I'm Officially Old

When I was young, nobody wanted A speaker—everyone wanted stereo. Later on, everyone wanted the next level—surround sound. Can today's bluetooth speakers be paired together to create wireless stereo? Mono, regardless of volume or clarity, is a step backward, in my opinion.

Lots of today's best speakers can be paired for stereo sound. For example, the Ultimate Ears Boom and Megaboom, most of the JBLs, as well as the JLabs I looked at earlier this year. They typically support up to 8 connections so you can spread the speakers/sound all over your house. It works pretty well as long as you don't mind the initial bit of fussiness to get everything in sync. But I hear you. True stereo, with well-defined left and right, is always best.

I have seen low-cost boomboxes that allow bluetooth pairing, thereby accomplishing stereo sound that way. However, I didn't know if high-end single speakers had true left/right channel separation when paired together. Were you saying that some do? I did assume that you could connect more than one at a time, sans stereo.
