Re: Need Audio Amp -Bluetooth Direct to Speakers

A little bit of research suggests that the bandwidth of Bluetooth is sufficient for streaming MP3s, including the higher-bit-rate ones. Most people seem to think that MP3 sounds fine. I don't - compared to CD, it sounds compressed (well, that's because it is). For your purposes I think it will be fine, though. A little compression might even be desirable in that environment.

I Bluetooth-stream podcasts in the car all the time, sounds fine. But at home, on the big stereo, I use an Ipod 160 GB with all my CDs on it, in lossless compression, with a high quality docking port.
