Sony GTK-X1BT Sound Problems

[ Edited ]

Hello , 


so ... let's cut it to the subject, i bought 2 Sony GTK-X1BT bluetooth speakers last year , with something like 10 months between each other ... why ? ... 'cause it's a really nice, powerfull and good-quality built speaker , and felt in love with the first one so the second one was a must , anyway the point of the thread is , for some time now  (about 8-9 months, since february aproximative) i had some trouble with the bluetooth connection between my laptop and the speakers. Why this bothers me so much is that during a party or so ... it's really akward and cringe to see the speakers go nuts, and having to disconnect them and reconnect again.


Problem: the thing goes like this : 1. start up the laptop and the speakers, 2. connect the laptop to one of the speakers, 3. play music (from youtube for example), 4. after a while (about 1 - 2 hours) the signal and the music starts to sound really bad (by bad i mean that the signal seems to be interrupted multiple times repeatedly, it seems interfered , also the youtube video starts buffering and stoping and starting again without me even touching the laptop or the speakers).


Mentions: there's nothing to interfere with the signal , the laptop stands on the desk and the speaker in front of the bed, so no other electronic between them or so ... , also this problem occurs only when i play content from the internet (youtube, zonga, soundcloud ,netflix, hbo , etc...). I tried connecting the speakers through a cable from the laptop to one of them, that didnt seem to work , not even buffering. Also worth mentioning is that the speakers did not suffer any damage , so no liquids have been spilled on them, no crumbs in them , no physical damage , no modification , only thing that they have inside is a bit of dust). Also things like uninstalling and reinstalling the driver did not seem to work.


My solution: the only solution i could find was to disconnect and connect the speakers again , this is not a definitive solution but works in certain situations (for a short while).



Speakers : 2x Sony GTK-X1BT (connected through a double rca cable)

Laptop : Lenovo G500 (Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit, intel core i3-2.4GHz, 8GB RAM, latest Sony GTK-X1BT bluetooth driver - 10.0.15063.502)



1. Overheating ? (the fans are working though)

2. Too much dust ?

3. Windows compatibilty ?

4. Bluetooth problems ?

5. Windows problem ?


Any help is truly appreciated ! Thank you
