    So, I have a question about A2DP ability on the new macbooks.

    I bought the 13", but after my headphones died on my iphone 3g, and just now a new pair came in (great service with apple, called and they replaced in 2 days). But even these don't seem to be working that great. In researching stereo bluetooth headsets i found out that i would have to get an adapter for the iphone for the headsets to even play music and do more than just calls. (Not that big of a deal). However, I also like being able to listen to music off my computer, and I was wondering if the bluetooth on the new macbooks can do A2DP?

    Also, if not, is it a software issue that could be resolved anytime or something? And also, does anyone know if iphone will ever have the possibility of support for A2DP, or is it a physical bluetooth type that would prevent it?

    Bump - A2DP

    Anyone know the answer to this? I just bought the Motorola S9 HD and thinking of using that to watch movies. Will I be able to get high quality sound?

    Yeah the new MB Alum. have B/T EDR 2.1 chips. and they do support the A2DP profile. i have my Insigna B/T headphones and the sounds is fulll duplex stereo. on the older Powerbooks, that was an issue since those chips didn't have the A2DP profile support.

    so your good to go. :D

    Sampling rate settings ?

    Is there a way to edit the sampling rate that the macbook puts out ? Should be since I used to hack the HTC phone i owned to sound better also. I have noticed with the Moto s9 and plantronics 855 stereo headsets that I get better sound out of my Iphone 3g (with adapter till 3.0 FW comes out) and HTC Titan phone than my Macbook. It is mostly the hiss and the lack of depth. There seems to be a higher signal to noise ratio. I have to believe there is a way to make this sound better than the audio I am getting out of my phones.....any thoughts ?
