    Hi, i also would like to see the possibility to connect my family members bluetooth phones to the PiCorePlayers around the house. They are Rpi3 + TouchScreen + HiFiBerry AMP+ build into the wall. The speakers are ceiling or wall mounted. Since the AMP is fitted on the Rpi3 board, replacing them with a bluetooth aware receiver is not an option.
    I also read the github /Arkq/bluez-alsa topic but i am not "smart" enough to test drive this.
    If i understand it well i could install bluez-alsa on my running PiCorePlayer v3.22 and pair a bluetooth Phone or tablet to it in order to stream the audio through the HiFiBerry AMP+. Or is it more complex? is it possible that this feature is added to the PiCorePlayer GUI like the Shairport-sync had been added?

    Hi, a bit off topic (sorry guys) but can you share any info or pictures of how you 'build into the wall'? Maybe on a separate thread?? I'm looking to do this any looking for mounting options.

    Thanks.

    I too am also interested in this. That would be awesome for my garage speakers.

    So I guess there is an element of chance involved.
    Hi Roland,

    Can you please post your config / what you changed to get this working and pair a Phone ?

    Have you tried the procedure described here? If yes, what exactly isn't working?

    Phone -> piCorePlayer (RP3) with IQaudIO DAC and bluetooth -> amplifier and speakers via IQaudIO RCA (phono) sockets?

    Thanks for any suggestions.
    As alternative for Airplay and BT Audio input, I use DLNA.
    Samsung phones have the cast build into the player. the older ones at least.
    Other phones need one of the free DLNA apps.
    Give it a go, If you can reach your set through wifi, you do not need much more.
