Bluetooth query

I have a samsung tablet that has bluetooth enabled. I also have 2 speakers both bluetooth enabled but different makes.

soundbar is LG and speaker small anker.

The tablet can pair with both speakers but what it cannot do is play music from both speakers at the same time.

What is the easiest and cheapest way to get around this problem, assuming it can be done.

I have looked at bluetooth recievers/transmitters but the advice varies, some say that would work but others say no.

Any advice would be appreaciated.

Thanks

Re: Bluetooth query

I suspect its a bit like a phone, you can connect to many Bluetooth devices, just not at the same time.

No doubt Google would explain more the technicalities, but I believe you will need a device and controller that allows multiple connections - Sonos seems to have it cracked ;-)

Re: Bluetooth query

A Google search on 'bluetooth multicast' brought this up.

It claims to be able to send audio to 2 bluetooth receivers.

I must have been really bad in a previous life as this was my 3rd ISP in a row that used lithium.
Now you're stuck with me because my new ISP doesn't run a forum Cheesy

@Browni

Thanks.

These seem to be on sale on the Amazon American site but not on the UK site, seems they did have them but are currently out of stock.

Will do a bit more researching into this
