Looking for the least expensive 42" LCD/LED (don't really care) that supports bluetooth audio. This is for the bedroom and need to keep the noise to a minimum, thus the bluetooth audio option. If you know of several options in the same price range that would be very appreciated...


Thanks,

Roy

What did you come up with when you Googled the question?


I didn't get much of an answer myself.

I don't recall ever seeing any panel listed with Blue Tooth Audio though I think it's a good idea. I once had a Sony Trinitron CRT that came with built in headphone jack that linked to a wireless Sony headphones that came with the TV and it was great for gaming or late night but I don't know that I've seen anyone or even Sony do this again. You may have to jerry rig your own setup with a third party provider.


Here's a list of some but it doesn't come real cheap.

Not a standard feature if it even exists.


So, why corner yourself to a particular set for this item, just buy a BT Transmitter + headphones set and plug it in to ANY TV. If TV has variable audio out, yer all set, but if TV has FIXED audio out then either your transmitter or headphones should have a volume control.

Yeah, that's what I was trying to tell the Thread Starter above in a roundabout way. If he would have done just one Google search, he would have found that what he wants doesn't exist (to the best of Google's knowledge anyway) and he would have also discovered a workable solution by buying a bluetooth transmitter and headphones as you suggested.


Color me cynical, but I am still amazed at the number of people who could find their own answers if they just gave it a shot.

Oh Google is not a perfect tool - yet.


I've been trying to google for an explanation of the half-moon shaped barrel on a door latch. I want to know what it's for? Can't find anything useful, Anatomy of a Door Lock doesn't do it. Do u know?


If Google wants to perfect their search engine, give me an interface that is BEYOND word-base, I should be able upload a picture, put a cross-hair on the precise item am interested in, and that's my input term. GOOGLE ARE YOU LISTENING?

Why does everyone assume that if Google doesn't immediately give you the answer it doesn't exist...? This does exist, here is one from 2008! http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20080...ces-bluetooth/


I think Vizio has about 10 different models that support it... http://www.vizio.com/led-lcd-hdtvs/m550nv.html is the one my friend has, but I want a 42".


I had assumed that Bluetooth would be more common these days than a dedicated headphone jack. Also I have not seen a TV (without Bluetooth) that let's me power on a wireless headset and the main speakers turn off. Which is what I want.

The LG link you provided from 2008 was for a TV sold in Great Britain. I also found another LG TV with bluetooth that appeared to also be unique to Great Britain. As fo the VIZIOs you mentioned, I didn't look for 10 models, but I read the link (twice) for the one your friend has and didn't see anything about bluetooth. I didn't open the PDF of the owner's manual though.

BoilerJim,


I am really not here to convince you that this feature exists, but here is a 42" that is less than $1000 that supports it. I was hoping find something a little cheaper, thus the post... http://www.vizio.com/led-lcd-hdtvs/x....html?___SID=U
