Enables Bluetooth sources to feed SKAA audio networks

Nadja = Networked Bluetooth. Read on to learn about the bitchinest pimped-out Bluetooth available in this solar system.

Without a doubt, Nadja is the weirdest SKAA transmitter. First, Nadja is a chip technology that’s built right into a speaker —unlike the other SKAA transmitters, Nadja’s not a separate thingamabobber you can hold in your hand. Second, Nadja speakers accept Bluetooth wireless audio. Third—and this is a doozy—Nadja will send that Bluetooth audio to 4 more speakers —for a grand total of 5. Cool, huh? We call this feature Relay.

The Nadja speaker doing that Relay thang is called the Hub. The other 4 speakers are called Satellites. The Hub and up to 4 Satellites are collectively called a Nadja cell. What’s really cool is that the Satellites can be absolutely any SKAA receiver (any SKAA headphone, speaker, receive box and so forth). You heard right, of the 5, only the Hub needs the special Nadja chip; the Satellites only need ordinary SKAA receiver chips.

A speaker with the Nadja chip inside can be either a Hub or a Satellite. The mode is up to you. When you set it to be a Satellite, it becomes a stock SKAA receiver —and therefore it can accept SKAA audio from a Nadja Hub speaker, or, any other SKAA transmitter. Nifty.

Bluetooth is not the only way you can feed audio into a Nadja cell. Just plug an AUX cable into the Hub and feed up to 5 speakers from your AUX audio source.  

Let me further illustrate this important point. Take, for example, the Nadja-equipped Ryobi Score Speakers shown above. The Ryobi Score Hub can actually be fed audio in 3 different ways: Bluetooth, AUX and even via its very own built-in FM Tuner. The Ryobi Score Hub Speaker plays that audio itself and also Relays it to another 4 Satellites in its network giving you a grand total of 5 speakers playing the same thing. Yup ... it's smokin' good. You know, it's fine if you want to duck out and run to The Home Depot to pick some up ... you can finish reading this later. 

Nadja works perfectly with the Bluetooth that’s in your phone, regardless of what brand and model you have —it doesn’t need your phone to have any particular Bluetooth add-ons.

Nadja works with zero software.

Nadja cares neither if there's Wi-Fi around, nor if your circumstances have blessed you with the password. Nadja will still do its job, because it doesn’t rely on Wi-Fi.

 Nerd Notes:

  1. Nadja surgically corrects the latency on the Hub speaker, ensuring that audio emanates from the Hub and all four Satellites precisely synchronized. That’s right, our small army of alpha nerds sweat every detail.

  2. When Nadja receives a Bluetooth audio stream and then relays it via SKAA, the audio stays in digital form throughout the whole process. Nope, we don’t cheat by using analog, even though that would have been sooooooo much easier. The result: Nadja has the best possible audio quality. The alpha nerds strike again.

  3. Nadja accepts audio from any Bluetooth device which supports transmission of stereo audio —that is, which implements the Bluetooth A2DP profile.

 Run up to five Nadja cells in your house at the same time. That’s up to 25 speakers in your house. Ya-hoo!
