    Bluetooth A2DP audio is horrendous I don't think you've ever listened to it have you? Then again some people haven't really used/ heard quality sound and are use to it... But let me tell you its bad and FM is even worse.

    I use it in my car (Clarion CZ509), and it is not discernible from a CD or a directly connected device. No static, of course, since there are no cables and it never leaves digital until the receiver pumps it out to the speakers.

    I think you must have used some low data-rate bluetooth audio devices. They have different profiles - some made for handsfree calling that are a low rate like 16k or 32k, but the ones intended for music are 44k or 48k, which is the same rate music is recorded at on CDs and DVDs.

    EDIT: Also, don't forget that the source material is often compressed - MP3 files, streaming audio, etc, are already more compressed by that than they would need to be to stream them over bluetooth.

    I wouldn't recommend connecting two wired devices together with a bluetooth transmitter/receiver because then you suffer from having to D->A twice. If the bt transmitter is built in, you don't have that problem.

    Parrot PMK5800 vs Venturi Mini

    Has anyone got any feedback on previously mentioned products? I want a cig. adapter that connected via bluetooth to my droid and transmits via radio freq chosen.

    I do not want to connect any cables. Here are a couple products, I'm wondering if anyone has tried in addition to the ones above.

    Parrot PMK5800 and the Venturi Mini.

    any info would be appreciated from your experience with these, I've read a lot of reviews and quite a few are dis-concerning.

    I recently spent some cash to get a radio with built-in Bluetooth.. for getting rid of wires this is the way to go. I had a friend get into my car yesterday and wanted to play some of his iPhone music. I let him pair with my stereo and, even as a music lover, he was very shocked with the quality. He left saying "I definitely need that in my car". I realize that it's not the cheapest route, but the total cost for the stereo, wiring harness and dashboard install kit was only $135, at Walmart. I was worried about going with the 'cheap' stereo, but it sounds amazing, even with stock speakers.

    Edit: it also has front USB and AUX input, and I tried all 3 with my DX, with zero difference in sound.. don't listen to the people who say you lose quality with BT. Using PowerAMP as my player, the stereo controls work to change songs/folders and start/stop, eliminating the need to touch the phone at all, while driving.

    i have this one. the problem is that it lasts maybe 2 hours of constant playing, then u gotta unplug it and charge it. there should be something that will let u play and charge at the same time. it also doesn't connect to the phone automatically, you have to go to your bt settings everytime to connect. so if you think you won't be using it for hours at a time, it's well worth it, but if you're looking at extended play, i'd go for somethin a little more expensive that you can charge and play at the same time

    Here's one that will let you play and charge at the same time. I'm still shopping for a solution so haven't tried it yet.
