    Anyone else tried bluetooth audio on the Surface RT. I have bluetooth speaker which sounds great when paired to my first gen iPad and Galaxy S3. It sounds absolutely awful when paired to the surface :mad: I actually bought it because the speaker volume on the surface is so poor

    The speaker volume fixed with an update and I much better. Have you done all the updates? Many people are having no sound issues with Bluetooth speakers. If your Surface is having multiple issues you may want to consider a refresh.

    I've got two Bluetooth speakers...
    Spider Multifunction Bluetooth Speaker, Black E-PTSK-BK03 - Newegg.com
    Spracht Aura BluNote Portable Wireless Speaker System with Bluetooth A2DP Stream Music Wirelessly (WS-4010) - Newegg.com
    ...and they both sound very good paired with my RT, with higher volume and more bass. Excellent for Netflix movies, satisfactory with music. BTW, the Spider actually sounds the best (you wouldn't guess by looking at it) and is the most portable, but it's more finicky when pairing.

    Thanks for responses. Resolved.

    In sound settings there were two choices to send sound to - Bluetooth speaker (which it was intended for phone calls) and headset which permitted 2 channel CD quality sound. Default was set to the speaker. Changing to the Headset sorted it out. -:)
