Lowest Latency Bluetooth Speakers

I like to sit out on the deck with a little set of speakers and my laptop and keyboard to work out melodies and arrangements. However, with my new MacBook, I no longer have a 3.5" aux jack, and have to use Bluetooth instead. My old Bose Soundlink seems to only support the SBC codec, which has really high latency. So high, in fact, that I can't even play a melody.

I'm looking for a portable Bluetooth speaker with really low latency. I think it would probably have to support either the aptX or AAC codec, although I'm not 100% sure about this. Fidelity and power aren't a big deal, although obviously better is preferable to worse. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I could get a little audio interface instead, but I'd really prefer to stay cordless and stick with Bluetooth, although a speaker with a staight USB input might be an acceptable alternative.
