Well, yesterday evening I visited my audi, Annemarie, and the Roger person, Peggy. They demonstrated the Roger Select IN and gave me one to play with for a couple of weeks. I’ve yet to use it for anything that much matters. My spouse will be taking me out to dinner tomorrow, so that will be its first real test.
Allegedly, I’ll be able to use it to pair with the Select my pastor wears on loan from Janis. Peggy said I should be able to do that, and not make the pastor wear two Selects around her neck. I guess I’ll find out Sunday. I have a vague feeling from what I’ve read here that it depends a bit on how old Janis’ select might be. We’ll soon see.
I did play with hooking it up to things like the TV, my PC, and my iPad. It just plugs in via a phone jack and works! That’s nice, but lugging it from one venue to another might be an issue, given that I have a mature memory, and don’t remember to carry all the necessities of life from one place to another. On the other hand, there’s the benefit of extra exercise in going back for things! One nice feature is that plugging into the audio jack on the TV didn’t cut the regular TV sound. So, my spouse can watch and hear at the same time, and we can each set volume to suit.
Allegedly, I can hook into an optical audio output on my TV for better sound quality. But my TV is too old to have one of those. There is an audio optical output on my cable box (Pace PX022ANx), but that doesn’t seem to work. It could be that I did something wrong. It’s not a big deal. We don’t much watch via the cable box anyway, more often via Netflix or BritBox, which feeds in through our DVD player.
