Ubuntu 13.04 bluetooth A2DP does not work

I have installed Ubuntu 13.04 in a new partition and I have some issues with bluetooth.

I usually use bluetooth to connect to my wireless headset, in the old partition with Ubuntu 12.10 everything is okay.

Ubuntu is able to detect my bluetooth receivers but I can't pair my device. After googling I found that all I need is to add Enable=Socket in the general section of /etc/bluetooth/audio.conf.

After restarting the bluetooth daemon I am able to pair my wireless A2DP receiver and I see the bluetooth adapter under the audio setting, that means that pulseaudio has recognized my A2DP adapter.

Unfortunately when I play the audio file, I hear the output through the PC speakers rather that my bluetooth handcuffs.

Any idea how to resolve this?

I tried formatting and reinstalling Ubuntu 64-bit from scratch in order to get a clean install but the problem is still there. I suspect the Ubuntu team has changed something in the bluetooth settings from 12.10 to 13.04.
