Bluetooth portable speaker for Visio tv

Dec 12, 2016 6:19PM PST

I have tried 3 different portable Bluetooth speakers with my Visio Tvs. 1 of them will only work plugged in and then dies occasionally, the other one shuts of if I pause a program I'm watching. The other one shuts off and needs to,be repaired every time. Any suggestings on a good speaker for use with with my tvs?

But the bluetooth loss of connection and sound quality had be plug in the short reliable cable. It appears you are covering the same ground I did a few years back.

I went through too many and all suffered this or that issues. The usual issue was lip sync issues. Since I found that unacceptable and some BEEPED on the bluetooth connection, they all went to wired connections and a few were gifted to others.

For me, this tech isn't thought through. Why did they BEEP loudly on connect? Bizarre design choices.
