#2378571 - Today at 05:10 AM Kawai VPC1 with bluetooth headphones

First post so please be gentle - apologies if this should be posted elsewhere.

I'm wondering if it is possible to play the VPC1 through bluetooth headphones (via laptop of course) I'm using Synthogy Ivory II with a windows 7 laptop. Internet searches have not helped. I can get any sound i like through the internal laptop speakers or wired headphones but im guessing settings within Cantabile for audio outputs need to be changed. Does anyone know if it is possible and if so the correct laptop or Cantabile settings.

There are bluetooth hardware solutions that go:

stereo cable --> bluetooth transmitter --> bluetooth receiver --> stereo headset

If you want your computer to output directly to bluetooth without extra hardware, it'll depend on the bluetooth driver. Those that play nicely with Windows will show up as an audio device which you can choose as your default audio output device. Those that don't play well with Windows will have their own crazy software stack.

take into account that by going bluetooth you are going to add delay to the sound and it won't be ideal to play the piano. I don't know how much and maybe it's implementation dependent but I've noticed when watching movies with my bluetooth headset that the sound is out of sync with the image.

I haven't used bluetooth headset in a while, but when I did I wasn't massively impressed with the ones I did try some time back. AFAIK it also uses compression to transmit/receive data, perhaps these things are getting better, but I very much doubt the signal will be of the same quality and have some extra latency as already said, compared to that of a good set of cans with a wired solution.

I've always avoid wireless things for sound, perhaps I am getting old-fashioned laugh
