Connecting a poly sync 60 to a poly X30... can it be done?


Connecting a poly sync 60 to a poly X30... can it be done?

hi.  I'm a little under whelmed by the speaker that comes with the x30 while the rest of the codec is amazing.  is it possible to route audio output through the USB-C port to a poly sync 60 or other speaker device?  or can you route audio through Bluetooth or WIFI to some other 3rd party speaker setup?  Alternatively, if the HDMI cable that sends video to a display could also pass audio, could you choose to use the speakers built into a TV for audio?

Hi @Cheezegr8r 


I have Sync20 and it works with Studio X30. Tested it in Teams mode, so it should work in other modes too.

In audio settings you can find one important option for your case - "Enable USB Audio". With that, after connecting Sync (either directly via USB or paired to BT600 dongle), it shows up as:

  • USB Speakerphone Input
  • USB Speakerphone Output


Tested it with USB-A port, can't tell you how it will behave when connected to USB-C port.

However I've found one minor problem - when there is incoming call, notification sound is really quiet. If you try to make it louder using Sync volume buttons, notification sound disappears totally. But if call is answered, audio works normally.


So in general - answer to your question is: yes. But as always it's best if you test it out yourself.

Hello @LKVer and @Cheezegr8r ,


Welcome to the Poly Community.

I checked the last couple of release notes and whilst this works I cannot find it as stated as being a supported setup.




if you want to get this into support I suggest you mention EN-199527 or EN-202157

Hey @Cheezegr8r ...

Sync devices are currently not supported on Studio X or G7500.

You can choose to use the TV´s speakers for sure from the webui (s. screenshot attached)




Kind regards,
