I have a Belkin bluetooth audio adapter plugged into my hifi so I can play music wirelessly from my MBP 17.

To switch between internal speakers and bluetooth, I have to go to the Apple menu, open System Prefs, click sound then click the device I want. No big deal, but a bit clunky when I may go back and forth several times a day.

Is there an easy way to have this switch be a one-click affair?

put system preferences in the dock will eliminate 1 click from your current method

I know this thread is a couple of months old, but I was looking for the same thing. Just hold "option" and click on the sound icon in the menu bar. It will give you a menu of input and output devices.
