Streaming music directly from your phone to your home audio system via Bluetooth® offers unparalleled convenience. However, many Bluetooth-enabled sound systems lack the premium sound quality necessary to truly honor your prized music collection. Enter the MB25 Bluetooth Transceiver, a game-changing solution designed to bridge the gap between convenience and audio excellence.


The MB25 Bluetooth Transceiver is a sophisticated solution tailored for discerning audio enthusiasts to seamlessly integrate Bluetooth streaming capabilities into a McIntosh or non-McIntosh high-end home audio system from any era. Whether you have owned a vintage stereo system for many decades, or have a newer system, the MB25 elevates your audio experience by modernizing your setup. Crafted to the highest standards of performance, the compact MB25 transforms your audio system into a versatile hub for enjoying digital music from your smartphone, cloud accounts, and preferred streaming services.

Designed as a compact, standalone unit with a relatively small footprint, the MB25 requires no third-party apps for operation, ensuring a hassle-free experience. Functioning as a transmitter/receiver, it boasts Class 1 Bluetooth technology, delivering unparalleled connectivity with audio equipment lacking Bluetooth compatibility. With a transmission range of up to 150 feet (45.7 meters)1 and enhanced by an external antenna, the MB25 guarantees optimal performance for both transmitting and receiving audio signals.


The successor to the popular MB20, the MB25 retains all the MB20 features while introducing enhancements for an elevated user experience. Notable among its upgrades is an illuminated front glass panel that provides insights into audio signal rates and connection types. The MB25 also offers the flexibility to select the desired input in transmit mode, giving you greater control over your audio experience. Finally, Power Control has been added so it can be easily turned on and off with the rest of your system.


Leveraging Bluetooth 5.0 technology, the MB25 supports high-fidelity codecs such as Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) and Qualcomm®aptX HD, ensuring uncompromised audio reproduction. Equipped with a high-performance 32-bit DAC for receiver mode and a premium Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) for transmitter mode, the MB25 maintains uncompromising sound quality and signal integrity.
