Does the bluetooth portable speaker SRS-BTX500 have any compatibility problems with an iMac?

I plan to buy a SRS-BTX500 bluetooth portable speaker and have seen that other brands have problems maintaining connection with Mac computers. Does this Sony model have problems with Mac computers?

No where in the specs does it state that it will work on your Mac...however it might...  But it probably won't be supported... Just guessing here..

Thanks. I just might try it because it was so well reviewed - best in class.

Hello...I purchased on from Costco for $179. I LUV IT!!!. However...I cannot get it to work with my new 27 inch iMac. I have used it on my iPad3, Galaxy Note 2, and iPhone 4s.

Thank you for your purchase of the SRSBTX500 Wireless Speaker System.

 

To be able to use the Bluetooth function, the Bluetooth device to be connected requires the same profile as the system's. Profile is standardisation of the function for each Bluetooth device specification. The SRSBTX500 Bluetooth Specification version is 3.0.

 

Attached are Bluetooth Profiles which are compatible with the SRSBTX500 Wireless Speaker System:

However, please take note that even if the same profile exists, devices may vary in function depending on their specifications. You may also contact Apple support to check if there are settings on your iMac that needs to be adjusted.
