MacBook Pro Mid 2012 readily connects to all my modern Bluetooth devices except it doesn't see my new Sony SRS XB43 speaker.
I turn off any devices that my MBP tries to connect to so only the Sony speaker is available with its Bluetooth light blinking to indicate attempting to pair, but it has never shown up on the MBP Bluetooth list.
The speaker readily connects to my iPhone 6 Plus.

Is there a way to manually enter the device address of the speaker to my MBP?
I have restarted MBP, debug Bluetooth on MBP to reset module, restarted again, turned speaker off and on etc.
Is the MBP so old now it cant see modern Bluetooth devices? I havent been able to test this idea yet with a modern Mac to see if it can discover the speaker.
Any help much appreciated thank you
