After a couple of attempts at running rpi-update on Raspbian "full", which broke the installation and lost several hours, I finally have a working version of Raspbian "lite". In order to use the whole 64GB SDcard, I had to run mkfs.vfat, unzip, dd and sync. The apt-get update and apt-get upgrade processes of the system (with lite) took less than hour. This Pi Zero W system reminds me of something like the early Pentiums for responsiveness. I have ssh access (via raspi-config) over wifi and will be hooking up a big USB disk drive to it.

I could not get a command line music ncurses program called mocp to work over bluetooth when ssh'ed in the Zero W. After much messing about I re-installed the full version of Raspbian. I am not sure installing pulseaudio helps! The trick was to setup with sudo bluetoothctl and write a ~/.asoundrc file:

Code:
pcm.!default {
        type plug
        slave.pcm {
             type bluealsa
             device "XX.XX.XX.XX.XX.XX"
             profile "a2dp"
       }
}

ctl.!default {
       type bluealsa
}
where XX...XX is the MAC address of the speakers.

Now I can ssh -X in and run vlc, playing media from the attached USB HDD
