Meerkat Bluetooth Speaker Musings

I thought that I would list the results of using Bluetooth to connect to speakers.

I have 3 Bluetooth devices: and Insignia Stereo Speaker, Echo, and Trekz Titanium bone-conducting headphones.

After pairing the Insignia works, but the speakers are just fair. The Echo has much better sound and pairs well after giving Alexa instruction to pair. The Trekz is great with the day long live and clear sound. It’s like the sound from an old stereo.

Yesterday, I hooked up the Echo to the Mercat. After playing for about a half hour the sound became scratchy. This also happens with the Insignia, often it is scratchy from the start.  But it has never (fingers crossed) happened with the Trekz.

So I am wondering, do the processors get overworked? It never happens when the Echo plays my Amazon music. I would think that the audio signal is not being decoded when the distortion could occur.

So I am asking the group for explanations of this phenomena.
