together, when they are priced separately at $72.48?

    BEST ANSWER: The components go on sale. The bundle does not reflect the individual prices. When this happens it is best to buy separate.
    Is it possible to install multiple units in a home? How would we identify the different units to pair? is it possible to rename them?
    Ravi M on Dec 30, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, you are only limited by the number of Rj-45 connections on the reicever. You can also purchase additional RJ45 to RCA converters if you want more.
    They are each given a unique name (pretty sure) but they are hard coded. So the first one might be blue00324 and the next blue12343
    Can a standard CAT5/5e/6 cable be wired in duplex (4 wires per 2 wall plates) so that one wire can serve both the Bluetooth receiver plate as well as the multi-zone controller panel?

    Do you have any plans to produce a combination wall control unit that has both the controls for the multi-zone receiver AS WELL AS the Bluetooth pairing features? At the moment this unit would require running new wires which is not an option, where as a drop in replacement for the standard multi-zone receiver wall controls would be as simple as swapping out without any additional wiring or effort.

    Great quality, not designed for more than one
    I bought this and one from a competitor that was twice the price. The other unit was noisy highly susceptible to interference. This one is great. The sound quality is crystal clear and it has impressive range.

    The only problem is you can't rename it. Every unit has the exact same name, which becomes a problem if you install multiples in the same general area (made worse by the excellent range...). Good luck getting your devices to pair to the intended receiver, when they all broadcast the same name. It would even be better if they had a totally random name, since you could ensure you were pairing to the right device.

    Long Range, and flexible, even better than I expected
    Before I received my order I was worried that perhaps this Bluetooth receiver would have limited range. I read other reviews that complained about not being able to change the name of the receiver, and that also seemed to be a downside to this. I hooked the unit up in a central location in my house, and to my surprise, I was able to continue the Bluetooth stream from every location in my 2,300 square foot, two story house, even from the garage and back porch, without any loss of quality or audio drop outs. This is very impressive, and it means that I probably won't need to order an additional receiver which is what I originally thought would be required. I imagined that I would purchase two, and place them at each end of my house, so I could have Bluetooth reception no matter where I was. What I was worried about was how would my phone know which Bluetooth receiver was which, since they would both have the same name, and the name cannot be changed.

    Since the interface on the other end of the Ethernet cable supports two receivers it would be simple to hook up two of these. The reason there isn't a name conflict is because each Bluetooth wall plate has a power button, and you are unlikely to have both of them turned on at the same time. You would power up the nearest Bluetooth wall plate and then only that one would be available for pairing. In my case I probably don't need a second unit, but for anyone who has a larger house than mine, or perhaps wanted to have Bluetooth separate for back yard/front yard. I tested the outdoor reception distance at my house, and I was still getting good audio with no dropouts when the phone was outside about 200 feet away from the house.

    If you are considering this setup, you already understand that you will need to run an Ethernet cable from the wall plate to the interface unit which will be located where ever you have your audio amplifier. Though this Bluetooth combination is described as being for a multi zone amplifier, it will absolutely work fine with any stereo that has line inputs. I actually did my testing using a simple pair of amplified computer speakers because they were easy to move around the house and test various locations. So, yes, it would be nice if you could give this Bluetooth receiver a custom name, but other than that it couldn't be better for it's intended purpose.

    Very solid product using cat 5/6 cables
    I have installed 2 pairs of the BT receivers. They work very well. Cat5 cable make the installation very easy and saved the hustle to work multiple type of cables such as power.

    I haven't tested range but they have stable connections as long as my phones are in the same rooms. The built in looks are very attractive.
