Hi all, asking here in case anyone knows the answer.

the problem I am trying to solve: variable lag on each speaker when playing them together connected via Bluetooth to an LG G1 TV (The Stage is the Lead speaker). It seems imposible to make these speakers to play in sync together and in sync with the tv at the same time.

I saw somewhere that the “Transmitter 1” solves this problem and in the marketing material it says the “Transmitter 1” works with “all BO wireless speakers” but when I look at the specs or these speakers (A9 4gen, BeoSound 2 and BeoSound Stage) none of them say “wisa compatible “. Documentation and marketing material is very vague regarding which speakers specifically this Trabsmitter 1 could connect to using the native wireless capability of the speakers.

Looking online, all the applications Or references I could find were about using the Transmitter 1 with Beolab series speakers, I could not find any references of it being used with A9, BO2, etc.

I understand I could buy 6x “Receiver 1” and connect the 3 speakers (2 channel each) as if they were regular wired speakers of another brand, probably using one of the sound heavenly cables, but I am more wondering if this Transmitter 1 unit has the ability of connecting to these BO wireless speakers natively without attaching any Receiver 1 units.

Thanks for looking and thanks in advance for any tips,

 

sincerely

R

Hi R,

Welcome to Beoworld!

I am sorry but Transmitter 1 cannot connect to any of these speakers directly.  These speakers only have audio input connections, not output connections.  The Transmitter 1 only connects to devices that can output their sound to it.  You would need to add 2 x Receiver 1s as well for each speaker that you wish to link wirelessly to the Transmitter 1.

Transmitter 1 is intended for use with Beolab wireless speakers that support WiSA, rather than for Beosound, Beolit or Beoplay speakers.

Kind regards, Steve.

Thank you Steve!

I apologize but my question I think was misleading, to clarify what I am looking to do is to connect my TV output —-> transmitter 1 (with rca cable) and then:

Transmitter 1 ——-Wirelesly ——> A9 wirelessly

 

in other words, I am looking to use the Tv output as source and play the signal on the speakers wirelessly where the signal would be transmitted by the Transmitter 1 not the TV.

But I gather from your answer that the wireless protocols of the speakers and the Transmitter 1 are not the same so that wouldn’t work ?

Hi,

You are correct that this won't work unless you also add 2 x Receiver 1s for each stereo speaker, as your speakers are incompatible with the WiSA protocol that Transmitter 1 uses.

Please note that you also need to purchase the RCV3000 USB volume controller from B&O when using a TV optical input directly into the Transmitter 1, otherwise you won't have any control over the speaker volume.

Kind regards, Steve.

Steve.
