Discussions about the Bose S1 Pro system

Bose S1 Pro

Designed for musicians, DJs and general PA use, the S1 Pro is the ultimate all-in-one PA, floor monitor and practice amplifier that's ready to be your go-anywhere Bluetooth music system for nearly any occasion. 

This is the place to discuss the S1 Pro system.

Hi guys, I'm using an LG oled tv, this model doesn't support bluetooth out audio

 

I've bought an HomeSpot Bluetooth Transmitter Dual Musik Stream Bluetooth Sender mit Auto-Reconnect und aptX für Ton Übertragung von TV Gerät an Bluetooth Lautspr 

 

It's awesome, finally I can use my S1 pro system for my TV but there is a 1-1,5 second audio delay. Is there any way to overcome this?

 

With my apple airpods I don't have any delay so it's not the transmitter but the slow bluetooth of the Bose S1 pro.

Hi KEvinV,

Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community. This is an interesting question.

There's alway some delay (latency) with Bluetooth audio. It's inherent in the technology. We typically don't notice until we introduce video or live sound into the mix.

That may be why your TV does not support Bluetooth audio. It's challenging to synchronize video and Bluetooth audio.  Some advanced systems can delay the video so the audio can stay synchronized.

For the least amount of latency, the you need a low-latency Bluetooth codec at both ends of the connection (for example: aptX low-latency).  So one solution might be to get a Bluetooth receiver that supports aptX low-latency.  It appears that your Bluetooth transmitter supports this, so an external Bluetooth receiver that supports this codec might solve the problem. I can't promise it will. We're talking about two third-party devices between the TV and the S1 Pro.

The S1 Pro Bluetooth implementation was engineered to support the A2DP codec for Bluetooth audio for playing recorded music.

As a matter of interest, I frequently watch Netflix and Amazon Prime on my iPad and stream Bluetooth Audio in stereo using the Bose Connect app streaming to two S1 Pro systems. There is a bit of latency, but it's only distracting if I watch for it. The A2DP codec can work fine if the source device (in my case the iPad) manages the synchronization. This information doesn't help you though. Your TV doesn't support the Bose Connect app or stream Bluetooth.

I can't explain why the Apple airpods don't have any delay.  From what I've been able to find online, they don't support aptX either.

Thanks! So I might buy this one :

My next question :

Later this year I will sell my TV and get myself a projector. I then will use an apple TV that is on top on the projector ( connected with HDMI cable )

will this set also work if I connect the transmitter to the projector? because connecting it to the apple TV is impossible because there is no audio jack or optical

 

second question : Can I use the audio jack of the bose S1 pro for the receiver? Because it states in the manual that the audio jack is for service use only

That looks like it could work, but don't take that as a recommendation. We're now talking about two third-party devices between the TV and the S1 Pro.

I found an article about getting audio when using an Apple TV.

You can use the S1 Pro Aux input for audio. It is a 1/8 Tip-Ring-Sleeve stereo input.

The USB port is for service use only.

thankyou that is much help!

 

the last concern that I have, When I connect this setup for my future projector,

I will have to connect the transmitter to the projector instead of the apple TV, and connect the apple tv to the beamer with HDMI. Will this be the best option available?

so this solution didn't work

 

I think it's because my TV doesn't support aux out, So the one bluetooth homespot is connected with optical out, and then I tried to connect the receiver homespot with the aux out to my bose speaker, but it clearly wasn't working
