Apt-X provides high quality coding, and in broadcast applications is suitable for AM, FM, DAB, HD Radio and 5.1. It has become more common in Bluetooth devices, allowing streaming of CD quality wireless audio.


"In perfect reception areas, the quality should be similar to a CD (if the source is up to that standard) however as soon as reception isn't ideal it automatically drops to a heavily compressed codec."


Bluetooth can be added to an existing stereo system with a Bluetooth adapter. These are perfect as a convenience product, however they will never compete with the quality of just about any other source.


The aptX Bluetooth audio codec is available for high quality stereo audio over Bluetooth. When incorporated in Bluetooth A2DP Stereo products, apt-X Bluetooth audio coding delivers full 'wired' audio quality. With the aptX Bluetooth audio codec source material is transparently delivered over the Bluetooth link, whether it is stored uncompressed or in an alternative compression (MP3, AAC, FLAC) format.
