Hi-Res Audio using Bluetooth

I have an Astell&Kern hi-res player and wonder if this can be streamed via Bluetooth to my 525 ST without significant degradation, or whether it needs to be wired through.

Re: Hi-Res Audio using Bluetooth

Hi nwmgc,

 

Thanks for the question.  Bluetooth will compress the audio in order to send it reliably to a device, so my recommendation would be a physical connection from the player to the media center.  What kind of outputs does your A&K player have?

 

Best,

Thanks Brandon

 

I have connected via 3.5 jack to RCA inputs - sounds pretty good for my first hi-res experience. Most of my stuff is still on ipod though!

 

Best,
