    Recently i bought a set of Bluetooth speakers (Pioneer) and am really quite impressed with the sound quality which they give.

    Previously I had been driving speakers using the 3.5mm which was really good, but a tad inconvenient.

    This led me to do some experimenting and I discovered that the sound via tje 3.5mm in the high frequency area is slightly better than via Bluetooth.

    I did some reading and it becomes apparant that things are more complex than I had assumed.

    So my question is this:
    Does the tablet stream the raw data from MP3 straight to the speakers (and there use its DAC) or does it convert it to something else and transmit that data instead?

    Which would mean that the quality difference is down to which device has the better DAC :)
