Re: RPi3 Bluetooth and Wifi don't play well together

First thanks to everyone for their suggestions. I've received the device today. I'm trying to connect a Raspberry Pi 3 to a Bluetooth speaker. It appears to be the same one that DougieLawson is using. Can anyone point me to a tutorial on how to finish this process?

Thanks. Any specific make/model? I've seen CSR 4.0, but not any 4.1 yet.
