AudioControl AC-BT24 reviews
It's ok but not Great!!

It does work, as advertised however it just falls short given the price tag. There are two main issues with this item: First, If you want to use the optical input on your DM-810, this module does not work while an optical signal is present, the DSP always defaults to optical, whereas it "SHOULD" default to the BT Module whenever it is paired with a device, and then fall back to optical input when no bluetooth connection is active. The engineers at AudioControl did not think this thru when they designed it. Who would run BT all the time and then occasionally use the optical input? Really? This was the deal breaker for me, I could have accepted the lower resolution (See below) but I cannot lose my optical input for any reason, it was the main reason I purchased a DM-810. Second, it supports 24-bit streams, but only up to 48khz... Hi-Def starts at 24/96 according to pretty much anyone you ask, so what good is this at 24/48? In order to be useful and worth the price tag it needed to support 24 bit / 96Khz input streams. This module had the potential to be amazing, but ended up being a huge disappointment. Since I require the optical input on my DM-810, I will be returning this.
Pros: None I can think of.
Cons: Too Expensive Not true Hi-Def Overrided by Optical Input on DSP

It is a better way to program the dsp but it would be great if you could use a laptop wireless as well
Pros: Can use phone or tablet to program wirelessly
Cons: Cant use a wireless laptop

More details on the AudioControl AC-BT24
Overview: The AudioControl AC-BT24 lets you add high definition Bluetooth streaming capability along with complete DSP setup and programming of select AudioControl DSP processors.
Compatibility: The AC-BT24 is designed to plug directly into select AudioControl amps and DSP processors that feature an Option Port. These include the DM-608 and DM-810 DSP processors and the D-6.1200 DSP amplifier.
Bluetooth: Featuring Bluetooth version 4.2, the AC-BT24 allows for high-definition low-latency audio streaming directly into a compatible amplifier or processor from a Bluetooth enabled playback device. The interface supports aptX HD, for 24-bit / 48kHz audio streaming from devices with aptX codec, and features a dual differential class A-B output stage, offering a signal-to-noise ratio of 96dB. The AC-BT24 has a maximum data transfer rate of up to 3 Mbps with typical rates at approximately 1.6 Mbps. Bluetooth range is up to 33 feet.
Note: The AC-BT24 does not support Bluetooth hands-free phone calls.
DSP Programming: The AC-BT24's UART bidirectional interface allows you to setup and configure the DSP in a compatible DM-model processor or amplifier. After downloading the DM Smart DSP app from the App Store or Google Play Store to your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone or tablet, simply pair the device to the interface. Once paired, the app will allow complete control of the amp or processor's DSP parameters.
Indicators: Two LED indicators on the top of the Bluetooth interface will light to indicate if the interface is either Streaming audio or in App mode.
