    I have an RPi3 with Max2play and a HiFiBerry Amp+. I’ve installed the Bluetooth add-on and configured it for streaming direct to the Max2play soundcard. Both squeezelite and shairplay are set to use pulse.

    I can play music fine through squeezelite, but when I connect an Amazon Echo Dot via Bluetooth, the playback from the Echo is very poor – constant stuttering and breakup.

    Any ideas how I can fix this?

    Hi petercoxphoto

    Please make sure that the Bluetooth speakers are not faraway form the RASPI and make sure that you are using a good quality power supply.

    Hi Mohammad –
    Thanks for the reply. The two are right next to each other, and I’m using the power supply that came with the Echo Dot, as well as the one I bought from HiFiBerry for the Amp+.

    Hi petercoxphoto

    Have you enabled the checkbox Switch audio output on disconnect in the Bluetooth plugin ?
    Have you tried to reinstall the Bluetooth plugin ?
    What is the version of max2play that you have ?

    Hi petercoxphoto,

    did you solve the problem and if so how. I also have the same problem.
    The playback from the Echo is very poor (Stream to Raspberry) – constant stuttering and breakup.

    Hi tommy,
    If you have USB periphery connected to your Pi, please try Bluetooth without them connected.

    i had the same Problem with the Raspberry Pi 3 . The Pi 3`s onboard WLAN and Bluetooth is placed in the same chip and only one works properly.

    So you have to buy a Bluetooth or a WLAN USB adapter and disable the same onboard device.

    (I dont know what to do if you are already using a Bluetooth USB adapter)

    I found that updating the Kernel corrected this problem.
