I've been having audio drop-outs on streaming any system audio to airplay devices (airplay speaker, ATV2 on amp) and a bose bluetooth speaker. Spent the last 2 days trouble shooting and noticed, after much trial and error that the trouble started when invoking ... spotlight. Disabled many settings and locations to no avail. Then in the console I noticed the drop-outs started immediately when launching spotlight, which loads the following: " 2015/06/27 12:12:50,153 PM locationd: Location icon should now be in state 'Active' Disabling location services for spotlight solved the problem. No more airplay or bluetooth audio drop-outs ! Weirdest bug ever ? Possibly. I have a new rMB 12" btw 10.10.3 Edit to add: any service that invokes the above location service state change to active causes audio drop-outs over airplay or bluetooth, such as swiping the notification bar out and the weather checking your location.
