I just purchased two Rave Neo PartyCast speakers for use at a pool party.
For this functionality the speakers work great.
However they were also meant to be used in conjunction with my large inflatable projector screen with movies. This is where I am running into problems.
If I use just one speaker, there is a very tiny amount of latency, but this is expected with bluetooth. Its not enough to ruin the experience and most of my friends dont even notice it.
When I bring the second speaker into play is where I run into a huge problem.
It seems turning on PartyCast introduces about 1.5 too 2 seconds of latency in the audio.
Both speakers are in sync with each other, but way out of sync with the playback source.
To make matters worse it seems that turning off or disconnecting the Partycast functionality does not resolved the issue. The only way I could get the single speaker back to playing in sync with the source was to do a full reset on the speaker (BT + Vol- for 8 seconds)
I was bummed that I couldn’t find the older model of this speaker with Stereo Pairing, and now I’m supper bummed that even in mono the pair of speakers are basically useless for anything but music.
What Anker/Soundcore should have done was kept the Stereo Pair as an option in the App, that could be utilized if PartyCast was turned off.
Does Soundcore have any plans on addressing the latency issues with PartyCast?
