Hello Bose community!
I have a Soundbar 300 that I want to connect to a Pro-Ject Essential III Bluetooth turntable (https://www.project-audio.com/en/product/essential-iii-bluetooth/)
The truntable has a BT button that you can press for it to broadcast its BlueTooth identifier. When pressing that button, I can see it in my phone's BT menu.
The Soundbar 300 can also be discovered if I go in the app and tell it to connect to a BT device. I can also see it from my phone.
But my question is... How can I connect the two?!
The challenge is that both of them are discoverable, but none of them can discover other devices 🙂

Thanks for posting in the community, I am sorry to hear you are having issues connecting your devices. I would be more than happy to offer some help to try to get them to connect together, I would recommend clearing the pairing list of both products and doing a reset on the Soundbar 300.
To clear the soundbar's pairing list:
• On the remote control, press and hold the Bluetooth button for 10 seconds until the soundbar's Bluetooth indicator blinks white twice and a tone is heard
Perform a soundbar reset by following these steps:
• Turn the soundbar off
• Unplug the soundbar power cord from the power outlet
• Wait 30 seconds
• Reconnect the power cord
• Wait 30 seconds for the system to reboot
After looking at the product specs I see that there is an RCA connection which could potentially be used instead to connect the two devices, there are some great pointers in this community thread that might help you with connecting through RCA.
I hope this helps, let me know how you get on!

hey Bogdan R
i am trying to connect my Bose soundbar 700 to a project 3. And I can’t connect them.
I have been able to connect the project 3 to other Bluetooth speakers, but not the soundbar.
how did you connect through Alexa?
