I just want to reiterate the current status of Bluetooth for all new users and readers here:
– The Raspberry Pi 3 Bluetooth module can cause dropouts when the Pi has a high load (mostly occurs after ca. 3 hours of playback)
– A Bluetooth dongle solves this issue and lets you use a Bluetooth connection for non-stop playback via LMS or Max2Play Audio Player
(we sucessfully tested and recommend a Bluetooth V4.0 USB dongle)
– This solution does not change individual’s Bluetooth speaker sleep mode. If you want to use it for 24/7 activity, make sure that it keeps itself paired.
