I have been playing music through Bluetooth A2DP with my old laptop under Win XP for some time, and enjoy not having the wires whilst getting audiophile sound thru amp & speakers.
With my new Lenovo X200T and Vista Bus64, the volume is half what it was in Win XP, and in quiet moments between tracks or when selecting songs I get loud pops and clicks - enough to make me fear for my speakers!
I have the levels up full on Windows Media Player, and in the Mixer.
The driver is the latest - "Bluetooth Stereo Audio" by Broadcom, 25-Aug-08, ver 188.8.131.5200.
(I am using a Sony Ericsson HBH-DS220 to receive the music and connect through a mini-jack to the amplifier.)
Has anyone any ideas? Thanks! Andy

I tried uninstalling the Broadcom drivers and installing BlueSoleil 6 - with absolutely no success. So I have no idea what to try next...

And then I tried listening on headphones. Pulled out the old faithful "Suzanne Vega" for a sound check. The sound quality on Bluetooth Stereo Audio is well below par. Crackles on the high frequencies, and still way to quiet for convenient listening on headphones. I cannot imagine watching a movie on a plane with this level of sound.
Lenovo - what have you got to say to this? Broadcom say I have to get Technical Support from you, and will not answer my emails.

I've the same problem.
I owe x200 (Vista Business 32) and Yamaha RX-V663 with YBA-10 Bluetooth receiver.
The sound is awful (still whistle on high tones - something like jitter problem at all the time)!!!
When I connected my Nokia e51 to the audio system, there was no noise and similar problems!
Lenovo - I think it is unacceptable situaton.
I also have tried on VMware virtual machines Windows 7 beta and Windows XP pro. Same effect. It's unusable (except for headache generation).
