BC127 as A2DP source - connected headset receives only Mono audio

Hello,
Can any one tell me if the BC127 supports sending STEREO audio from the (stereo) microphone input (I’m using the BC127 dev board), and sending that via A2DP to a bluetooth headset. The input to the BC127 dev board is an iPhone.

Currently I only receive Mono audio.

Here’s my current config:

Hi 611nwllc

According to Melody Audio 7.x User Guide r3.pdf
Additional A2DP features include True Wireless Stereo (TWS), Dual Stream, and Talkback.

True Wireless Stereo (TWS)
Melody 7.x includes True Wireless Stereo (TWS) support with SBC or aptX codecs. TWS allows two modules to connect to each other and share audio that is streamed to one of them (A2DP Source, or analog input). Each module can be configured for Left, Right, or Stereo channels using the TWS_CONFIG configuration. The True Wireless Stereo feature allows the use case for TWS speakers over Bluetooth.

Please use TWS_CONFIG= ON 0 0 command to enable TWS auto-connect when the A2DP source connects

Please refer to page 112 in Melody Audio 7.x User Guide r3.pdf for more details.

Hello Donald,
I was able to resolve the issue - when connection “line-in” audio to the development board (in my case from an iphone) the MIC BIAS must be turned on or else the audio sent over the A2DP link sounds like Mono. I thank you for your time.
