Hi Gino,
Quick update, the Bluetooth Plugin actually also works with smartphones to couple for input. Just pair the device you want to play music from and the Pulse Audioserver will play the stream to your next audio device (usually the 3.5mm jack). If you use a sound card, you still need to select the Pulse Audioserver as the output device in Squeezelite, but you also have to “deactivate the integrated audio on Pi3” in the Raspberry Setttings to make sure that the audio jack is not used as the output device.
Also, if you are using a screen, make sure to remove the tick on “Autostart Desktop” under Settings/Reboot, otherwise two conflicting instances of the X Server might be started.
