Hi there, I have had my Spark amp for about 2 weeks. Never got it running until today. The bluetooth was just killing me. It wouldn't identify or interrogate. I tried the usual links, forums, you-tubes. Everyone complaining about the hum. Only clues for Bluetooth problems. The recommended wireless accessory for instruments and/or hooking up the provided USB cable to your computer seems to provide adequate grounding to stop the hum. For Bluetooth, It was less clear. I read turn off other bluetooth devices but that didn't do it all by itself. I upgraded my phone. Fully charged it. Still no bluetooth. I was almost resigned to using the speaker on the phone when I discovered an app called Bluetooth Inspector. I ran it and discovered 27 Bluetooth devices. It would nearly impossible to shut them all off, and I don't believe Spark 40 has a very smart computer inside. I charged the phone as much as I could, put it right beside the amp, followed the regular instructions and my Iphone finally discovered the amp. I have been having a blast ever since. I believe you require a fairly new phone. It's just beating yourself up using an older one. Here is a pretty good link to other fixes, https://www.techlicious.com/how-to/how-to-fix-bluetooth-pairing-problems/
Can't wait to get in depth. :)

Maybe conflicts with other bluetooth devices or new versions of IOS?

Thanks for the detailed information and ‘Bluetooth Inspector’ app information. I didn’t have any problems linking to either my iPhone 6s or iPad Pro Gen 3 devices, although I almost exclusively use the iPad.
I believe a number or people have been helped by ‘Spark’s Finest’ iWatch information. I haven’t personally had an issue with my iWatch causing interference; however everyone’s setup is different, and I’ve forwarded it to others in the past…
