Node2i external bluetooth speaker connection

Post by StanStar7 » Sun Jan 20, 2019 10:50 am

Hello,

I have an external bluetooth speaker Sony XB41 and would like to connect it to the Node 2i.

I tried by adding the Bluetooth Headphone but the Bluesound App doesn't find the Sony when the Sony is in bluetooth pairing mode.

I was able to successfully pair another bose bluetooth headset

How do you pair external bluetooth speakers?

Thanks

Fairly certain that the Bluetooth transmit function will only pair with devices that broadcast as headphone devices. Bluesound have not made any mention or indicated that you can pair speakers with the 2i devices.

Hi Stan, they are paired the exact same way headphones are. However, if you find it problematic to pair, maybe you can try to reboot your Node from the BluOS app > Help > Diagnostics and see whether your Node just needs a "refresh". Ensure your Sony XB41 is near your Node when pairing ...and don't expect your Node to list all bluetooth devices by their names, more likely just their MAC adresses. :)

Best, KriHad
