Bluetooth speakers

I have obtained some Zoom 4380 bluetooth speakers to use as PC speakers, but I cannot get them to work . They have paired with my PC fine but I cannot find an option to send the sound output to them. The documentation is not so helpful except that it mentions you need A2DP or AVRCP bluetooth capability. Does anyone know what this is and how I can get them to work.

It is typically used with A2DP devices for next/previous track selection and pause/play functions.

I have a Bluetooth adapter which I have had quite a while. Does this mean I will need a new adapter which supports A2DP and AVRCP. Do most new adapters support this?

Thanks for that. I have ordered the Zoom bluetooth 4321 adaptor, so hopefully I will be up and running soon.

My Zoom bluetooth adaptor arrived and I'm up and running. The software with the adaptor lets you connect to the speakers. It's brilliant!
