I'm trying to configure Bluetooth Audio System A2DP, but can't add bluetooth as sink:

pactl load-module module-alsa-sink device=bluetooth

In logs I got the next:

( 110.963|   0.011) D: [pulseaudio] alsa-util.c: Trying bluetooth with SND_PCM_NO_AUTO_FORMAT ...
( 110.963|   0.000) I: [pulseaudio] (alsa-lib)pcm.c: Unknown PCM bluetooth
( 110.964|   0.000) I: [pulseaudio] alsa-util.c: Error opening PCM device bluetooth: No such file or directory
( 110.965|   0.000) E: [pulseaudio] module.c: Failed to load module "module-alsa-sink" (argument: "device=bluetooth"): initialization failed.

Where I can get the correct device name?
