    dual"dual audio" allow to output true stereo to 2 mono bluetooth speakers? Or is it just out putting the same signal to both. Curious, I have a Bose stereo speaker but also a couple cheaper mono devices, It would be sweet to have one be left and the other right. Cheers!

    End part with 2 different speakers is a real benefit.

    From hating this technology and never depending on it ever just 15 days ago i jumped on this bandwagon.
    1) First i got a cheap CSR bt version 4 dongle : It works but has some flaws Biggest one : It is Bluetooth version 4.
    2) Then this: mi bluetooth audio receiver
    : It is BT version 4.2, it works nicely but was build for phone calls and light usage. Suffers from delays when connected to the BT dongle.
    Then this: Pci express wifi adapter with intel 9260 dual band 1730mbps bluetooth 5.0 802.11ac wi-fi card for desktop pc. This is yet to arrive. Will update.
    4) Then this: Anker anker bluetooth headphones soundcore spirit x sports earphones with wireless bluetooth 5.0 ipx7 sweatguard tech 12-h battery mic.
    Yet to arrive.
    5) Then this: blitzwolf bw-br4 v5.0 wireless bluetooth receiver aptx hd music receiver transmitter audio 2 in 1 adapter aux receiver.
    Yet to arrive.

    2019 i will be immersed in bt 5!

    One very important question was not touched that I hope you guys can clarify:
    Hands-free audio quality!?
    When used as output only, BL4.x was already pretty great. But as soon as you activate the microphone for hands free audio, e.g. business conferences or simply calls or even calls from inside your car, BL4.x and lower always revert back to some 8khz audio with very bad acoustic performance. Does BL5 improve that? Does it finally make sense to look at Bluetooth headsets again? Or will it remain a speaker/headphone only experience for wireless audio?

  • rob mausser

    The issue with Bluetooth, even 5, seems to be urbanized environments. I live in a big city, and while 5.0 works flawlessly in the suburbs and at home, walking downtown, in the subway, etc the sound will still cut out at least once or twice every 5 minutes. This is with the phone in my pocket. So I guess there still is a ways to go with figuring out interference.

    Bluetooth audio steamings is not the same as audio streaming over WIFI. Sonos supports HQ non-compressed audio playback such as ALAC format, in other words, you can play 24bit audio on Sonos but you can not have that audio quality on any Bluetooth speaker.

  • Theo Mast

    What if 1 device supports 4.2 and for example your phone is a bt 5.0 device.
    Will it benefit from the ''better'' version ? or do your absolutely need bt 5.0 on both devices for the maximum range ?



  • Mike Hog A Nator

    I believe the 5.0 has nothing to do with dual Connections or faster data. Gary explains this pretty well. I have 5.0 with my 8+ and can only connect to 1 device at a time
