How to Pair Multiple Wireless Speakers to One Transmitter

If you are using wireless speakers through your home then you might want to set up more than one speaker per source. That means that one audio sources streaming to multiple loudspeakers. If you have Bluetooth speakers then this may be a problem because many models don’t allow pairing of your source with multiple Bluetooth speakers. This limitation is actually imposed by Bluetooth itself. Also, many cell phones do not allow pairing to multiple recipients.

However, there are some companies that make wireless speakers such as Amphony. Such speakers usually allow pairing to a single transmitter. Using this mechanism, you can create zones in your home. A zone is defined as a number of speakers which reproduce music from the same source. However, that doesn’t mean that all speakers in one zone stream the same channel.
