    Yes, maybe, but not I think with pCP.

    Max2play has a plugin for this, I think it is part of the "premium" deal so may cost you €10.

    Yes, all theoretically possible. But it's not currently developed for piCore or pCP. I'm not sure anyone on the dev team wants to work on it either. I'm not overly interested.

    It's a contradiction in terms. Hi fi 24 bit perfect capable audio player outputting to decidedly low res non bit perfect wireless device. Not for me. I don't understand why anyone wants a squeezelite player to feed a Bluetooth speaker except possibly for outdoor use - I'd use my iPhone & iPeng for that not a Pi
    Pi3 pCp/LMS storage QNAP TS419p (NFS)
    Living Room - Joggler & SB3 -> Onkyo TS606 -> Celestion F20s
    Office - Pi3+Sreen -> Sony TAFE320 -> Celestion F10s / Pi2+DAC & SB3 -> Onkyo CRN755 -> Wharfedale Modus Cubes
    Dining Room -> SB Boom
    Kitchen -> UE Radio (upgraded to SB Radio)
    Bedroom (Bedside) - Pi2+DAC ->ToppingTP21 ->AKG Headphones
    Bedroom (TV) - SB Touch ->Sherwood AVR ->Mordaunt Short M10s
    Everything controlled by iPeng

    PCP ships with bluetooth kernel modules and bluez.tcz is available from the piCore repo, assuming the binaries work I guess you have all you need. No GUI though.
    (I'm not saying it works... I only use bluetooth under extreme duress.)

    IIRC Bluez normally only works with pulseaudio - is pulseaudio installed on pcp. I think squeezlite with pulseaudio has only recently been fixed by ralphy not sure if it is on pcp.
