Soundtouch Bluetooth delay with Amazon Echo
Hi there Bose community, I hope everyone is having a good day. I wonder if anyone can help me with an issue I’m having.
I have echo dots in each room one of which I planned to connect by Bluetooth to the soundbar, so that I can use the multi room function with that system (the Bose skill is not available in England to control Bose’s own multiroom, a disappointment, but I enjoy finding a workaround). Whenever the dot connects to the st300 there is a different length of delay, so it’s impossible to keep the rooms in sync. Has anyone else encounter this? Is there a solution?
its worth mentioning that I have experimented with other Bluetooth devices (Bose soundlink mini and a cheap Bluetooth receiver) and whilst there is always a delay, it is consistent so I can set the delay in the software to compensate. The same issue happens with my ST20 but I have worked round this with a 3rd party receiver into the aux in, there is no useable aux in on the soundbar, I think. Oh, I have tried resetting, power cycling etc to no avail.
Anyway, I look forward to your suggestions if you have any. This forum is very helpful, and you seem like a nice bunch of folks.
