I am wishing to stream music from my NAS drive, to Blue Tooth capable speakers, and an android phone. The PC will be in the middle, so in short NAS =(Ethernet)=> PC = (BT)=> Speakers/Android. Is this possible?

Yes, I use Bubbleupnp and also 2player both are great but I tend to use Bubble more as it has more features.

Edit: I didnt notice you had the PC in the middle, my NAS has a media server built in but I dont see why your PC media server wont do it.

The music goes via wifi from the NAS to my phone and then via bluetooth to the stereo.

Here are the things you require:
1. Wi-fi coverage - I use range extenders to expand the signal, it gets trick sometimes with UPNP/DLNA streaming
2. Media Server - It can be on your PC or NAS. I use Twonky Server on the NAS.
3. UPNP/DLNA Client on Android - This will connect to your media server. I use MediaHouse and swear by it. It has never failed to discover my media server whereas others could not find. I have not tried BubbleUPNP though.

The above setup is universal, you have the same experience of mucic throughout your house through any UPNP/DLNA capable device.
