I have a Sure Hifi amplifier which can also be used via bluetooth. Unfortunately it supports too many bluetooth profiles and is recognized as a headset by Sailfish (there is a headset symbol in settings). The same happened on my notebook. I set pulseaudio to use the a2dp profile and now it sounds quite well. However calls will also use the speaker which is quite a wired experience. Is there a way to treat this as a normal hifi system? Override some auto-discovery?

Does this solve your issue?:

Go to seetings > Bluetooth > enable Bluetooth > Long-press on the specific device under the section 'coupled devices' > Select 'Show device settings' > Change 'Type' to the desired device.
