Can Roon use Macbook Pro Bluetooth over internal speakers

Core Machine (Operating system/System info/Roon build number)

Mac Mini 2012
250 Gb SSD
Roon Server 1.7 Build 528

Music files on synology NAS presented as a mapped network drive to the macbook mini (ethernet connection)

Network Details (Including networking gear model/manufacturer and if on WiFi/Ethernet)

Wired network using a couple of D-link switches for everything but control points

Audio Devices (Specify what device you’re using and its connection type - USB/HDMI/etc.)

Description Of Issue

Using the Roon client on my Macbook Pro I can play directly to the inbuilt speakers. I can also pair the Macbook to a Bluetooth speaker and play Youtube to that. However when I play from Roon the output continues through the internal speakers rather than going to the Bluetooth speaker. Is there a way to get Roon to use the Bluetooth connection ?

Hello @stevet,

To allow Roon to play to the Bluetooth audio device, you should enable the “System Output” zone in the Settings > Audio screen and play to this zone in Roon.
