I sometimes listen to computer audio thru a bluetooth headset.  When I do the computer's speakers become
disabled.  It there a way to listen thru a bluetooth headset while at the same time having the computer's speakers outputting the same audio?

    It depends on the soundcard and what is driving your bluetooth sound.  Most soundcards do not have good power amps, so only one output can be driven at a time.
