[ProAudio] Bluetooth Latency (or Baby's First Bluetooth)

The PartsExpress units are nothing but connector adapters (NO electronics at all), so of course no delay ... but no ground isolation either, hence the hum!

I’ve been through the same thing, Mike, with the same Monoprice units when they were on sale for $22. My house is not big enough for the delay to be ignored! The only cool thing about those “transceivers” is that they also have Toslink digital if you like that. Hmm, I wonder if the latency is different using the digital connexion? I also think that it is characteristic of BT not the Monoprice units…
I then found audio over cat5 cables at PartsExpress for an even lower price, so ran ethernet to the back room and it works pretty well. It’s RCA, not XLR, and sensitive to levels (some hum happens) but no latency…
