How can I connect my Sony TV to Bluetooth speakers?

Sonos Play:1

Episode 1292

Avis from Santa Ana, CA

Avis has a Sony LCD TV and she says that she's having trouble connecting her Bluetooth speakers and home theater to it. They work with her tablet and mobile phone, but not her Sony TV. Leo says that Sony doesn't put the A2DP Bluetooth profile in the TV OS (although this year's models do). That's probably why it can't pick it up. Also, only one device can connect to Bluetooth at a time. So she can't have it do double duty.

Leo is wiring his home with wireless Sonos speakers, which he says are the best option out there despite how expensive they are. Scott agrees, says that wired sound is ideally the best, but then you have wires everywhere. Wireless isn't really ready for prime time yet, and just don't sound as good as wired speakers. Scott says it's similar streaming via Wi-Fi. Latency and interference can cause issues pertaining to video. Audio isn't as bad, but companies like Sonos have built a proprietary network to stream wirelessly.
