I.e. a low-latency (minimum latency?) codec.
I was under the impression, that both LDAC and aptX-HD not only produce high-quality output and being low-latency, it is also geared towards proper framing of the Bluetooth layer. Or is that aspect contained in being low-latency?
The question kinda arises why these high quality Bluetooth audio codecs exist in general, is it so we can connect a HD-audio source to a home stereo system or something?
In case of LDAC, it goes up to 24bit at 96kHz, at almost 1Mbit/s. This seems to me a bit overkill for bluetooth applications (unless there's a specific case which I'm unaware of). How do these two compare (aptX vs. LDAC), in terms of quality, bitrate, and latency? Is one more efficient than the other? I.e. assuming the same quality, is one or the other giving us better latency and lower bandwidth or something? Or perhaps is one more efficient in terms of decoding power than the other, so it saves battery life?
Harking back to Op's question, LDAC might be the better solution for him (notwithstanding the fact that a bt-boombox and outside environment isn't the best listening environment, etc).
Are there lossless codecs available for Bluetooth streaming?
