Sorry but no. The roku wireless speakers aren't bluetooth, they use wifi-direct like the roku remotes. So it won't add anything to what the roku tv has now. Roku no matter what model that have type bluetooth feature are only bluetooth receivers, they can't transmit to non-roku speakers or headphones. Which are receivers only also. Cellphones and tablets are bluetooth transmitters.
