    No. Radio audio through though a USB to Bluetooth adapter into the back of the radio is not supported at this time.

    you can use a USB to Bluetooth adapter into a PC and in SmartSDR select PC audio.

    Hi Dave, thanks for clarification

    I am looking for a way, without depending on smartsdr as I use maestro console only.

    Maybe a Bluetooth microphone /headset adapter could be a solution?

    You can connect a Bluetooth dongle to the back of a Maestro via the Line in and Line out connectors.

    They do make them. You will need to do some research on finding on that handles both audio in and audio out.

    However, be aware that BlueTooth will introduce additional audio latency. This is why Bluetooth is not present on a Maestro.
