Use a wired connection, if possible. Bluetooth is subject to interference, and audio quality suffers noticeably (if that matters in your application).

I can't tell if you're seriously arguing that vanilla is better than chocolate, or if this is meant to be ironic.

But that's pretty much what you're arguing.

That's really the point. Only transfer what you can't buy in a digital format.

You really don't want a standard Bluetooth transmission in the audio path if you want quality (rather than convenience).

True. But I think a lot of people think the problem is the speaker/system, and don't realize it's what Bluetooth is doing.

And on some songs, it's not at all subtle. It's very audible.

Put the speakers close to you (3-6 feet), and in the right position relative to you, so you're getting the sound directly from the speakers. Whatever bounces off that other stuff will be at a far...

I'm generally willing to bet that most of the time when people report that their speakers are bright, it's at least as much due to the room and the speaker placement, especially reflections.
