I'm actually surprised to see this thread again, I think the Bose Soundlink Mini is probably the most praised of the bluetooth speakers online anyway.

For attaching Bluetooth to a hifi you need something like this

I think Belkin sells something similar as well.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

If you're looking for a portable option, I've got to vouch for Ecoxgear. Waterproof enough it can literally float next to you.

My partner got me a Sonos playbar for my birthday, it's probably the best gift I've ever received!

What I did for my speaker was to hook it up to my Airport Express via RCA cables then Airplay to it. It seems to work better than connecting via Bluetooth as music doesn't cut out randomly or when I move about.
