Re: Does Roku support wireless audio?

Never finished the post.

I have my Roku 2 connected via HDMI to Epson projector. Technically it connects to device that splits the HDMI video (that runs to projector) and the 3.5 mm Audio cable that I can plug into Bose speaker.

Is there any way to cut the chord on the audio, and I'm open to a new Roku device and new speakers/soundbar? Perhaps a Roku with bluetooth dongle that would stream to bluetooth speakers? Open to any ideas.

Short answer: no. No Roku supports a Bluetooth dongle or allows audio out of both HDMI and an alternate audio out (for the few players that have such). Now Roku themselves did release recently some wireless speakers. but it only works with a Roku TV, and I'm not certain if it's only certain models of Roku TV. You can read more about them here.
