To clear the memory in your Home RTX Mini:

  1. Make sure your Home RTX Mini is powered ON
  2. Press and hold the spring loaded slider switch all the way to the right for roughly 6-8 seconds until all 3 indicator lights light up together, then release the spring loaded slider.

The Blue "M" indicator light will continue flashing quickly as if in pairing mode for approximately two minutes. When it begins blinking slowly again, the Mini is ready for use.

The Miccus Home RTX Mini ships with a protective sticker over the indicator lights on the front panel of the unit. As per the owner's manual, please remove the sticker before use.

  1. Check to make sure your audio source optical cable is connected to the Optical input on the back of the Home RTX Mini.
  2. In order to hear audio, the right audio source must be selected. On the front of the RTX Mini there are 2 audio source indicator lights. Once paired, you may select either "Optical" or "Aux" as the audio source. If your audio source is "Optical" and the indicator light is set to "Aux", select "Optical" by pushing the multi-function slider switch all the way to the right, and releasing it.

The Miccus Home RTX Mini features the following 3 Bluetooth codecs: SBC, APT-X, and APT-X Low Latency. Your headphones have likely paired to the Home RTX Mini in SBC or APT-X. As per your device specific owner's manual, reset your headphones and make sure they are fully charged. Do a "Factory Reset" on the Home RTX Mini (owner's manual page 10), then pair the RTX Mini and your headphones for use. Click here to link to the Home RTX Mini Owner's Manual.

Both Dolby Digital 2.0 and PCM digital communication protocols have been carefully tested with major television makes and models and have been verified to work with the Home RTX Mini. If you are having difficulty getting your television to send optical audio to the the Home RTX Mini, be sure to check your television's audio output options by selecting the digital or TOSLINK output and choose the proper digital communication protocol: either PCM or Dolby Digital 2.0. The RTX Mini does not support Dolby Digital 5.1

aptX Low Latency is a Bluetooth codec that features an end to end latency of roughly 40 milliseconds. aptX Low Latency is the best codec to use for television audio because it virtually eliminates lip sync issues that are commonly present when using Bluetooth devices that support either the SBC codec or even the standard aptX codec. The Miccus Home RTX Mini features support for the SBC codec, the aptX codec, and the aptX Low Latency codec making it very flexible and a good match up in virtually any Bluetooth environment.

When powering on the Miccus Home RTX Mini, the blue "M" indicator light flashes once every 2-3 seconds indicating it is in standby mode. To place the RTX Mini into pairing mode, push the multi-function slider all the to the right and hold for 3 seconds until the blue "m" begins blinking on and off rapidly (roughly 4 times per second). Once paired, the blue "m" indicator will be lit a solid blue.

Yes. The Miccus® Home TX Pro antenna connector extends beyond the hole far enough for full connection to the Miccus® Xtreme 7 Antenna.

Miccus devices DO NOT require passkey entry to pair with other Bluetooth devices. Devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, even some stereo systems, may require you to use a passkey when pairing with Miccus devices. If you need device specific paring instructions, consult your device specific owner's manual for pairing your smartphone, tablet, laptop or stereo system to Miccus Bluetooth products. For devices that require a passkey try the following: "0000", "1234", or "8888".

Bluetooth audio streaming comes in a handful of "popular flavors" called codecs. Here are the 3 most widely used: SBC, APT-X, APT-X LL (Low Latency). Bluetooth transmitters take your analog signal, convert it to digital, then transmit it to a Bluetooth receiver (typically headphones or a speaker system). The receiving device converts it back to analog for listening. While very fast, the "packing" (conversion from analog to digital) and "unpacking" (the conversion from digital to analog) is NOT instantaneous. For this reason, devices that feature the APT-X Low Latency codec are the best for video audio. Chip maker CSR claims that APT-X Low Latency has an end to end delay of 32 milliseconds or .032 seconds - making audio delay/latency unnoticeable to the listener. APT-X does a better job than SBC, but APT-X LL is the best for video audio. BOTH THE BLUETOOTH TRANSMITTING DEVICE AND THE BLUETOOTH RECEIVING DEVICE MUST FEATURE APT-X LOW LATENCY FOR APT-X Low Latency to be active. If one device features it and the other does not, they will both either default to the SBC or APT-X codec. While SBC and APT-X both sound great, you may experience some audio lag while using them for video audio.

Bluetooth is a wireless protocol for exchanging data over short distances from fixed and mobile devices. Bluetooth communicates on a frequency of 2.45 gigahertz, which has been dedicated by international agreement for use by industrial, scientific and medical devices (ISM) only. A number of other devices that you may already use take advantage of this same radio-frequency band such as, WiFi routers, baby monitors, garage-door openers and cordless phones. Bluetooth technology allows mobile phones, computers, Personal Digital Assistants (PDA's), printers, and speakers to be easily connected to one another without wires.

All Miccus Bluetooth products support stereo music protocol also known as A2DP.

A Bluetooth profile is a software subset within the Bluetooth definition for a particular set of commands or features. For two devices to connect or pair, both devices must support the same profile. All Miccus devices support the stereo music profile known as A2DP.

Most Bluetooth devices have a range of approximately 33 feet (10 meters). Communication range may differ for the following reasons:

  • walls or other obstacles are located between Bluetooth devices
  • Radio Frequency (RF) interference is present
  • immediate environmental conditions may be adverse
  • the type of software being used, if applicable.

The Home RTX product has a longer working range due to its external antenna and constant power (i.e. no battery).

Yes. Bluetooth manufacturers are required to make their Bluetooth products compatible with all other Bluetooth devices; failure to meet this requirement means products cannot legally display the Bluetooth logo. Just because a device is Bluetooth enabled, however, does not mean it supports the A2DP stereo music profile. All Miccus Bluetooth products support A2DP and will only work with other Bluetooth devices that support the A2DP profile as well.

PC requirements for Bluetooth:

  • Windows XP SP2 or higher
  • Windows Vista or Windows 7

However the default Windows Bluetooth drivers do not include (A2DP) which is the profile that is needed for stereo music support. For this you will need a 3rd party driver stack such as Widcomm driver stack from Broadcom as this will enable the Stereo Bluetooth (A2DP) music streaming. You can also check your PC's website as sometimes manufacturers will have the drivers available for download under the support section for your model. If not, you can try one of these options for 3rd party Bluetooth drivers:

www.broadcom.com/support/bluetooth/update.php

www.toshiba.driversinstalled.com

www.bluesoleil.com/download; This one is a paid software but there is a free trial demo available.

Mac/Apple requirements for Bluetooth:

  • Mac OS X 10.5 or higher
  • iOS 3.1 or higher

A passcode (sometimes called a passkey or pairing code) is a number that associates one Bluetooth enabled device with another. For security reasons, many Bluetooth enabled devices require you to use a passcode. Note: All Miccus accessories use the default passcode "0000".

Miccus does not endorse any specific driver, and it is up to the individual to determine what the best option is for their particular need and circumstance.

A Bluetooth® pairing is the process by which a Bluetooth® transmitter and a Bluetooth® receiver negotiate a relationship with each other. Sometimes this requires the exchange of a passkey between a transmitter and receiver (a passkey is typically only required by smartphones and tablets). The end result of a Bluetooth® pairing is a Bluetooth® connection. A Bluetooth® connection is made when a Bluetooth® transmitter and a Bluetooth® receiver are paired, see each other, and are sending audio one to the other. Once a Bluetooth® device has been paired to another Bluetooth® device, pairing is often no longer required. Each subsequent time the paired Bluetooth® devices are used together, they will connect automatically without need for the pairing process. Simply power the paired devices on, and they will automatically re-connect to each other.

Pairing is the process by which a link is established between Bluetooth devices. In most cases, once paired, devices will automatically "remember" one another during subsequent uses. All Bluetooth devices require an initial "pairing" before their first use. Depending on the device, the paring process can take between ten seconds and several minutes. Miccus products include LED indicator lights that signal when successful pairing has occurred.

The Bluetooth signal LED light on Miccus devices will blink red and blue rapidly when in pairing mode. Once pairing has occurred, the LED will pulse slowly, indicting a Bluetooth connection.

For Bluetooth® transmitters and receivers with internal batteries, pairing information can be registered for up to eight Bluetooth devices total. If a new device is added exceeding the limit of eight, the oldest pairing will be replaced by the newest pairing. (Also see "What's the difference between a Bluetooth® "pairing" and Bluetooth "connection?".)

The Miccus Bluetooth products support the A2DP stereo music profile. When broadcasting stereo music over Bluetooth, 1 device is the content transmitter and 1 device is the content receiver. It is not possible to pair 2 transmitters to 1 receiver or 1 transmitter to 2 receiving devices. This is due to a limitation of the Bluetooth music spec.

Pairing is only required when connecting two devices for the first time; once paired, devices should recognize each other automatically during subsequent connections.

You will have to complete the pairing process again if pairing information is deleted or becomes corrupted. This can happen under the following circumstances:

  • Pairing information is deleted after device maintenance
  • The unit has been paired with nine or more devices

If a device you have already paired cannot be connected, pair the device again.

There are several factors that could be leading to a dropped Bluetooth connection:

  • Ensure that you are wearing or positioning the accessory in the appropriate way. If the current location continues to result in a dropped connection, try changing the position of the device. Check your user guide for complete details on proper positioning.
  • If you have the device in your pocket or bag, an alternative mode of transportation is to use a carry case or arm band to prevent dropped connections.
  • Ensure that the transmitter and receiver are fully charged. Poor battery life on either could impact performance and cause a dropped connection.
  • If you are using the device indoors, other wireless equipment, such as wireless internet, cordless phones or monitors that operate on the 2.45 GHZ frequency may cause interference and contribute to a dropped connection.
  • If you are using the device outdoors, the Bluetooth signal may be affected by environmental conditions.
  • Keep metal objects, such as keys or coins, away from the device and accessory to avoid interference.
  • If none of the above corrects the issue, attempt to delete the current Bluetooth partnership and reconnect the Bluetooth accessory. Please see your manufacturer's instruction manual for how to delete the existing Bluetooth partnership.

The sound may skip or the playback speed may change if a device that generates electromagnetic radiation is nearby. The following are some examples of devices that generate electromagnetic radiation:

  • wireless LANs
  • microwave ovens
  • other Bluetooth devices

Solutions to your problem may include one or both of the following:

  • Make sure your devices are charged and within operating range.
  • Move away from any sources generating electromagnetic radiation to avoid communication interference between Bluetooth devices.

Turn on your source device (iPhone, iPad, mobile phone) and the MiniJack RX, Press the connect button on the RX once or twice; Doing this sends a play command to your source device. Your source device should automatically reconnect with the Mini-jack RX.

The audio jack is tight by design and requires a fair amount of force for complete jack insertion. Once you've inserted either the male to male 3.5mm adapter or cable, give it a little extra push to make certain it is fitted snuggly against the Mini-jack RX housing; twisting the coupler or cable while inserting it may also result in a more secure fit. Failure to seat the coupler or cable properly may result in a poor audio connection. The audio jack is designed to be tight because it must support the weight of the Mini-jack RX when connected with the coupler.

Fully Charge your Mini-jack RX for 2-3 hrs before initial use. The Miccus Mini-jack RX carries a limited factory charge to its internal Lithium-ion battery. By design, Lithium-ion batteries can lose their charge over time. Once charged, please consult the Mini-jack RX owners manual for pairing and usage instructions.

Please send any additional questions to support@miccus.com, or call live support @ 616-604-4449 11am-4pm, Mon-Fri EST

No, the mini-jack can only pair with one device at a time. It is capable of remembering pairing codes for up to eight devices, Upon subsequent use, these eight devices do not need to be re-paired with the mini-jack.

The Mini-jack TX and Mini-jack RX should take about 4 hours to reach a full charge from empty. The red LED will shut off when the charge is full.

Due to Samsung’s custom modifications to the Android OS, the mini-jack RX is seen and able to pair but it will not stream audio correctly on certain models (Galaxy S, Captivate, etc). To correct the issue, update your phone's software to Android version 2.2.1 or higher. Some customers have had success installing 3rd party Android images on their phone, but this process CAN VOID YOUR PHONE WARRANTY and should be done only at your own risk. You may also try to connect to the Mini-jack RX by using the Samsung music player App and selecting the RX from the settings menu. For possible updates from Samsung please visit http://www.samsung.com/us/mobile/.

The Mini-jack RX has a reset switch. It is located on the same side as the 3.5mm audio jack in the center between the two halves of the housing. Using a small pin press and hold the reset switch for 3 seconds. Now you should be able to reconnect or pair it with your device.

No. Due to an EOL component change in the Mini-jack RX, the indicator light stays lit even after it's fully charged. A full RX charge should take roughly 4-5 hrs. The Mini-jack RX user’s manual states: “When charging is complete the red LED light will automatically turn off.” This is no longer the case, and the Mini-jack RX user’s manual will be updated before its next printing.

Fully Charge your Mini-jack TX for 2-3 hrs before initial use. Out of the box, the Miccus Mini-jack TX carries a limited factory charge to its internal Lithium-ion battery. By design, Lithium-ion batteries can lose their charge over time. Once charged, please consult the Mini-jack TX owners manual for pairing and usage instructions.

Please send any additional questions to support@miccus.com, or call live support @ 616-604-4449 11am-4pm, Mon-Fri EST

Because the Mini-jack TX is a Bluetooth transmitter only, it cannot be paired as a receiver with computers, smartphones, tablets or any other Bluetooth transmitting device.The Mini-jack TX uses the A2DP Bluetooth profile which is designed for Bluetooth music streaming only. A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) does not allow for the transmission of data between devices like the EDR (Enhanced Data Rate) Bluetooth Profile does, and, therefore, the Mini-jack TX4 cannot create a wireless network to a computer or computer network. It is safe to use around secure computer networks.

No. Due to an EOL component change in the Mini-jack TX, the indicator light stays lit, but dims from a bright red to a faint red once the TX is fully charged. A full TX charge should take roughly 4-5 hrs.

The Mini-jack TX user’s manual states: “When charging is complete the red LED light will automatically turn off.” This is no longer the case, and the Mini-jack TX user’s manual will be updated before its next printing.

If you're headphones are receiving only either a left or right stereo stream it is likely that the Mini-jack TX isn't seated properly into the jack of your audio source. Firmly insert the Mini-jack TX into your 3.5mm headphone jack to insure that the base / hilt of the TX jack plug is resting snug against the headphone insert on your audio device with no jack shaft showing. Once fully inserted, slowly twist the Mini-jack TX left and right a few times to ensure a solid connection.

The Miccus Mini-jack TX functions only as a Bluetooth music transmitter. It does not have receiving capabilities. Your mobile phone, tablet, PC or iPad® are also Bluetooth transmitters and they will not pair with the Mini-jack TX. Devices that will pair with the Mini-jack TX are Bluetooth music receiving devices such as the Miccus Mini-jack RX, Miccus Home RTX, Bluetooth headphones, Bluetooth speakers, hearings aids and more.

To correct this problem, connect the mini-jack to USB power for approximately 1 hour to give it some charge. If it already has charge then connect it to USB for 30seconds, then remove the device from USB power for 30seconds. Next connect the Mini-jack TX to USB power again for 30 seconds. Now remove the usb cable and press and hold the button for 8 seconds or until the light flashes red and blue. If the mini-jack still fails to respond, then please conact support@miccus.com for a possible warranty replacement.

No, the mini-jack can only pair with one device at a time. It is capable of remembering pairing codes for up to eight devices, Upon subsequent use, these eight devices do not need to be re-paired with the mini-jack.

The Mini-jack TX and Mini-jack RX should take about 4 hours to reach a full charge from empty. The red LED will shut off when the charge is full.

Yes. One Miccus Home RTX unit can be easily paired with another in TX (transmitter) and RX (receiver) modes respectively.

Due to a rare chipset compatibility issue, some customers have complained they can't power off the Home RTX in TX (transmit) mode. While Miccus has no control over the Bluetooth® chipset other companies choose to build into devices, testing has revealed a best practice for addressing this issue:

  1. Power off the RTX first
  2. Power off your receiving device second

Use the following steps to pair your home RTX with an A2DP Bluetooth® Profile compatible receiving device:

  1. Turn your RTX on with the center/power button (indicator light slowly flashes red)
  2. Press and hold the TX button for 3-5 seconds, then release (indicator light now flashes red and blue)
  3. Turn on your receiving device and put it in pairing mode; see device specific documentation for instructions.
  4. Once the RTX is paired with your compatible Bluetooth® receiving device, the indicator light stops flashing and lights a solid red.

Use the following steps to pair your home RTX with an A2DP Bluetooth® Profile compatible transmitting device:

  1. Turn your RTX on with the center/power button (indicator light slowly flashes red)
  2. Press and hold the RX button for 3-5 seconds, then release (indicator light now flashes red and blue)
  3. Turn on your transmitting device and put it in pairing mode; see device specific documentation for instructions.
  4. Once the RTX is paired with your compatible Bluetooth® transmitting device, the indicator light stops flashing and lights a solid blue.

The procedure for pairing 2 RTX units together requires that you apply the owner's manual instructions for TX (transmitting) pairing to one RTX and RX (receiving) pairing to the other RTX. While these instructions are not printed verbatim in the owner's manual, if you follow the procedure in the manual, you should end up with the same results.

To get an extra boost in signal range, two Miccus Home RTX units can be paired with each other. Before pairing, make sure all devices you’ve paired with your home RTX units have been powered off or Bluetooth disabled. Disconnect both RTX units from USB power for 20 seconds or more to reset RTX memory. Then reconnect the units to USB power.

Pairing

  1. Place both RTX units within inches of each other. The closer the better for pairing.
  2. Power on both RTX units by holding down the center button for 3 seconds until the light across the front of both units is blinking.
  3. Place the first RTX into RX pairing mode by pressing and releasing the RX button, indicated by red and blue flashing.
  4. Place the second RTX into TX pairing mode by double pressing the TX button, indicated by red and blue flashing.
  5. Once paired both RTX units will be lit either a solid blue (for RX mode) and a solid red (for TX mode) respectively.

Once the pairing is complete one of the RTX units can be shut down, disconnected from power, and moved to the desired use location. The other RTX must be left plugged into power in order to remember its pairing with the moved RTX. Once moved, connected and ready for use, make sure both RTX units are powered on; they should reconnected automatically.

On average, it takes the Miccus Home RTX between 10-40 seconds to pair with other A2DP Bluetooth® profile compatible devices. It can take the RTX as long as 60 seconds to see and pair with other A2DP Bluetooth® Profile compatible devices.

The Home RTX can pair in as little as 20 seconds or less in TX mode; depending on the device you're pairing with, the Home RTX can take as long as 1-2 minutes for a confirmed pairing.

The Miccus® Home RTX can pair with only one other Bluetooth® device at a time.

The Home RTX will remember one pairing at a time. Once paired the Home RTX can be turned on and off and still remember the pairing. Because the Home RTX does not have an internal battery, once it is removed from power its memory will be reset and the Home RTX will require a re-pairing.

The Miccus Home RTX Mini ships with a protective sticker over the indicator lights on the front panel of the unit. As per the owner's manual, please remove the sticker before use.

If you’re RTX automatically engages TX pairing mode when you power it on, and you're having trouble pairing your Home RTX with Bluetooth® receiver units, please use the following procedure:

  • Remove the Home RTX from USB power for 20 seconds.
  • Reconnect the Home RTX to USB power and power the unit on by pressing and holding down the center button for 5 seconds until you see the light across the front of the RTX light up and begin flashing.
  • Immediately press and hold down the RX button (to the right of the power button) for 5 seconds, then release the button. The RTX should pause and begin flashing red and blue.
  • Turn off the RTX using the center button.
  • Power the RTX back on. With the light flashing blue, press and hold the TX button (to the left of the power button) for 5 seconds, then release the button. The RTX is in pairing mode flashing red and blue.
  • Power on your receiving device and place it in pairing mode, then lay it right next to the Home RTX. Wait 20-60 seconds for the light on the front of the RTX to light a solid red indicating successful pairing. In some cases the RTX may take longer than 60 seconds for an initial pairing.

Please send any additional questions to support@miccus.com

  1. 1) Check to make sure your audio source optical cable is connected to the Optical input on the back of the Home RTX Mini.
  2. In order to hear audio, the right audio source must be selected. On the front of the RTX Mini there are 2 audio source indicator lights. Once paired, you may select either "Optical" or "Aux" as the audio source. If your audio source is "Optical" and the indicator light is set to "Aux", select "Optical" by pushing the multi-function slider switch all the way to the right, and releasing it.

When using the Home RTX in RX (receiving) mode, it will intermittently beep if the transmitting device (i.e. phone, tablet, computer, etc) is moved out of the RTX's receiving range. This feature cannot be disabled.

The Miccus Home RTX has been known to work well with Oticon brand hearing aids. The Miccus Home RTX has had compatibility issues with other hearing aid brands; it is recommended that all users of hearing aids consult with customer support before purchasing the RTX for use with hearing aids: support@miccus.com, live phone support Monday-Friday 11am-4pm EST 616-604-4449.

The Miccus Home RTX Mini features the following 3 Bluetooth codecs: SBC, APT-X, and APT-X Low Latency. Your headphones have likely paired to the Home RTX Mini in SBC or APT-X. As per your device specific owner's manual, reset your headphones and make sure they are fully charged. Do a "Factory Reset" on the Home RTX Mini (owner's manual page 10), then pair the RTX Mini and your headphones for use. Click here to link to the Home RTX Mini Owner's Manual.

The Home RTX may distort if you're feeding audio to the RTX directly from your stereo components; it was not designed to receive audio this way. Use a headphone jack, or a stereo auxiliary output to feed the RTX an audio signal. Standard consumer line level is rated + or - 4dB, and the RTX is rated + or -6dB. On paper, all stereo AUX outputs should feed the RTX a clean, clear audio signal. Even so, some customers have reported a distorted signal when using an auxiliary output from their home stereo receiver. In such cases, Miccus Inc. recommends purchasing a line level controller.

The Home RTX is designed to receive a signal from your stereo's auxiliary output (RCA) or your stereo's headphone output (3.5mm). Both types of outputs will feed the RTX the necessary level of audio for proper operation referred to as "line level". Though not as common, some stereo manufacturers do use RCA connectors for connecting speakers to a stereo receiver. DO NOT use RCA speaker outputs to feed the RTX "TX Audio In" an audio signal. Speaker outputs are not "line level" and may damage the RTX.

The new procedure for getting your Miccus Home RTX into TX pairing mode is to double press the TX button quickly (press and release the TX button two times quickly). When in pairing mode the RTX indicator lights should be blinking quickly between red and blue. The Home RTX manual will be corrected upon next printing.

Both Dolby Digital and PCM digital communication protocols have been carefully tested with major television makes and models and have been verified to work with the Home RTX Mini. If you are having difficulty getting your television to send optical audio to the the Home RTX Mini, be sure to check your television's audio output options by selecting the digital or TOSLINK output and choose the proper digital communication protocol: either PCM or Dolby Digital.

The power button (center button) on the Miccus Home RTX is used for both powering on and powering off the RTX. To turn the RTX on, press and hold the RTX's center button for roughly 3 seconds until the indicator light comes on. To turn the RTX off, press and hold the center button for roughly 3 seconds until the indicator light turns off.

When powering on the Miccus Home RTX Mini, the blue "M" indicator light flashes once every 2-3 seconds indicating it is in standby mode. To place the RTX Mini into pairing mode, push the multi-function slider all the to the right and hold for 3 seconds until the blue "m" begins blinking on and off rapidly (roughly 4 times per second). Once paired, the blue "m" indicator will be lit a solid blue.

Though the Home RTX is both a Bluetooth® transmitter and a Bluetooth® receiver, it can only operate as one or the other. The Home RTX is not designed to receive and transmit at the same time.

Yes. If you own two previously paired Home RTX units, as long as one of them remains plugged in, they should reconnect with each other when both have power and both units are turned on. If, however, both units are unplugged, they will need to be re-paired.

We have discovered that some of the recent Miccus Home RTX units have shipped with the wrong type of antenna connector. Please check your antenna connector for the center male pin, this is a small copper pin that sticks out about 1/4" from of the center of the antenna. If your antenna is missing the center pin then please email us at support@miccus.com for a free replacement.

The Miccus Home RTX is a high powered transmitter and receiver, and it may cause radio interference with your stereo amplifier. Try moving the Home RTX away from your audio amplifier.

The Miccus Home RTX can be powered from your computer's USB port. Should you choose to use your computer as the USB power source for your Home RTX, you may experience interference noise in your audio stream. For a number of reasons, NOT ALL USB SOURCES PROVIDE CLEAN POWER. Try using a different USB port for power or use the suppled AC to USB wall adapter.

The Miccus® Pool Party SPX9 owner’s manual states the “red LED lights solid during charging”; this is a misprint. The manual should read "The Pool Party SPX9 charging light blinks red when charging".

The MULTI-FUNCTION button on the Miccus® Pool Party SPX9 acts as a POWER ON/OFF button, a PAUSE/PLAY button, and an ANSWER CALL button.

  • POWER ON/OFF: press and hold the MULTI-FUNCTION button for 3 seconds; the Pool Party will power on and sound 4 ascending beeps. Once paired with a device it will sound ascending beeps quickly to indicate a Bluetooth® connection has been made.
  • PLAY/PAUSE: While streaming music directly from your smartphone, tablet or computer, quickly press and release the MULTI-FUNCTION button to pause music, and press again to resume playback.
  • ANSWER CALL: The Miccus® Pool Party SPX9 has built-in microphone technology for hands free calling. If a call comes in while you're streaming music from your smartphone to the Miccus® Pool Party SPX9, press the MULTI-FUNCTION button to answer the call. Press the MULTI-FUNCTION button again to hang up your call when finished.

On page 4 of the Miccus eXtreme SPX7 owners manual it states: “To remove the mounting hole cover (Fig. 1B), unscrew it from the speaker using a counter clockwise motion". The actual instruction for removing the mounting hole cover should read as follows: To remove the mounting hole cover (Fig. 1B), unscrew it from the speaker using a CLOCKWISE motion.

During playback the Mini-jack AX4's multi-function button works for two different commands:

  • pause/play (push button once)
  • goto next track (push button quickly two times)

Locate the microphone on the side of the AX4 on the end furthest from the jack itself; The microphone appears as a small hole about the size of a pin. Use the built-in swivel jack technology to position the microphone as close to you as your auxiliary jack allows.

There are three ways to answer an incoming call while using your smartphone to stream music to your Mini-jack AX4:

  • Answer your smartphone as you typically do
  • Press the Multi-function button on the AX4

Make sure all Bluetooth transmitting devices (smartphones, computers, tablets, etc...) you've previously paired with your headset or speaker system are either turned off or have their Bluetooth functionality disabled. Make sure the TX4 and both your receiving devices are fully charged before pairing. For the pairing process, the TX4 and the device you're pairing with will need to be right next to each other.

1) Power on your 1st receiving device (headset, speaker system, etc...) and put it into pairing mode. You will need to follow the instructions for your specific device(s).

2) Press and hold the multi-function button on the TX4 to power it on, but keep holding down the multi-function button until you see the LED blinking red and blue. When the LED is blinking red and blue the TX4 is in pairing mode.

3) Once the TX4 is paired with the first headset, the TX4's indicator light will blink blue several times, blink red once, then blink blue every 3-5 seconds.

4) Power off the TX4 by holding down the multi-function button for 5-10 seconds. Just before shutting down, the TX4 will flash red once and the light will turn off. Then, power off the 1st paired headset.

5) Repeat steps 1-4 to pair your 2nd headset with the TX4.

6) Once the 2nd headset is paired with the TX4, power on the 1st headset (do not put the 1st headset back into pairing mode), then wait 5-10 seconds. To indicate a reconnection with the 1st headset, the TX4's indicator light flashes red once, then goes back to blinking blue every 3-5 seconds.

7) Enjoy your music!

  • With the Mini-Jack TX4 powered off, place it into pairing mode by pressing and holding the MULTI-FUNCTION BUTTON for 8 seconds or until both red and blue LEDs flash rapidly. This single button push and hold will first power on the TX4, and, second, it will place the device into pairing mode. If you let go of the MULTI-FUNCTION BUTTON before seeing both red and blue LEDs flash rapidly you will need to power the device off and try again.
  • Place the TX4 right next to the Bluetooth® receiving unit with which you're trying to pair.
  • Power on your Bluetooth® receiving unit, and place it into pairing mode.
  • Once the Mini-jack TX4 and your receiving device recognize and pair with each other, the TX4s blue LED will slowly flash on and off indicating a paired connection.
  • To pair a second receiving device, power off both your first paired device and the Mini-jack TX4 then follow the same pairing directions with the second receiving device.
  • Once the second device is paired, turn the first device back on and it will automatically reconnect to the Mini-jack TX4. Some devices may require the user to quickly press and release the Mini-jack TX4s Multi-function button for audio to reconnect. In such cases, if pressing the MULTI-FUNCTION BUTTON does not reconnect your first device to the dual pairing, it is recommended to start the entire pairing process again.

Note: When pairing to any receiving device, the TX4 will begin transmitting its audio feed immediately. It will then stop for 1-2 seconds and buffer the audio so it can begin transmitting again. This is a design feature of the TX4.

To perform a factory reset on your Mini-jack TX4 do the following: With the TX4 powered off, press and hold the multi-function button for 15-18 seconds. The TX4 will power on, cycle through a pairing mode (indicated by red and blue lights flashing quickly), then the TX4 will power off. Once the TX4 powers off, immediately release the multi-function button. At this point, the reset is complete.

When powered off, put the TX4 into pairing mode by pressing and holding the multi-function button for 8 seconds, or until the device indicator lights flash red and blue. The TX4 will power on after roughly 3 seconds, but you must continue holding down the multi-function button in order to place the TX4 into pairing mode. Once paired, you may use the standard on off functions of the multi-function button in accordance with the user manual.

The Mini-jack TX4 accepts AVRCP commands from Bluetooth® headphones that are equipped with AVRCP. A key indicator that your headphones have this functionality is that your headphones have pause / play or next / previous track buttons on them. These buttons make reconnecting to your paired TX4 easy. If your headphones have this functionality, pressing the play / pause button on your headphones and the TX4 will reconnect to them without requiring a re-pairing of the two. For future use, simply leave your TX4 connected to USB power, and leave your TX4 powered on. Before the next use, power your fully charged headphones on, and press the play / pause button to reconnect to the TX4.

The Miccus® Mini-jack TX4 features Bluetooth® version 4.0. While all versions of Bluetooth® are backwards compatible, Miccus Inc. recommends using the TX4's dual link pairing feature with receiving device chipsets that support multi-point technology.

Miccus Inc. recommends using the TX4's dual link pairing feature with receiving device Bluetooth® chipsets that support multi-point technology.
