    Windows 8 Two Audio Sources

    Hi, I was wondering how I would go about setting up two audio sources at once. I was hoping to use both my internal speakers as well as a Bluetooth connected HDMX Jambox. I know at the very least Windows 8 will output audio to both of the devices at once, as it will let me "Test" one or the other from the sound properties panel while I'm actively playing audio from a youtube video. The question I had was how to set them both up as default devices so that they playback the audio in sync. If anyone had any ideas on how to achieve that, I'd appreciate your time.

    Windows will only allow setting one default audio playback device.

    This question comes up frequently and unless there is some third party program that will allow you to do it, and I haven't seen any, you won't be able to set two.

    How about an audio Y-cable such as those seen when sharing an MP3 player?

    I don't think that will work. You are dealing with two different sound sources and not just combining sounds.
