I've recently utilised the Windows 10 A2DP audio sink feature (via the UWP app) to get Bluetooth audio from my phone to the computer. On top of that, I also recently obtained a bluetooth turntable for my LPs.
I was attempting to connect my bluetooth turntable to the computer but ran into a snag. Since the turntable is a one-button connecting bluetooth device - where you put the device into a search/pairing mode, it can't select a specific device to connect to nor will it try to connect to a non-audio device (such as a computer since it isn't a default audio bt device). I was wondering if there is a way to spoof or trick such device to connect or force a connection in order to send the audio to the pc and then use the A2DP feature to listen to it. I do get that this seems redundant and I ought to listen directly but this is more of a nice to have type thing.
The turntable device in question is the Audio Technica LP60XBT. As aforementioned, it does have a pairing mode and thus will successfully connect to something like a LG Soundbar or bluetooth headphones that are also in pairing mode.
TL;DR: Turntable can't connect to Windows 10 A2DP since it can't pair to it like a normal bluetooth audio output. Is there a way to bypass/force it?
EDIT: Best guess from the insights of others and further thought, since the turntable itself is discovering rather being discovered, there wouldn't be a way to establish a connection unless somehow the PC becomes an audio device and start doing a pairing mode type of thing.
