    Don't be sorry - these issues are not obvious. IIRC Bluez 5 dumped Alsa support. Messing with Bluetooth is not for faint hearted (look at Castalla threads) and then add in pcp complexities.

    It's not impossible - Max2play provide Bluetooth support as an option (not sure if it is transmitter and/or receiver) but it part of premium pack. A low effort solution would be a Buetooth transmitter connected to line-out.

    Max2play has two bt features. 1. Connect to bt speaker. 2. Utilize BT source (phone?) as LMS url stream. (I think to be able to broadcast a spoken message to all connected SB's)

    I always thought that support for Bluetooth remote control (AVRCP) would be the preferred BT feature as BT remote control are cheap or use BT RC phone apps - instead of IR.

    Using the bluez-alsa project. Squeezelite is actually playing nicely to a bluetooth speaker.

    Yes, but a long, long way from being integrated...... right now, this would only work for the extremely advanced linux user.

    So no chance on a newbie manual for that 😄
